Goodnight, Grand Rapids

May 20th, 2010

I’m packed!

I’ve got enough smell-good sprays, facial cleansing wipes, and outfit changes to keep me smelling/looking presentable.

I’m even packing a pashmina shawl that I’ve not had many opportunities to use. Any item of clothing that can double as a blanket is a valuable bartering tool on a transpacific flight. Same goes for the Kashi bars and extra pair of socks I’ll have stashed.

I know these things.

My entertainment for the evening? iBooks via the iPad. I now have a slew of free iBooks downloaded, and couldn’t help but purchase a few I’ve had my eye on. I’ll have plenty to do on our lengthy flight.

Saying one final goodbye to my grandparents tonight left me in tears, but I’m ready to go.

I’ll be updating you all as soon as possible. Goodnight!

  • See you soon 🙂 And you’ll definitely appreciate the pashmina, if only to help block out the chill in Auckland!

  • I’m excited for you but can’t believe you’re really leaving. I’m gonna miss you girl. We’ll definitely have to have Skype dates. Hope the initial adjustment goes great!

  • WE miss you all ready. We are praying for you. We love you. Hope your trip was O.K.
    Love, Grandpa and Grandma Z

  • Grand Rapids is lonesome without you!
