goodbye to all that

" i travel not to go anywhere, but to go. i travel for travel's sake. the great affair is to move."

so i leave for nz in a few minutes. patrick was just over, maria, sarah, and mrs. cargo were over earlier and right now, mom, kelsey, alex, and i are at the kitchen table watching the snow. {i hope this means i can still fly out on schedule!}

it is currently 60 in wellington, and i cannot believe that i leave on the 8th and get there on the 10th! i still don't know final plans, but i know it is going to work out.

packing has been a funny/challenging experience. so far, i have enlisted sarah,
maria, brandi, and mom to help squeeze everything inside my backpack!

speaking of backpack, though, i still need to finish packing a few things. . .

i'm really just writing to say thank you. thank you everyone for all the love and encouragement. i couldn't be any more excited/amazed that one of my biggest dreams is coming to fruition!

whatever happens world, this is what i wanted all along.

i don't know what awaits me, but i know this will be one of the greatest challenges/adventures of my life!

with all the love in my heart,
