You guys! I leave the country in less than two weeks!! Ah!!!!
As someone who has a 9-5 job, it is such a treat to be able to take a long vacation abroad. I'm lucky to have a boss who values what we want to do and doesn't hold us back. I am eternally grateful for this opportunity. I cannot wait to introduce my husband to my mom's side of the family and watch him get stared at for being "a white guy." I cannot wait to gorge myself on all the tasty foods and purchase cute, but useless cell phone charms in the shapes of emojis. Gah!! I'm getting too excited right now. One sec while I calm down.
Anyone who knows me knows that one of my biggest goals in life is to be able to give my future kids the opportunity to fill their passports and see the world, just as I did growing up. Yes, they may not appreciate it fully in the moment, but in time they will look back and understand what an incredible blessing it is to be able to immerse themselves in foreign cultures. It is truly like nothing else: each one so interesting, so unique, so beautiful.
