I'm leaving on a jet plane

Less than 24 hours to go. In fact, in 24 hours, I will be on the plane bound for Thailand, about an hour and a half into the flight. Hopefully Chantrea will be asleep by then!

These last few days have been crazy. Getting completely packed up and ready to go plus preparing to be a bridesmaid in a wedding and also basically being a single parent (although, I have an extremely supportive and helpful family, so it's not like I was really on my own). The wedding was beautiful, the bride was beautiful, everything went smoothly. The bride handed out iterneraries the night before the wedding, so if everything hadn't gone smoothly it would not have been due to lack of planning! It was a long day for little kids, though. The wedding was in Manti, Utah, the luncheon was in Mapleton (about an hour and fifteen minute drive) and the reception in Spanish Fork (near Mapleton). I have never been to a wedding that wasn't a bit of a marathon, though. It's such a big day. I'd love to be from a culture where everyone just eats and drinks and dances for three days. That's my idea of a good time. Still, I wouldn't have missed it for anything. I have one brother still single; he's a great catch so that won't be the case for long.

I am so ready to see John! This is going to be the longest plane ride EVER. . . .

I miss you already and Ethan misses Trea!! It was so fun to spend the day with you before you left. I found a mini magna doodle and a sippy cup in my car...sorry!

Post when you can. I want to hear about the trip and how you're doing. Love you!
