Here, Loving Each Other and Fearless Join me as I dig my toes in deep into this big, beautiful world.

And She's Off!

The day has finally come! At 4:35pm, I take off from Phildadelphia International Airport and head west, young woman. Approximately two days later (thanks to the international date line) I'll land in Melbourne. If my New Zealand Air flight is anything like the Qantas one I took to Oz two years ago, I'll spend the seventeen-or-so hour flight watching movies pretty much non-stop, with hot chocolate and other goodies at my disposal. (And, I didn't find this out until it was too late, but you can also get unlimited non non-alcoholic drinks!) They gotta keep you happy afterall; nobody likes a grumpy passenger.

How do I feel?  Well the last week has been a rollercoaster of emotions... saying goodbye to the people I love the most, making those last-minute phone calls and trips to see friends (or having them visit me... thanks Madi!).  At this point, I'm just plain ready to go! 

Well, I have to finish packing first.
Here's my final (clothing) packing list:

~ two t-shirts
~ three long-sleeved shirts
~ jeans, skirt, shorts (one each)
~ one pair of pajamas
~ sweatshirt
~ bathing suit
~ underwear (5), socks (3)
~ beach cover-up
~ sneakers, birks, waterproof sandals
~ rain jacket
~ hat, gloves

...am I missing anything?

more soon!
