a goodbye


***

memories are important. 
its nice to be able to reflect on them all

so to this collection I add: last night and today. 

last night's going away party for two. 
 like last year,  because it just feels like the proper way to send someone special off 

***
and this morning, when i said a sad goodbye to my stone as 
he heads to spring training in lovely FL
he will do wonderfully. and be the cutest. 
i am excited for him to get to train with the Phillies big leaguers and proud...

but sad of course.
  because i sure will miss my best friend a lot. like every day. as in i already do
it will be a new adjustment for me. and for him. and for my heart
 boo. 

but like my friend k.clarkson likes to say.... 



so gooodbye & good luck Austin! we are alllll cheering for you

You are so strong - and Kell is SO right - what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. and of course, this gives you a reason to meet me in PA! :) good luck Austin!

Jamie said...

Bummer but good luck to him!

Lauren said...

Aw it's always really hard to say good bye :( But congrats to him!!!

Courtney said...

Well my heart hurts for you but that is so awesome that he gets to do this! Does he play in the Major leagues??

Joey said...

You look at all this in all the right ways. You celebrate it, like you celebrate everything, even though your heart is breaking. I know you'll make it through because you are so strong (and you two are so perfect!) Good luck to Stone (and to you!)

Sara Aisenberg said...

Aw Chelsea, I'm sorry that Stone is already gone. I know it won't help you feel better right this minute, but just know that you're being the best girlfriend ever and supporting him SO much while he goes and fulfills his dream. You guys will get through it and be better because of it! :)

shay said...

awwww, sad but you are 100% right, you will get thru it and be fine! and maybe you can visit him throughout the season?

Valerie Griffin said...

so sweet. i'll say a prayer for you, i know this must be so hard!

Michelle P said...

awww I'm sorry that must be hard!

amy said...

Good luck Austin! I know baseball season is tough. It can be so bitter sweet. It's exciting, but also such a LONNNNNNNNNNNG six month. I am already counting down the days for it to be over so we can go back to having a normal schedule around here! Hugs!

Nicole said...

As they say absense makes the heart grow fonder. Will def be thinking about you sweet girl. I hope the next months fly by quick:)

ashley said...

this makes me so sad! I'm sorry he had to go away-- it'll be an exciting baseball season though. do you head down to FL to visit him during spring training? we used to go every year- so fun.

AM said...

It's definitely not easy but you have an incredibly positive attitude which helps a lot. I'm from Philly, been a fan of the Phillies since I was a kid. It's a great group of guys Stone is going to get to play with this year. I was excited for both of you when I read about his opportunity this season. Good luck!

Ashlee said...

Oddly, I have had that song of Kelly's stuck in my head all morning before I even read your blog. Crazy!!
But it is so true, the things that you believe will kill you only make you stronger and stronger.

Time will fly by and you'll have Stone in your arms once again. It's such a proud feeling to have knowing he is out there living his dream and working hard and then he gets to come home to you, eventually, and share all the fun stories and memories with you that he has made. And until then, you get to hold on to the memories you've made with him while he has been home!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE!

The day of the goodbye and the day after the goodbye is ALWAYS the hardest for me. Ms. Clarkson says it best though! :) I hope Stone does amazing during the training! I love the signs and balloons you made for him. So sweet!
