Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Well, this is it! Today was our last day at our house!! I can't believe that tomorrow we hit the road toward the start of the next chapter in our lives!
My siblings and I took one last picture together in the backyard, and on the huge swing set that my parents bought for my preschool graduation, which we're leaving behind.
The house looked so empty as we finished packing, and I went around to each room to say one last good-bye to the memories that I've had for the past twenty-one years there.
Tonight, three of my best friends surprised me with a night out to celebrate my last night in New York. It was so nice to go out and talk, and to be able to enjoy the night with them before I leave. I'll definitely miss all of my friends, but I'm so glad that technology will allow me to keep in touch with them so easily.
When we came home from our night out, my best friend and I drove by my house one more time. We looked in through the windows to see how empty and sad it looked. I had a moment to cry, and say good-bye on my own. I can't believe that this was the last day that I'll ever be in my house.
I'm looking forward to our new adventure, and I really do think that as sad as it is to say good-bye, our new life in Florida is going to be well-worth the heartache and pain (physical and emotional... moving is hard!) once we're settled into our new home. Wish us luck!
I only have a little over two more weeks to reach my goal of 150 likes on my Facebook author page by the time I'm celebrating a year of blogging on July 29th. I still need 42 people to hit that "like" button and I would be really grateful to everyone if you could like and share my page. It's as simple as clicking the two buttons at the top right of any blog page, so it only takes a few seconds of your time! As I've mentioned before, when I reach 150 likes, I will share information about the novel that I've been working on, so I'm really excited to hit that milestone!
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
