I mean, I was ecstatic to see him last time, but I was also a little afraid. So much time had passed, and though we did our best to communicate through letters and a phone call each week, it was difficult. I was terrified that we'd have changed... But I was worried for nothing, as usual. We did change, but we did it together somehow. We managed to stay in perfect balance, maturing and growing together even though we were apart. This experience has been every bit as much as journey for me as it has been for him...
Anyway, now I have none of those fears. Now I am completely consumed by excitement and anticipation. I am not nervous or apprehensive in the least, and in only nineteen short days I will be in the place that is the closest to heaven I have ever known. And what with the stress of finals and my first ever time on a plane and the fact that Christmas break means a solid month without pay for student workers... It can't come fast enough. I need a break from Kentucky problems right about now.
And a little bit closer to home, I've finally caught Christmas fever. :) The tree is up, the first presents are underneath, and I'm breaking out the Christmas candy recipes. It even snowed for the first time a couple days ago. It was beautiful, and I hope it keeps on coming. It might be nineteen days until heaven, but it's only sixteen until Christmas, so in honor of both looming dates can we get a holiday themed happy dance over here? Yes? Why thank you!
PS. Also, don't forget about my Blogging Birthday Bash on the sixteenth! There's still time to sign up if you want to be entered for a chance in my giveaway! :)
