As many of you may know, UTMB's graduation was yesterday. It was an exciting day for many of our med-school buddies as they began a new journey as physicians but also a little bittersweet for many of us who will be sad to see them leave our Island - that so many of them have too come to love.
Yesterday was also Michael's birthday. We've always celebrated his birthday with friends and yesterday was no exception. Our good friend Neisha (one of those brand new physicians mentioned above) is Portland-bound today and, true to Neisha form, wanted to leave Galveston with a bang, and in her case, that's means a dance party - plain and simple. What better place to celebrate the time we've shared with our UTMB friends than the new shop and soon-to-be future home of Nautical Antiques & Decor? (And also ensure a nice healthy dose of "good juju" for our new beginning in a new spot at 2202 Mechanic!)
Jason Newby, the white-browed gentleman shown above, and his bride Andi are also a few days away from a new beginning. In a week, they'll be moving to Maine where Newby's next stint in the USCG will be - burr - looks like we'll be visiting in August, eh?
So, cheers to everyone - it's not the end of anything - it's just the beginning.
