Everyday Style in Gingham

Happy Monday! Today marks exactly 1 week until I'll be moving to college for my sophomore year. I am so unbelievably excited but I feel like my summer flew by in a minute. I'm definitely ready to head back but I absolutely hate goodbyes. And this upcoming week is intimidating me with a whole lot of them. 
The first goodbye is going to come on Wednesday as I say goodbye to the little kids I babysat for all summer. I can't believe how much I have grown to love them over the course of the summer. I honestly wish I could pack them up and take them to school with me! I've babysat for quite a few families, but no other kids have ever made an imprint on my heart quite like these ones. But I've already promised their mom I'm going to come back and babysit on every break. 

The next goodbye is on Saturday as I say goodbye to my summer job at J.Crew Factory. I absolutely loved my job and will be sad to say goodbye. I know I'm transferring, but I'll definitely miss the atmosphere and the people at my store. They were a part of so much of my summer. And even though I'll probably come back and work at some point, I know some of my favorite people will probably move on with different chapters of their lives by then. 

My sister isn't coming to move-in this year as it is on a Monday and she has school, so it will be a tough goodbye to her on Sunday morning. But I am trying to look at is as more of just a see you later until my family is up for a visit. As much as my sister and I bicker we really are so close and I have absolutely loved being able to talk with her every day at home this summer and will definitely miss that up at school.

I guess because my summer was so long, I've been home since May 4. It really feels like a good part of my life. I've managed to make memories, get in routines, and adapt to a life at home. But now I'm about to be headed to my favorite place in the world, where I get to see some of my favorite people and know that a lot of sad goodbyes only lead to some happy hellos very soon.
