take these broken wings and learn to fly…. all your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arrive."
That’s the song that’s been running through my head since yesterday when Clara announced that she got a new job and will be moving to Quincy, Massachussetts in just a few weeks… right before our birthdays.
To make a long story short… last summer Clara met Bill through mutual friends who live near Boston. He’s a nice guy with a decent job and seems to adore her as she does him (I’ve just met him twice). Initially they talked of getting an apartment nearby and him finding a job here. However, she fell in love with the Boston area as well which led to her job search and last night’s annoucement. They have a cute one-bedroom apartment lined up.
I’m torn between being happy and very proud of her and dreading the empty nest. I’ll miss her terribly but, hey…. now I have a great reason to visit Boston.
