After finding out that we were heading to Japan, we were also told to expect to leave sometime in the beginning of December. Not knowing how much time we actually had, we decided it was probably best to have a going away party so we could see friends and family all at once to say some goodbyes.
My mom and sisters took the lead and booked a private room at the Players Retreat in downtown Raleigh on Saturday, November 22. We had the best time being surrounded by the ones we loved even though I fought back tears the entire night.
Thank you to everyone who came and made our night so special. Seeing how many people support and love us was so overwhelming and makes it that much harder to leave! We love you all.
