Saying Goodbye

A couple weekends ago, we said goodbye to my sister and brother in law as they packed up all of their belongings and headed for South Carolina.  Brad completed his education and will now start practicing dentistry in South Carolina and Alicia will continue teaching, at a new school, while finishing her final year towards a graduate degree.  

They're renting a beautiful brick home in downtown Greenville, a community that serves their interests {biking, hiking, kayaking, camping, etc.} perfectly.  I am so anxious to go visit them!  But while we're all excited to see their dreams come true, it's also bittersweet as they're the first to 'leave the nest' if you will.  I completely underestimated how difficult it is to tell your baby sister goodbye.   I know she'll love it and it's the best move for her and Brad, but she's also the most sentimental person in our family, so I know this is incredibly hard on her.  As soon as I got home, I hoped on Etsy in search of the perfect gift for her.  Something that would remind her of home just when she needs it most. I came across Salvaged Studio's personalized heart maps and knew this was exactly what I wanted!  Our hometown is on the left and her new home is on the fun!  I chose the 'close together or far apart, my family is always in my heart' quote, but you can pick whatever you want!

The best part is that Rachael is offering a discount when you use promo code 'MMAMA10' you'll receive 10% off any order from her Etsy site from now through August 31st.


  1. Salvaged Studio has some really wonderful stuff - the owner has a great eye for the unusual and heartfelt. I've not seen that heart before, but then so much of her work is personalized and special. Good things.

  2. Love the print!! Such a sweet idea and one I'm sure she will cherish!!
