Goodbye Virginia Beach. Hello World!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Well. We’ve officially done it. This morning we packed up and left Virginia Beach. It was bittersweet in some respects. We left behind a lot of people we care very deeply about, but at the same time, we don’t want to miss one moment of our lives. This week has been so incredibly busy, just downright hectic, moving Emma out and Danae’s family in to their new home. Closing up our house as best and fast as we could. Trying to be sure Emma had all that she needed to get her started. All of that on top of saying “see you in a bit” to family, friends and friends who might as well be blood related.

John had a Retirement party thrown for him almost every day this week.

Saying goodbye isn’t always a party

He will obviously be missed at Sentara, and he left Friday feeling very appreciated. I left Williams quietly Thursday. I will never forget the good times and good people I met there. It was the best of times, and I was privileged to work with such talented and dedicated people.


We also had our goodbyes at our favorite Mexican place, Las Palmas.

Afterward we went and played mini golf at Lynnhaven Golf Park. The place was PACKED! We had SO much fun! it was a great evening. Thank you to Henry, Lisa, Bean and Eli, Danae, Chip, AJ and Josie, Raymond and Emma for making it such a memorable night.

The Best People

Saturday was an early day filled with lots of moving, and all the chores that comes with it. It was tackled with excitement and goodwill as we had Ken’s Annual 4th of July party to look forward to. That is always a good time, with lots of  karaoke, food, his wonderful pool, and awesome friends!

His first prize moneyAndrew won the Dance off for guys with his sweet moves, Emma won the dance off for girls with her classic Running Man/Bernie. 19554223_10159213910460227_5146922970638195664_nIt was wonderful way to cap off our time in Virginia Beach. Besides, Ken’s parties are ALWAYS epic

This morning, we packed up our bikes, put the car on the dolly and started heading north to see John’s brother, Joe and family.
