I leave in less than a week! As I prepare to depart, I would be remiss if I did not stop to thank everyone who has helped me get here: family, teachers, and friends. I will miss all of you, and can’t wait to share all of my German adventures with you!
Brandon and Nicole threw me an amazing goodbye party in Huntsville. Had a great last weekend in Rocket City catching up with friends.
Two of my high school friends who put up with my craziness! Yvonne always encouraged me when German got hard, and I’m so thankful that she did.
The Stoess family has been nothing but kind to the Longs, whether it was giving advice or opening their home to us when our power went out in the winter.
Emily is everything that I am not. I can listen to her stories for hours. She finds the adventure in everything, something I hope to do in Germany.
Meg made this for me. I can’t wait to fill it with memories, but it already has a special place in my heart.
Words can’t describe what these two have done for me and for how much support they are giving me as I head to Germany.
Mikaela is studying at SCAD, and always brings fun to the party.
The Townsends have been like a second set of parents here in Crestwood. I’ll miss our fun conversations and evenings spent in my backyard.
