I've Made It

Just wanted to let you know that I'm in paris now...I arrived a week ago and things have been non-stop ever since. Not exactly sure what I'm feeling write now---I'm just a rollercoaster of emotions at the moment, hoping I've made the right decision.

Anyway, I have no internet connection at the house. Somehow, when they told me they were moving into a new home they forgot to tell me that they are REMODELING. So things are really a mess---we have no tv, no computer, no telephone--nothing! But hopefully things will get finished fairly quickly. In the meantime, I've made McDonald's my home-away-from-home... completely loving it's free internet connection!

Anyway, I have to run, but just wanted to let you know I've made it. And hopefully I'll be able to get back to blogging before too long.

All my best!

You say Goodbye, and I say Hello

That's pretty much what it's been like these last few weeks: goodbye, after goodbye, after goodbye.

But I'm doing alright, surprisingly.

I left Arizona on an early Tuesday morning with my air conditioning on high and my home made cd's blaring in the background. With thousands of miles of open road before me and 23 years of memories behind me, I was off.

As I drove out of town a slight smile began to creep along my face.

"Wow," I thought to myself, "I'm doing this. I'm really, really doing this."

In just a few short weeks, the goodbyes will all be over and it will finally be time to say hello.

Hello to Paris. Hello to adventure. Hello to my new life.
