Chloe and Alex, her longtime boyfriend, pulled in at about 4:30 this afternoon, her first year of college behind her. She reported much sadness at saying goodbye to all of her college buddies, knowing she won’t be seeing most of them again until she’s back at school in August. Ah, now it’s both ways. Sadness at leaving home, sadness at leaving school.
But now it’s happiness both ways, too. 🙂
Chloe requested we go out for a healthy meal of predominantly raw food in celebration of her return so we went to a restaurant called Thrive not far from our house. She also requested that Ella do the driving, which put Chloe and me in the backseat, the place from which I took this photo.
