Amidst all of the craziness going on right now, this came in the mail. It was such a bright light on a stressful couple of days. It still doesn’t feel totally real that I’ll be in France this time next month, even after getting the official documents here in the mail but I’m getting more excited by the day.
I’m keeping the faith I’ll be feeling ok, at least enough to enjoy the trip (which I think would be pretty damn hard not to) and trying to meditate away any of the travel stress/anxiety I so often get before going on a trip. I haven’t learned as much French as I wanted to (though I was happily surprised with how much I remembered in the process) and lord knows that always makes me anxious but I’m hoping with a little French wine, I won’t be worrying too much about it 🙂 If there’s anything I learned from my last trip, it’s that I can’t be afraid. I have to just let go and enjoy every moment.
Even better, I’m so excited to travel abroad with both of my parents and to show my dad a place mom and I had so many great memories in so many years ago.
This is where I would like to say something in French to close out the post but as will probably happen when I get over there, my mind is drawing a blank 🙂
