And she's off!

You might remember me telling you about my desire to go on a mission trip to Jamaica for Spring Break last fall - I said we'd be working in orphanages & that since kids are totally my thing, I thought it would be perfect for me.

 One of the girls who is going on the trip this year & has gone other years too.

Do you remember that?

Well tomorrow is the day that I get on the big bird and fly to Jamaica to make my dream a reality.

I have to say, I'm a little nervous because it seems like everyone is going with a friend except me - I'm all on my lonesome - but I'm hoping this gives me the opportunity to meet new friends I might not have met otherwise.

My camera is going to be attached to me & I promise to come back with lots of pictures & stories.

Until then, if you'd like to say a little prayer, please just pray that I will obviously make it there & back safely but also that I remember to remain in the moment and soak up the opportunity to the very fullest.

I'll be back next week with lots of colorful posts!

Try not to miss me too much.
