We went to see the very last Harry Potter at midnight on opening day. Can you see the tagline of the finale? It all ends. We thought it was fitting--today Victoria is driving back to Kansas after two years of living in our house.
These awesome silk screened t-shirts were made to commemorate the big day--they turned out about as well as our first attempt. As I was cutting out the freezer paper I said to Vic, "I wish I could say this is the weirdest thing we've ever done." Weirder things we've done include but are not limited to: fashion blogging, going to BlogHer, taking our dogs to the pool... lots of crafts, lots of blogs designed, and lots and lots of fun.
We ended our time in Virginia the way most evenings go--a trip to Pinkberry, watching an episode of Firefly while playing on our laptops/iPads and staying up a little too late. We've be so lucky to have Vic here, not just because she keeps us stocked with baked goods, offers free babysitting, loves all the exact same things I do or speaks the same special language as me. It's because she's kind of slipped into our home and become part of our family--and it's a little bit hard to let a piece of your family go. Even when they are leaving for grand things.
I'm already sort of a hot mess today--Finley has asked for Tori a few times already and I am not sure how to explain to him that she's not downstairs anymore. But he deserves a mommy who isn't crying all the time, so I'll try to buck up. Kansas girls, take care of her for us. And Vic, you know where to find me. Twitter, Gchat, WWF, Facebook, Pinterest, blog, Facetime, text, phone, email... actually, just WUPHF me if you need me.
