Flights, airports, and the wild blue yonder!

I know, I know. A post on Wednesday is super unusual.

But.

Guys. Guys. GUYS!

Guess where I am going?!?!

In  forty days, and approximately 5 1/2 weeks from now, I will be getting on a plane.

And I will be flying.

To. . .

Spokane, Washington!!!!

Ahhhh!!! It's happening at last!!! Can you tell I'm excited??? :D
Barring no major illnesses or catastrophes, I will be leaving on October 3rd to meet a very dear friend, Emily McConnell, and spend ten days with her and her family!

When we took a trip up to Washington and Oregon last year as a family, I had been planning to meet her, but God decided it wasn't the right time.

And so the matter was laid to rest.

Then earlier this year I started tossing around the idea of going up to visit. I prayed about it, talked to Emily about it, and we were tentatively planning that I would come up in October. But there were still so many things that needed to work out.

Well, a few months, a summer job and a phone call between our dads later, and . . . I bought the tickets yesterday. Okay, technically it was wayyyy too early this morning, but who cares about technicalities?

And I'm going to Washington to meet her!!!!! :D

Pretty sure this will be me . . .

So yes. I'm sure y'all will be hearing a lot more about it in the coming weeks. ;)

God has been so, SO good, and I can't wait to see how everything turns out! For now I will simply say good-bye and go and dance around the house. I can act a little crazy, right? After all, what else is excitement for? ;)
See y'all Friday!

  10. Plane rides are great (as long as they aren't 10 hour) and are made even better when a friend is at the end. So happy for you!
