Today I turn in my resignation letter. I would be a liar if I said I was not happy about the prospect and new opportunities both Bea and I are about to face. It is however very sad to leave this city that I have now called home for the past 3 years. Even though Kansas City has become a very cool place because of its shopping and entertainment district, what made this place cool were the friends Bea and I made. Some of whom very quickly became our surrogate family and made sure our emotional well being was more than taken care of.
So before I get into anything else I want to say, THANK YOU, for being there for us and making us feel part of this community, “Gracias MIL!”
I am absolutely terrified to face Spyder, her and Bea are peas in a pod when they start speaking French and get to be Canadian to each other.
I cannot wait to have a game of BSG with Andy before I go, and hopefully leave this town undefeated!
I don’t know how I am going to deal with not being able to see Nuke because his encouragement and positive reinforcement have made me a much happier person.
I hope that Chimpo and Jen take tons of pictures of Loren because I was looking forward to seeing her grow up.
I am sorry that XO is going to have to look for another Pimp, I was not getting him much business anyway.
I am embarrassed that we did not make more time to spend with Michelle and Eric because we always enjoyed their company very much.
I won’t ever have lunch buddies like Lane and Toast, willing to show me their favorite places and not afraid to try new stuff.
I expect Mike and Kerstin making us come back in the future and having to dress up.
I am going to miss being able to say I know talented people like Celeste and her hubby.
I know that Banky and Linda will probably be the first ones we see up there while they visit family.
It rips my heart out that now that I met my BFF and his wife we have to be hours apart.
I better get to meet in person all of you (you know who you are) that I have not had the pleasure to do so already.
I will miss the twitter crowd(@joeypants @socreepy @princessofworld @jeffisageek @msgigglebox @arogersphotos @angelchrys @markvanbaale), and don’t forget that bloggers were here first and simply rock more :p
… but I have to be who I am and think of all the positive this is going to bring.
I get to be back close to my family and Chicago friends.
We get to come back to Kansas City as tourists. We are also going to be sure to have a place big enough for people to come and stay with us.
I know many of the friends we’ve made while living here will be friends for a lifetime.
