I shall miss you.
I am leaving... to go camping!
I am very excited. My friend Lydia and I are meeting up at 9am to set off (or maybe pack up the car then head off... depends on how on top of things we are). We're spending two days in the mountains of North Carolina. We're going to a campground I went to as a kid with my parents. I thought it was great then, and I anticipate Lydia and I will enjoy ourselves immensely.
And we'll be basically totally cut off. I mean, we'll have a phone for emergencies, but it's a prepaid cell, so we're not using it for anything else! (I will miss Ryan like crazy!) I anticipate this not only be a great time of swimming and s'mores and tent pitching adventures, but also a time for praising and seeking God. I'm praying for a specific prayer request to be answered during this trip.
Oh! And I'm excited because I was praying I'd get my next book to review in the mail in time to take it on the vacation and... it came! So that will be great. I love, love, love to read!
So we'll be there all day Thursday and Friday and then on Saturday our plan is to get up before sunrise on Saturday, drive to an eastern facing overlook and watch the sunrise. That way we get in something really cool before we pack up in a hurry, doll ourselves up, and hurry to a friend's lunchtime wedding where we're bridesmaids!
I will definitely tell you all about both the trip and wedding when I get back. Right now I'm gathering things up for packing. I slept really late today so I'm just not sleepy yet. I am hoping I will be able to get in at least a few hours of shut-eye before leaving.
