Goodbye! (for now)

We’re sitting in our gate for our flight to Turkey, then Tanzania. Just finished our last meal in The States for a while, Wawa hoagies. Oooh yeah! This whole situation is so surreal; I can’t even explain it. As I was driving up to the airport (3 hours from Southern Jersey to JFK), I was struck by how normal all of this seemed. I mean, maybe not normal-normal, but a new normal. I wasn’t freaked out at all today. For the most part I felt calm and relaxed. Everything just seemed to fall into place. It definitely stung to say goodbye to my mom and step-dad, but other than that, I am just amazed at how we’re just doing this. One foot in front of the other.

So, I guess this is it.

Thanks to everyone who have made these last few days, weeks, and months so wonderful! There is so much I am going to miss, but most of all I will miss you.

I look forward to updating the blog again when we’re at our destination. Say some prayers and send thoughts our way for a safe and uneventful journey tonight and tomorrow!

At the airport, ready to go!
