Final Countdown....3,2,1!

With only a few days left before departure, all of our plans are coming together quite nicely, and packing will commence today.

Christmas was great; getting to spend time with my family before I leave. I also received a few necessities for my trip: a guide to Great Britain, wool socks, the important face lotion for that dry winter skin, and footed PJs (thanks Brattons). Just so you have a little preview...

My Aunt Robin and I

If you have been keeping up with my blog or know me at all, you will know that I am not the most well dressed person, so I have had to invest some money into "teacher attire" so here is a little taste of what I have now. Notice the necklace I am wearing is one I bought while I was in Prague on my las t romp around Europe.

I also wanted to tell you all of my dear friend Jessica's blog. She is an aspiring photographer and does phenomenal work. She asked if I would be a model for one of her shoots, since it was a traveling theme, and I was happy to help her out. Here is the link to her blog, Check it out, she has some really great photos...and not just of yours truly!


  1. I'm so excited for you! I can't believe that you are leaving in just two days! I still have a week and a half and I'm starting to feel overwhelmed. I can't wait to hear all about your experiences!

  2. Hey it's Hailey. I love that picture of you & my mom. Again I'm sorry I didn't get to see you before your big adventure. I love you very much and I hope you have a great trip & I hope I get to hear from you soon! You are the best :)

  3. Well I will be following this blog as well as what Jim will be telling our bible study group here in Mineral Wells TX.
    Please know that we will keep you in our prayers and don't forget you have an Emergency contact there in Wales. My friend Martin is willing to help you if needed.
    Best of luck :)
