My heart is a little heavy right now as it always is when goodbyes are involved. I figured I'd be a pro at this with as many times as I've had to bid farewell to people, but it never gets easier. Today I said goodbye to my dear friend, Joanne. I met Joanne 6 years ago at ACB and we, along with our other "BFFs" Anne & Vanessa, hit it off right away. Joanne will be heading to China for 6 months to teach English and then, most likely, will head back to England. While I know she will only be an EasyJet flight away, I'm still sad that she's not a tram ride from Starbucks.
Here's a pic of Vanessa, Jo, and me today before we said goodbye:
