Last Minute-ness

last night, i went shopping at Target, grabbing some last minute items for south africa. got everything i needed (minus the salt & vinegar pringles i was so hoping they would have).

i honestly can’t believe i am leaving in 2 days. its been 18 months since the last time i went. 6 months since the disappointment of March’s kidney stone diversion. to be this close is just freaking me out. is it really happening? yes!! but if i hear one more kidney stone joke between now and when i leave, some of my hair will get pulled out.

this whole leaving the country thing always throws me for a loop. putting everything on hold, leaving my home and my job and traveling across the world for 2 weeks. life at home just kinda gets shut off. shut off from anything familiar. its truly a whirlwind, but so worth it!

what is your favorite/least favorite thing about traveling?

prayer needs – please pray for us!


  1. I love getting to a new place but I hate the actual traveling part of it. Airports, train rides, car rides, I hate it. I just want to get to where I am going.

    But I love going away from home because I always learn so much about myself. I would just appreciate a teleportation machine. 🙂

    Praying for you lots!
