Well, friends, it's that time. I'm heading out tomorrow morning, and since I'm too excited to sleep, I'm writing a little note to you all....
I'm heading back to the place I called home for most of my life, and I have to say that it's like Christmas has come early to me!
Part of me is kvelling.... the other part is a little bit nervous. I'll tell you why. What if I am disenchanted with what I used to think was the best of the best? What if I no longer feel in love with my home state? I've really enjoyed living here in Bethlehem, PA. It took me a little while to find my place, but now that I have, I really like it here. Will I find it as beautiful in northern California as I remember it to be? Will I be freaked out by the traffic? It's been a long time since I've been there... will it have changed so much that I don't recognize it anymore? Will I get lost?
I guess it will be an adventure, either way! One thing is for sure, though... I'll be seeing my friends and family again, and that's always a beautiful thing. I'll be near the ocean again, and that's another friend that I've missed. I'll have my eyes wide open, now. I'll be absorbing as much as I can, storing it up for the years to come. I won't take anything for granted on this trip. That's something that I can be sure of.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! I'll be seeing you soon!
