We are down to the day before, and the excitement is building. It will be worth getting up at 2:00 AM to catch a flight. This is the trip of a lifetime for me, and I am extremely thankful to have this opportunity.
Everyone is asking if I have finished packing yet, and the answer is, "Of course not!" For this trip, however, I will refrain from waiting until the car arrives to start throwing stuff in a suitcase.
