The Dearly Departed

No, no...no one's dead.  Just departed.  And very dear.

Our friends Cullen and Myca have taken off to the wild blue yonder, otherwise known as Delaware.  We're so happy for them, and so proud.  Cullen got an awesome job offer there and so they went!  Really, I am excited for their new adventures and even maybe a little envious though I'm sure I have a more romanticized vision of living back east than is healthy or realistic in any way.  The Irvines will have to let me know.

And while I'm excited and happy and jealous and cheering for them....I'm also pretty sad. Over the past few years, especially since Troy and Cullen served together in our ward's bishopric, we have grown very close to our friends The Irvines.  Not only was Myca the first person besides myself who could put my baby girl Bundle to bed and thus enabled us to go out on real dates that didn't end at 8:15, but we discovered that we are truly kindred friends and will be forever and ever. So really it shouldn't be a big deal that they moved away for a bit.  But we're gonna miss them.

I always loved how much my girls love Myca - when ever they see her they holler her name and go running into her arms.  It's very sweet.

And all my kids love to hear bedtime stories from Cullen - here he is, reading to the kids at the close of a goodbye dinner we had for them at our house.

That was a sweet post. Thank you! We've been missing you guys too. A lot! Hopefully we'll be able to get together for the holidays or something.

Cute picture of Myca! Sadly, I look pretty granola there. Anyone want to learn how to tie-dye??

We want to move back east too...so i guess I'll have to hope Cullen blogs about it so we can see what it's like!

I think it's so great you guys are great friends! It makes total sense to me, even though we know you from completely different parts of our lives. Gotta love that, huh?
