Wow! We're leaving on our trip in 6 days! Less than a week! We have been planning this trip for 2 years and it's finally here! I can't even believe it!! Jon was telling me about what Christmas is like in Italy and it just made my heart glow! I'm so excited to see it! It sounds like it's more special there, bigger and brighter! I can't wait! We've been driving around at night a few times this week and it makes me sad. There are so few houses that even have lights on them this year, I wonder why that is... Jon is excited to put lights on our home, when we have one. He has it all planned. He loves doing stuff like that and I am thrilled that he does! I think it's awesome!
We got a new camera lens for our awesome camera! It's a zoom lens and it's pretty much amazing! I can't wait to use it on our trip!! I am feeling the need for taking pictures lately! Especially with all of the snow! Gosh I love the snow! I couldn't believe how much it snowed today! AWESOME! We hurried so we could leave the house to run our errands while it was still snowing. That's another thing that I enjoy about my darling husband, he LOVES driving in the snow! That means I don't have to. I love being in the snow, but I can't be in the drivers seat, too scary!
Anyway, I've thought of a lot of things that I want to start doing. Most of them have to do with myself, things I don't like about myself and want to improve. I want to be a better friend, I want to be less irritable, I want to be better at giving Jon gifts (I really suck at that), I want to be more crafty, I want to be more spiritual.... I just want to make things better in my life. Not that they aren't wonderful because they are! I love my life! I just want to make it even better, not only for me but for my husband and my future family as well.
Oh, and I have been baby crazy lately!! I think it's because for a while we were planning to start trying for a baby when we went on this trip and then things changed.... It's hard sometimes when I am so anxious, but I think it will be better for us in the end. Less stress. It'll be nice to not have to worry about moving while I'm pregnant, so that's a good thing. It sure doesn't change the fact that I get all sappy when I see anything that has to do with a baby.
Speaking of babies, my good friend Sharelle just had her baby boy!! They named him Brytton and he is SO adorable!! I want to go and see them but with our trip coming up we have been constantly busy and have literally ZERO time for anything!! It's sad. I got to see Zariah the other day though! She is so precious! She was tried and had an ear infection and was still happy and talkative! She is ADORABLE!! Anyway, this is getting long, so I guess I better go! Love you all!
