Man, today was hard. I mean, today wasn't hard, really, tonight was. Today was great. But, as soon as the sun went down, your departure loomed.
Like I said earlier, things are much harder to face in reality than in theory.
But, I had made a promise to myself that I wouldn't be a sad sap on the days leading up to your flight. I wanted to enjoy my time with you. I think I did pretty well! I'm still trying my best to stay positive. It'd be super easy to melt into a puddle of sad. But, that's not going to make this time go any faster. Instead, I'm just going to try to stay as connected to you as possible and look forward to the good things coming. I can't wait to see you this summer.
I'm going to keep this short, since I sent a letter with you through the gate. I just wanted to get us started and chat at you. I know you may not have time to write back for a week or so (you won't even be done travelling until Tuesday!). But, I'll be here when you have time.
I love you! Talk to you soon.
P.S. I wanted to upload some of the pictures I took today with my iPod, but they're uploading sideways (in landscape). I don't know why, since I took them in portrait. Google says it's an Apple thing, but I couldn't figure out how to fix it. Since you don't have your good camera (I'll send it to you as soon as I can afford to send you a package!), I wanted to give you a heads up before you try yo load images on here. I'll keep trying to fix it and I'll just text you the pictures in the meantime.
More than bunnies.
