Oh, wow, Karen! This is just fabulous--the journaling, the design. Love all the details that are just so perfect here!
Love that subtle arrow, and the in-depth journaling. Bumpy ride; bumpy background paper--nice touch.

What a poignant LO. I for one know that my family will miss Sarah too while she's gone at college. It was wonderful getting to know her, at least a bit, this summer. I can only imagine the challenges that await me when my daughter grows up and heads off to college. I sure remember the excitement of having an apartment of my own. I really love how you set up the title and the stop and go signs. Great idea to include the photo of that U-Haul too.
Sometimes when I'm having a long day, I fantasize about what it will be like when they're all off to college and my house is quiet again. I guess it's one of those "grass is always greener" situations, huh? Your words really put things into perspective. Sounds like you're both pretty lucky to have one another.<img border='0' src='/graphics/mbicons/smilies_v2/grin.gif'>

Journaling: The truck is going both ways - there and back. But she isn't, not for a while. She's back off to college for her Sophomore year. This time she is setting up her own apartment with a roommate instead of staying in the dorms. There will be new challenges and new learning experiences along with a whole lot of fun. <p><p>
We've had a rough summer, figuring out boundaries, letting go, being grown up, being set in our ways, fighting independence, and seeing things from different perspectives. We've had some arguments. But at the end of the day, we come together as mother and daughter, friends, companions and advice seekers and givers. <p><p>
Once again, it is bittersweet; sadness and joy intermingled. Crossing over in my mind. Joy one minute, sadness the next. Happy to see that next adventure looming in her life, full of hopes and dreams. Sad, letting go, taking a piece of my heart into unknown territory.
