For the past 5 months (more than half my life) my parents and I have been living in Tampa. It’s been a long, fun journey but it’s time for?us to move back up to New York. I’ve met so many great people. Especially my dad’s coworkers. They’re so?nice that they threw us a big going away party at a beautiful beachside hotel in Clearwater. We sat by the pool, had dinner on the beach and even watched the sunset. I got to hang out with my friends Allison and Jack while my Dad was in meetings most of the day about how much they were going to miss us.
I can’t say that I’m not happy to be going back up to New York. I love that I’ll be able to see my family so often and the city is very cool. But a lot has happened down here. I mean, I started crawling right here in my living room. I said “mama” for the first time on the bed in my bedroom. But I guess you can’t live in the past. I have a good 120 years ahead of me. So I say, New York here I come. To all my friends in Tampa, I hope to see you all again someday. I’ll remember you always (or at least for the next five minutes).
