You see, her husband started a program within his company 2'ish years ago. At the end of the 2 years,
About a month'ish ago, Matt was offered his own district (which is a major accomplishment and I am VERY proud of him). But the offer was for Columbus, OHIO! Poo! Of course he took the post and he moved there on April 1. They put their house on the market and thought Nicole would be here wrapping things up until at least June. Well, a HUGE blessing occurred and she was able to sell the house (by owner) and they close in a little over a week.
Yep! My best friend is moving to OHIO in a matter of days. Here is a little history for ya....Nicole and I met through a friend when we were both invited to the inaugural meeting of our book club (4 years ago). Then Nicole and I grew closer through our love of books and movies and then JH. She has been a rock for me through this time and has taught me how to be a passionate friend with unswerving dedication.
Since Nicole is here alone and Matt is in Ohio, Nicole has been overwhelmed with all of her to-do's. So, I decided to throw a Farewell Party to help her say goodbye to her closest friends all at once. It was a bitter sweet moment. I mean, we are all going to miss her dearly, but we are also excited for what this new adventure has in store for her and Matt and we know this isn't a forever goodbye. I'm ready to plan my first visit already and she hasn't even moved yet ;D.
The party was great though and there were only a few teary eyes.
To remember each of us, I had everyone write a note to Nicole that will be put in this shadow box along with pictures of each person. We aren't going to let her forget her Okie friends. (I will post a pic of the final product in a few....it looks really cute.)
You can follow Nicole and Matt at Sizzlin' Savages and hear all about the move and their new life in Ohio.
