wherever you go

I love this gorgeous Pink Paislee Vintage Moon from Allyscraps! These pictures of Mark and the boys the day he was getting ready to leave for a long business trip were too sweet not to scrap, even if a little bit heartbreaking.

In over 5 years at your job, you had never had to travel out of town. But this first one was a doozie – two weeks on the other side of the county, in Seattle! The boys knew it was coming, but I think until this morning – the day you were to leave – it hadn’t really sunk in. It made me so sad to see them so sad, knowing that it would be half a month before they would get to hug you, wrestle with you, or have you tuck the covers under their chins at bedtime. When you left, it’s like a little piece of their hearts went with you. And, I think, a little piece of your heart stayed right here with them, and helped them get through those long 14 days.
