Saying goodbye, a bit early

Our big closing luncheon was yesterday. Poor Becca got pretty stressed out about it, but it all went quite well! It's just sort of strange to think that a) we're 9/10 weeks done, and b) we still have a week left, even after our closing luncheon.
Our skits and such went over pretty well, and they found our sarcastic humor at least amusing. Joe dressed up as Rowan, and Becca presented Ann with flowers and Rowan with a watermelon.
Recently, I've realized how much of a support network I have, both here in Louisville as well as more generally. (Thanks to all of you-- it helps a lot more than you might suspect.) And between the closing luncheon and the sudden need for (and now, reflection on) my support network, I really appreciate how many people were willing to step up for me personally, professionally, and socially. Everyone in the Bulldogs world puts so much effort into making us feel at home here, and giving us meaningful (well, sometimes) work. And for all of you who sent me encouraging messages when I needed them, please know that I really appreciate them. I thank my lucky stars that I have such good friends, family, mentors, etc.

What's this support you speak of? I never gave you any kind words of encouragement. I don't want to hear about it.

And you stop it, JJJ, with those support colons. Seriously, colons? ew.
