Miami. Don't leave me yet.

I'm sorry, it's been forever. There are no excuses. Except I'm going to make some.
I'm busy. I work, I babysit, I sometimes clean my house.
And my free time hasn't been in front of a computer... it's in front of the TV. duh. jk.

We only have a few weeks left in Miami and we have been trying to take it all in. 
I can't say goodbye to this place. Every time I think about leaving here I get emotional and start to tear up. Being here for 6 months we have made this place our home. We have friends, a church, I have a job, favorite places to go eat, H&M, my 2 favorite ladies at the post office who know my life story. I don't know how I'm going to say bye to our resident homeless man Chuck. We don't know his name, but that's what we call him.

If you talked to me before we moved here then you know I was scared. I didn't know what to expect and I thought it would be the hardest 6 months yet. I was wrong. God completely changed and opened my heart up to this place and these people. I like that no one speaks English and that Cuban food is more common than anything else. It reminds me that this world that God created is big and I'm from a small part of it.

Ah. That's enough for now. I'm going to cry.
I didn't even mention the beach.. ahh the beach! Noooo!

I'll leave you with pictures from a few weekends ago!

We scored a Groupon to see Tracy Morgan stand up.
 That's Tracy Morgan. The bright white blob on the stage. 
He was hilarious and so inappropriate and wrong.

 All the student doctors at Marshall's work leave at different times so the goodbyes have started.
One of the adult doctors took everyone out to eat for a farewell dinner.
We went to a place called Big Cheese Pizza.... um, yes please!
These 5 girls.
 They are a big part of why I am going to miss this place so much. 
It reminded me of what having girlfriends to hang out with all the time is like!

The hospital Marshall is at is one of the biggest eye hospitals in the country. And the best! They take a lot of students every semester from all over the country so it allows us to meet people from all over!
The 2 girls staring and eating the pizza, from NJ and North Carolina (NC girl went to school with Marshall so we were already friends!)
These 3 girls with me in the picture, all from Canada!

So if you wonder what we have been up to. It's this.
 Enjoying these people and this place for just a little bit longer.

It must be so profoundly refreshing to move to an entirely new place and make new friends and have a new home. I am in such dire need of girlfriends to hang out with that it makes me tear up! Good luck on the move, God has his plan in mind for you.
