A letter to a friend

Dear Sioux City,

Hello. This has been a long time coming and we always knew that it would happen someday. Our relationship started off a bit rough, driving down in an icy storm, a broken toe, and a 10 inch snow storm all within the firat few days. At that point I never would have imagined that when I wrote you this goodbye letter, that there would be tears in my eyes and a crack in my heart.

You've been here for us for so many moments in our lives in such a short time that it is a bit hard to believe I haven't loved you forever.

Over the last three and a half years you have watched as we've made new forever friends, started new jobs, bought our first house, conquered our infertility journey with a successful IVF baby boy, bought a 'family friendly' car, and found out our lives would change once more. I have to admit, I never dreamed I would be sad to leave you and all the love you've given us.

Be good to those we leave behind and to yourself old gal. It's been fun. We'll never forget you!

Love, The Wellers
