These are the days of our lives.....

And so it's done. The young man who captured my daughters heart, truly, for the first time is gone. He left this morning with his family to move back to the states. I can't begin to tell you how tragic it all was. They went last night to get pictures made so that they could always remember each other. This morning he came and got her so she could see him off in his cab. He held her, kissed her gently and then was gone. She came back in the house, got in bed with me and I held her. Boo-Bear woke up (never one to miss drama that one!) and got in bed too. The three Owens women, together, giving comfort.
I swear I'm gonna write a book one of these days!
Anyway, her IPod is loaded with sad love songs, I am picking up chocolate for her tomorrow and she has her friends today to help her through. I told her to cherish this memory. It will be a sweet one that she can take out later and smile about. Not to much smiling going on at the moment. If the love of my life is reading this and having a coniption seeing his baby holding the hand of another guy...weellllllllllllll what can I say?? :) This is what happens when you sign up to take a class halfway around the world and leave me to run over little Ajimahs and deal with the growing pains of two teens ALONE!!!!! Ahem, I am sorry to the masses who had to read that last bit. I am not bitter...nope....NOT ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I swear that man of mine better come home with jewelry!
night everyone!
:) heehee

How is the accident issue? Over or is it looming over your head, casting a dark shadow?

What a cute couple! They will have wonderful memories of their time together. Be sure to post pictures of your gems when the Captain gets home~

Jewelry, 10 yards of fabric, something nice to sleep in-or to at least wear! (you will be looking so fine!)
Those two just look gorgeous together, remember those days...a little piece of me misses that and the big piece channels Princess leia, oops, Carrie fisher in 'When Harry met sally" and screams "tell me i never have to be out there again!" (I think that's about the quote! Tracey

Awwww. Those first loves hurt so much when they end.

Hope your hubby brings back BIG jewelery. He is going to be scared to open the door. :)

Thats a great photo! Unfortunately, after some time, she'll have it tucked away behind the photo of her next love and ultimately after a short string of "oh he's cute's" might even find herself exacto-knifing his head outta the picture... Oh wait, who were we talking about?? Right, for now, its a lovely picture and I hope the ice cream at BFF's helps her. ~jen~
