I've been telling family and friends that I will send updates and pictures of my adventures in New Zealand. Hopefully I will keep this blog up to date and you will be able to see pictures and hear some of my stories on here!
This past weekend we celebrated my parent's 35th wedding anniversary. It was a wonderful weekend full of family and fun. I know my parents enjoy having the family all home to celebrate, but it was also a blessing for me to see everyone before I left. I've also been able to see friends from home as well as make a few trips back to Columbia to see friends. I know I will see them all again once I return, but it has helped me prepare to go bye saying goodbye.
It's hard to believe I'm leaving in three short days! I've been preparing since September for this trip and now it is finally happening! I'm not sure what these next few months will bring, but I am so excited to see what will happen and what I will learn!
Now it's crunch time to get everything packed and get all the last minute details finalized!
