What an amazing weekend! We spent another weekend down in Cape Cod and it was a lot of fun. Andrew and I had 4 sets of couples to his family beach house, and it was such an amazing weekend! One couple brought there 5 month old daughter Lyla. She is the cutest baby in the world. It makes me so excited to have children one day. There such a little blessing! It snowed a bit on Saturday but it was beautiful to walk the beach and see the snow falling into the water. Its so peaceful sometimes to just walk along the ocean beach alone, and look out there and just think…
Japan is soon approaching, its going to be a very difficult time when I leave, because first off I will be leaving my family, and second I will be leaving my significant other, Andrew. I’m telling you all now, long distance is the hardest thing you could ever do. At times it rips couples apart, it allows you to see what you are truly made of. Its going to be a difficult time, but at the end of the day, you have to believe all things in life happen for a reason. I got this amazing opportunity to go over and play with Megan Willis with Toyota, Shokki, and I cannot pass it up. All I know is that Andrew is the kindest, most gentle guy I’ve ever met, he puts everyone first, he loves with ALL he has and for that I respect him more than I have EVER respected a man. I love him, were going to take it one day at a time.
“Love is the emblem of eternity; it confounds all notion of time; effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end.”
I’m sure excited for the playing part to start! … I miss that feeling I get when I pick the ball up in the circle and go through my routine, I miss my teammates, I miss being intense, I miss struggling and finding a way to be better my next opportunity, I miss seeing my teammates succeed, I miss that thrill after a 3-2 bases loaded pitch, where you have so much confidence in yourself you feel like you could throw it with your eyes closed, I miss seeing fans, college ones were amazing and so are the fans that come out and watch the NPF, I miss getting prettied up for games, I miss watching video and looking through stats and sheets of my opponents, I miss that feeling before we take the field on “Championship” day, I miss seeing my family in the crowd supporting me, I miss signing for all those amazing young women that stay 30-40 minutes after every game just to get an autograph, last thing I miss the most is competing, its the best feeling in the world, for all of you out there, if you love the feeling of competing… NEVER LOOSE that. You can’t teach someone to thrive in the hardest situations possible, its gut instinct and how their raised, LOVE the moment you guys, because sooner or later it will be over.
I can’t wait to keep everyone posted on Japan, and this summer! I will update this as often as I can.
