Everyone is asking me, "How are you doing?" And I reply that I feel as though I have gone through a break-up that I saw coming and therefore have prepared myself.
The sadness and drama have passed and I have met the reality of the situation with a clear head. Of course, there is a bit of avoidance in really thinking too deeply about what this means. I am sure that on Monday morning I will feel the lack of her presence immensely and my heart will ache a bit.
But knowing that she is embarking on a brilliant stage in her life trumps the sadness and brings me joy.

I will finish the school year alone. I am sure I will be fine but I will certainly miss being part of a fabulous team. And with that, I will end this post. Emotions are springing up to the surface and I'd prefer to heed the advice of Scarlett O'Hara and think about it tomorrow.
Lauren, I love you! You will be missed. xo
