In twenty-four hours, my hubby and I will be boarding a flight to Amsterdam, the first stop on our grand European adventure! I. Am. So. Excited.
Ever since we got married, we've loved to travel together. Thankfully, we've had the opportunity to go to some wonderful places together, but we've never been to Europe as a couple. In fact, Pierce has never been at all. I'm so grateful that we have the opportunity to share this world together!
Pierce really wants to see Rome. I really want to see Amsterdam, although I could die happy if I just saw the Anne Frank House and nothing else. Her diary is the reason I started keeping a journal when I was eleven, and her story has kept me going, year after year, as a writer. Such a young woman with such an old soul. A beautiful spirit lost to the world, but not completely.
We'll spend a few days in Amsterdam and then fly over to Barcelona, where our cruise begins. After that, it's Marseilles, Split, Croatia, Florence, Pisa, Rome, and Venice! So I'm just preparing you now. There will be lots of photos. This trip will probably keep my blog going for a least a month. Just saying...
Oh, and on another exciting note: I reached my second trimester today! I can't believe it's been thirteen weeks already. Happy May to you all!
