Goodbye USA, Bonjour France!

This time tomorrow, I will be on a plane on my way to France. I am beyond nervous and just realized that this is really happening. I can not believe I am going to be in France for almost ten weeks and the adventure starts tomorrow. However, I am not looking forward to being up at the crack of dawn to get my day started---there are soooo many things that I need to have done before I get on that plane tomorrow afternoon.

This experience is bittersweet. While talking on the phone to my Aunt, sadness and joy hit me, strange combo I know--I am so excited to meet new people and see new things and experience a life that is completely different that that of my life in the states. But is here is the BUT... I am going to miss everyone close and special to me; I did not get to see all that people that I wanted to see before I left. For those few that I was able to see before leaving, I REALLY appreciate you taking the time to see me, spend time with me, and supporting me throughout this entire process. I couldn't do it with out y'all.

Next time I update, I will be in France where the adventure awaits...eek. Wish me luck.... I love y'all!
