You are loved

As I started to say goodbye to my friends and family today, I couldn’t hold back tears. I often cry, so this wasn’t entirely surprising, but in that moment I was so overwhelmed by how lucky I am and I didn’t want the weekend to end. I’m extremely grateful people traveled from all over the country to celebrate with me, and those who couldn’t be there reached out to wish me well. This weekend was a really special one, but also the latest in a series of incredible memories I have with these beautiful, brilliant individuals. I never want to take for granted how fortunate I am and what a privilege it is to feel this love.
