I Am Ecstatic

Yesterday I booked a flight for myself and Chris to go to Michigan the first week of December, for a whole week!

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 ;) ]

Yay for taking new steps.

I am all about mental health. Taking time off is amazing, and you definitely deserve it.

Yay Michigan!

That's crazy that you've never met his parents and that it's been like TWO YEARS since he's seen his family. INSANE. So weird! I couldn't do that.

I love flying too - the whole travel experience, actually. :)
