on lasts.

via here.
today will be the last time i catch the train out of the city to visit my boyfriend.
the last time i rush to the subway after work, my duffel bag bouncing off my side.
the last time i watch the miles dwindle as i take in the hudson river.
the last time we'll walk to get breakfast at his corner deli.
the last time i'll kick myself for leaving my hairbrush behind. again. (well, maybe the last for this destination).
the last time i'll rush to pack my bag in his bedroom.
the last time we'll say goodbye for the week on a sunday afternoon.
we always seem to get so dreamy about firsts in life. this weekend, i'm celebrating the lasts instead.

  1. so happy for your Colleen! This is truly a last to celebrate :) I remember being so thankful when Caleb and I were finally done saying goodbye every Sunday night (I called them the Sunday night blues). It is such a good feeling to know you don't have to wait five days to be together again!

  2. Yeah! These are good lasts. Enjoy the crazy moving weekend, and the promise of what's to come. Also... I'm going to be in NYC this weekend! I meant to tell you earlier, and then this week was crazy and over really quickly. I know you'll be super busy, but I'd you want to try to meet up, send me an email!

  4. I love that you're celebrating the lasts. Yes, being long distance is hard, but think of all the fun memories you made going up to visit him. And those awesome pictures of the Hudson from the train! I'm sure there are some things you won't miss too - like being apart all week. I'm so excited for you and Brian! Hope the move goes well :)

  5. Yay for lasts AND firsts! So glad to see you are savoring the memories of that former phase while optimistically looking forward to the next. Some wonderful things probably came out of your long distance time, so I love that you aren't writing it off as a waste. Best of luck with all the fun new happenings. It's going to be awesome!
