Happy 4th!

Okay, so I'm a day late. But I just spent a lovely holiday with my family and a cute boy!! :) (I made it to the airport just fine for those that care.) A nice barbeque, games, lots of neighbors and friends, and of course, fireworks.... Fireworks are really nice when you are snuggled up with someone...
Anyway, the point for me posting today was because I was thinking about our country and the true luxuries we enjoy and take for granted every day. Having lived in a 3rd world country, I have seen first hand how blessed we really are. So here's a shout-out to all those service men and women giving up these same luxuries just to protect them for you and I. And to also remember our forefathers who gave up just as much- if not more- for the very same reason. I am grateful. God Bless America.

I hate Driving!

So it's really interesting how I can totally handle navigating myself around the cities of the Amazon without blinking an eye... Yet I hate traveling to places I don't know. I honestly have a phobia of being in the middle of traffic making people honk at me as I find my way... Although it never has actually happened. Today I am going to the airport to pick up Dallen and I am nervous. I've never driven to the airport before and I don't know what to do once I get there. Yes, my heart is already beating with even the thought of it!! I have asked a number of poeple about how to get there and where to go, I have it mapquested, and I'm still having an anxiety attack over it!! Okay maybe not to that extent.. but I still hate it. I am a small-town girl and always will be. I just hate driving-- end of story.
