This is absolutely an incredible opportunity for him. Can you imagine! He spent the last two years studying in DC so this is going to be a huge change. Because he is going on a student visa, he will be limited to how many times he can come home over the next several years. He will be so missed! His niece and nephews especially will miss his surprise visits. I guess we'll just have to facetime our way through his adventure!
And for all of you lucky ducks with Nordstrom cards (because that's like magic money, right) your early access to the anniversary sale has started. I am so tempted to sign up just for the magic sales but I know Matthew reads this and will be texting me any minute to say NO. I've already started taking advantage of the online shopping trick where you can pick-up your item an hour later. Genius.
