Going-away gathering

We just had our going-away party on Friday, it was a lot of fun! I think there were about 70 - 80 people here throughout the night, the house was packed. It was so great to see everyone, some of them drove a long ways to get here for the party. Thanks to everyone who made it here, it meant a lot to us, we were glad to be able to see so many people before we leave!

Here's a few quotes about goodbyes/traveling/inspiration I found online that seemed fitting:

Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance; they make the latitudes and longitudes. ~Henry David Thoreau

Be the change you wish to see in the world. - Gandhi

Only in the agony of parting do we look into the depths of love. ~George Eliot

Man's feelings are always purest and most glowing in the hour of meeting and of farewell. ~Jean Paul Richter

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail - Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Not all those who wander are lost.” - J. R. R. Tolkien

“The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” - G. K. Chesterton

Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile. - Albert Einstein
