Disclaimer: Writing this before my birthday
Today is my BIRTHDAY!!!!
I am thrilled because I am all about birthday week.
Hopefully, we can do a beach day today. That is my ideal way to celebrate my birthday, so thankful I was born in August so I get beach days on my birthday.
This year, however, I don't get a birthday week.
I get birthday WEEKS.
Exactly seven days from today, I am hopping on a plane and headed out to meet this family.
Michael, Becca, Steve and Jack.
I just broke into a HUGE grin writing that.
Also, I have goosebumps. I am all cold and jittery and hot and sure my neck is blotchy red because I am THAT excited.
In my senior year in high school, I hopped on a plane with my parents and brother and we flew to Hawaii. Yes, Hawaii. My uncle was stationed there so we spent some time with my aunt and family. It is one of my happiest family memories.
I have never gotten on an airplane again.
So, for my birthday this year, I have told my husband not to get me a single thing. Because he told me to go to Arizona. Told me to go! Because he loves me so!
Whenever I go away on any sort of vacation or day trip, I always keep it as mum as I can. I wait until I get home and say, "Surprise! I went away! Here are the highlights!"
Not this time.
This time I am going to share as much as I want in the moments I experience it.
I think Becca will too.
So you better be following her blog.
In seven days I am going to get on a plane.
Scares me to death.
Baby steps, baby steps...
And then I get to spend FIVE days with Becca.
There are NO words to how excited I am. How thrilled I am. How annoying I have been squealing around my house and to anyone who will listen to me.
Can. Not. Wait.
