We chartered a bus to take 25 people to the horse races on Sunday. It was so much fancy! Nearly everyone got dressed up in dapper clothes suitable for horse races of a year long past. With our feathery fascinators and hats --even a lace parasol!-- we bet on some ponies. What a riot.
At the end of the night, all the emotion started to hit me. I LOVE being with these people. We host so many parties at our place and I love taking care of everyone. It's going to be hard to be away.
The trade off is getting to see the world, pushing our boundaries and our knowledge, living simply, and living together. I think that's worth it. But I've been warned by our bests friends that we aren't allowed to stay any longer than a year. ;-)
