Hi ho, Hi ho, it’s off to Michigan we go

Well ya’ll…we’re off! I’ll probably be in the air when you’re reading this, hopefully Zoe is sleeping peacefully in my lap, or thoroughly entertaining the passengers around us. My sister gave me a “big sis” pep talk last night, and help me arrange my bags. I feel more organized than ever…which helps me feel at peace.

Yesterday, running all the errands that I had to run, I actually felt a whole lot of peace. My anxiety is gone. Thank God! I’m really not used to worry…that’s a new one with motherhood. When we get to Michigan, we’ll hit the ground running. We’re going immediately to a birthday party, then I have to leave the party and get fitted for my bridesmaids dress, hopefully we’ll be settled into our friend’s house by 9. Then Saturday morning is our first wedding where we’ll see TONS of my old friends…SO looking forward to that! Sunday I’ll make a few more rounds and then we have a baby shower that evening. What a crazy busy weekend! But, I’m really really really looking forward to it.

I can’t wait to show Zoe my old stomping grounds. She’ll never remember it, but there’s something really cool about bringing my daughter back to the place where I spent some of the best years of my life. Obviously, at the same time, it will be bittersweet because Brad still hasn’t had the opportunity of seeing the beautiful state of Michigan. But, there’s always another time.

In the meantime, while I’m gone, I have a few posts lined up and then hopefully we’ll have a few guest bloggers around these here parts…and maybe, just maybe, I’ll be able to sneak some time away on a computer up there and post some updates. Either way…stay tuned…we’re still going to be up and running next week.

Happy Friday ya’ll!
