My trip to New Bern…=)…


I spent the night of my birthday packing. I was flying to North Carolina early the next morning for a quick weekend trip to visit a girlfriend of mine….a birthday gift to myself, hey! it was my 21st haha=)  ….and I didn’t get started packing until about 12 o'clock (when all my siblings had finally gone home or to bed) and so when I finally had my shower etc. and was completely ready for bed it was way after 2:00 am. And on top of this I had to get up at 4:00 am…surprisingly I woke up to my alarm and I was pretty much awake, after only a few short hours of sleep=) (I slept a lot on the plane) My first trip to do solo and it was so much fun! It was so enjoyable traveling alone that I will be doing it A LOT more before I die=)

You know those trips you look forward to and think about so much, that when they happen there kinda a let down. Due to your expectations being way too high. But this visit wasn’t like that at ALL.  It was everything I imagined…no it was even better! Anne worked out all the plans, what we were doing each day etc., before hand and it turned out to be a magical weekend…one spent with such an incredible family. I will never be able to be thank them enough, for everything! They have no clue how welcome and special they made me feel.

Anne is a wonderful friend, we met several years back at a mutual friend’s wedding… She’s put up with me growing up, all my awkward life phases etc. I don’t know how and she still likes me…haha=) She’s a dear friend and I’m so blessed to have her in my life. I’m so grateful that God allowed our paths to cross.

So naturally I took pictures…enjoy=)
