Today is the day!

Well, the thought of going over to Africa for six months wasn’t so scary until a plane ticket, two suitcases, and numerous goodbyes became the reality.  I am so excited for what awaits me and I know it will be an experience that will greatly change who I am.  Although this will probably be the best six months of my life, it has been extremely hard saying goodbye to my family, friends, and the life that I have become so comfortable with.  With that being said, I am ready to take on new challenges, see the world, and make memories that I will treasure for the rest of my life.

I had a wonderful final day here in America, spent with family and special friends.  However, there are only 15 hours and counting until my journey officially begins and so much left to do (including a bit more packing…)!!  I will miss you all but I will be back in America soon 🙂

Love love love and so so excited!
