Sunny Days and Transatlantic Tears

AKA, A Tribute to Miss Saab...

May 2010 was the month that my dear friend/flatmate/voice of logic Yara left Edinburgh to move to New York. After two gruelling years in Edinburgh Law School, she was finally free to take on the job of a lifetime: Legal Advisor for the Lebanese Delegation on the UN Security Council. That's right. The United Nations Security Council. That, my dear friends and family is an impressive 25 year old! I have no doubt that if anyone can be the change they want to see in the world, it's her!

Yara is a fabulous person, one of those once-in-a-lifetime friends. I am so lucky to have her, and I'm so glad she came into my life! Being Lebanese raised in Cyprus, Yara, like myself, has a predisposition to sun-worshipping, and a severe dislike for the cold, wet, nasty aspects of life in Scotland. Luckily for us, the last day before her big move happened to be one of the most glorious days of summer! (yes, let's not talk about the fact that we had our summer over and done with by the end of May...sad day!)

The last day...Sunny and warm and the perfect send-off!

At the airport...there are tears in this picture!

I miss this girl like whoa! But I'm so glad that she is doing such amazing things! Overall, I have to thank Edinburgh Law School, the Mediterranean Gastronomic Society, and a questionable Lebanese friend in common for bringing her into my life!

Edinburgh Law School...the Beast!

So let's raise a proverbial glass to my dear friend, and may she have many sunny days to come!
