Goodbye My Friends in CT and THANK YOU!!!

We have lived in Connecticut for 9 years.
 This beautiful place has been “home” to our twin boys.
I believe life leads you places for a reason.  This was a place for us to meet some of the best friends we’ve ever had….friendships to treasure for life.
I have to share with you a video of our going away party that my friends put together for me and my family. I am forever thankful for these people who have embraced us and made our family feel right at home here in Connecticut.

I couldn't resist clicking on this post because we are getting close to moving too. And it helps to know that even though it's hard to say goodbye, happy times are ahead. I love the photos of the boys together. They are so cute all dressed up and with the little bird. Aw.

trendy style

looking great party

Oh my gosh that brought tears to my eyes! What wonderful friends you made Holly! I hope that you are settling into your new home in Virginia. Some reason I thought you were headed to Ohio. Ive been so busy so I am sure I missed something.

Hi, Holly! Long time, no see! Hope everything is going good with your move. Can't wait to see how you decorate your new place! God bless!


The video was AWESOME!


Congrats on your new journey of life!!~ We lived in S. Florida for 9 years and my boys made the best of friendships as did we. We still keep in touch, visit and have the best of times together. We have now been in the Carolina's for 6 years and I can't imagine any other place being home for us. You will get that too soon enough. Can't wait to see your new place!

What a beautiful video from some very special friends. I wish I had those special friends, especially is such dark time with my own family. We (husband and I) are looking at a possible out of state move, just waiting to hear the words. It will be hard, but yet at the same time it is something we've looked forward to for a very long time.I had tears in my eyes watching the video and reading all of the wonderful comments. I'm sure you and your wonderful family will meet some very special new friends once you get settled. Your… Read more »

I know your move must be creating a wave of emotions, Holly! We women DO have a tendency to connect our hearts to others rather easily and lay down roots in our environments. But, I'm sure many other new friends await you in you next location. ;)Be sure to stop by and take a peek at my \”French-inpired\” giveaway. There are only three more days to enter.Blessings,Liz @ The Brambleberry Cottage

Good friends are such a blessing. I have not been the one to move away, but have had several very close friends move. It breaks my heart a little each time. Thankfully, God always has someone ready to fill that void..not to replace them…but just fill the hole in my heart.Blessings to y'all as you move.

The video was great! What nice friends. Luckily our hearts are big enough to open up and welcome new friends into our lives. Good luck with the move and have fun making new friends and new memories!
