I know you're like, uh, Michigan? Why the heck would you be excited about going there..in DECEMBER?! Well, a few reasons!
For one, I haven't been on a vacation (more than a weekend trip to Shaver) since two summers ago. I know that's kind of whiny of me but I have needed a long break from work for a long time. Mental health, people! I also loooooooove flying (Steph is gonna kick me for saying that).
Oh and the most important reason would be that I finally get to meet all of Chris' family. I kind of alluded to this the other day, but in short, we met online and I have been there once (before he moved out here to CA), but we weren't "dating" or whatever so I didn't meet them. So, Chris hasn't seen his family since June of 2006 - wtf! That's forever, and I would die if I hadn't seen my family in even a month.
Why we haven't been out there...mostly lack of money and ability for him to take vacation time. I've been wanting to go for a long time, obviously, because we are serious and I feel like there's a part of him I do not know. And that makes me sad. So this is going to be really good for us [oh and next step to getting closer to this I hope ;) ]
