One More Sleep!

My bags are all packed. Technically they have been packed, then unpacked, then repacked a few times. But I think I have it all good now. I have ran through my list of things and I am pretty sure I have everything done and ready for my next big adventure. 


I am starting to get nervous now. I always get nervous before I go on a big trip. I don't have much in the way of expectations, I am going on this adventure open to endless possibilities. I want to feel happy. I want to have fun, to try new things and meet loads of new people. I want to eat, and laugh till I cry. I want to have such am amazing time my face hurts from smiling. (No expectations).


I reviewed my bucket list (the London/Italy portion) looks good. Fingers crossed


Go to London England
-Eat at Jamie Olivers  restaurant (his fish pie)
-Meet Mr. Oliver because he happens to be there, he takes me on a tour of his kitchen and I get a picture with him
-Get a picture taken with a Queen's guard
-Go to a castle
Go to Italy
-Dance with a complete stranger (also make out with said stranger.. kidding... kinda)



Things I want to eat:
-Pub food in a pub in London
-Seafood linguine with real octopus
-Eat real mozzarella cheese



I look forward to sharing my adventures with everyone.  I hope you all come along for the ride!


Wish me luck!

Today:


I am grateful Drew is taking time off work to be with the kids while I go. thank you. 


I am grateful for the pursuit of inner peace. 


I am grateful for this opportunity. This calendar year has been a hug one for me. I have experienced things that most people get over the span of a life time. I am a very lucky girl.
