I’m close to tears right now.

Maybe it was a bad idea to do this in The Kookaburra. Crying in public is kind of frowned upon, right? The sappy coffee shop music isn’t helping.

Oh great. Coldplay just came on.

I’ve resisted looking back at all these pictures since we left Los Angeles in 2011. I had come to terms with the fact that moving back home was the best decision for Amy and me; if we were to eventually have a family, Los Angeles wasn’t the place to do it.

Just because It was the rational decision, doesn’t mean it made it any easier to leave.

When we moved to Los Angeles in 2009, I had no clue what I’d end up doing for work.

Little did I know, I would end up with the best Production Assistant job in all of Hollywood. I quickly learned that it wasn’t the job that was special, it was the people around the job that made it one of the best experiences of my life.

Today is the last official day of shooting for Glee, which is why I’m sitting here looking at all these photos … reminiscing.

I love my Glee family so much. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about you all.

I feel SO lucky and blessed to have been able to get to know each and every one of you.

I haven’t been able to watch an episode of the show since I left after Season 2; I knew that it would bring back too many incredible memories that I wouldn’t be able to deal with emotionally.

You better believe I’ll be watching Glee’s final episode on March 20.

Gigantic box of tissues by my side.
