That's right...and totally by choice. It feels a little crazy. If I allow myself to sit for any time at all and really THINK about what we're doing...I get freaked out. I've woken up the last few mornings with my mind racing. We are really doing this!! We quit our jobs!! We have packed up all our stuff and we are GOING!! Out into the world.
Friday was my last day of work. I'm doing better just sort of not acknowledging all this. Sad goodbyes are no fun. I keep looking forward instead of back. Preston and I are so very lucky to have this opportunity and I don't want to squander a moment of it by living in the past.
I shipped my car yesterday to Maryland. It will be better looked after by my family. It was pretty crazy giving a complete stranger the keys to my car and waving farewell. :)
We packed up our apartment and moved most things on Thursday. Today we lose the couch and the bed and we'll be like squatters in here on an air mattress with only a few necessities.
I'm trying to mentally prepare myself for the 12 hour flight that's ahead of us tomorrow :P Then we will be in glorious Fiji!! I don't even know what to expect. I guess a whirlwind? I hope I remember to slow down and take it all in.
I had a great night out last night with my girlfriends. We hit up Cowboy Country...an old favorite of ours. It was a great time and it really meant a lot to me that so many of them took the time to say goodbye. I know many of these friendships will last a lifetime.
I feel like it's so rare anymore that people take real adventures. Not too many wagon trains heading west these days ;) You have to make your own adventures and we are off on an adventure of a life time!!
