The day before we leave

This was me staying up way too late the night before we left for France playing with photo booth and emailing my very good friend Jennifer

(written on May 29th, 2012)

We leave tomorrow.  We leave tomorrow?  We leave tomorrow!

Tomorrow will be a day of flying and layovers, stale cabin air and airport food.  I can’t think of anything more exciting.  To touch down in another country, another culture, another language and bathe in a new reality.  The chickens are fed, the passports and train tickets are packed, the lawn is freshly mowed, the compost bucket is empty.  Umbrella, check.  Extra shoes, check.  Ear plugs, check.  Euros, check.  Cameras, check, check.

My heart is beating a little faster just thinking about how we’ll soon be in Paris, walking around with our little pop out map trying to find our way around the city, backpacks and sleeping bags slung on our backs.
