From my IG account:
This is it. This is the bag that will carry all my belongings when I board my flight. What I’ll be living out of the next several weeks. I’m a mix of emotions this morning as I start packing. Excited, nervous, sad, nostalgic, terrified, happy. When I get on that plane, I start a new adventure, but before you start a new adventure you must say goodbye to the old one. And I’m not much for goodbyes, I’m more of a “I’ll see you next time” person. During this trip I’ll be separated from my husband and kids, and that’s hard on any mama and wife. But all dreams require a sacrifice, and we’re all in agreement that I’m leaving for a little while so that we can begin our new adventures together sooner rather than later. We know not everyone understands our love of traveling, of trying new things and going to new places, having new adventures. That’s just how we are and we’re okay with that. The experiences, life lessons, and friendships we make are invaluable, beyond words and worth more than money. We fall in love a little with each place that we stay at and it breaks our heart a bit when we leave, but we must and such is life. So this little bag of mine which stands empty now will be filled by the end of today. My heart will also be filled with memories and joy of all that has come to pass here in Texas. I will say my “till next time”, take a deep breath, wipe away a tear or two and then I will be ready to start this next adventure.
