Dearest Family and Friends: An Explanation

Sweet Family and Lovely Friends,

That's where I am.
It feels good to be home with you.
But I really miss New York, more than I thought I would be missing it at this point, especially since it is so early in the summer and so early in my transition from "FIT Fashion Girl" to "Undecided/Floater Girl".
I really shouldn't be surprised since New York was home for the past year, but I am.
I'm definitely not sad to be home, but I get a little teary-eyed when I have to tell people that I will be here for a while and won't be moving back to NYC for at least a few years.
I grew and grew up so much while living in New York. I learned and experienced things that I couldn't have anywhere else. And I needed to do it in a different place, on my own.

I'm Home.
It's going to take a while to adjust to this new life that I am not used to. While I am in the same town, same home and same room that I spent high school in, it's a new chapter in my life--a new chapter with a new me, and with new yous.
It feels completely different than I remembered and expected.
It's going to be a toughie and will take a lot of patience on your part, but thank goodness I know you love me enough to give me time while I figure things out.

I hope this gives you an explanation to why I may seem different than you remembered, and why it's taken me longer than I thought it would to adjust back to being home.
While a few things have changed (just so you know) I still love hugs and playing cards!!
Love you all!
