The Husband got me the best gift ever this year: a solo trip to New York City! This has been one of the best gifts he’s ever given me and it was a total surprise. I have wanted to go to NYC for a long time now and now I’m going! I am so excited! This will be my first big trip by myself as well as my first trip to NYC and I’m so looking forward to it!
I have to take a minute to brag on my Hubby…he really is great! He’s so good to me and I could say it a million times a day and it wouldn’t be enough. The best husband and father ever! The Lord has really blessed me with him.
I have the plane tickets, the hotel and my museum tickets ready. Everything is packed with the exception of my clothes (still gotta check the weather closer to the departure date). I can’t wait!
Now, I also want to say I’m a bit anxious about this trip. I have never traveled this distance or flown by myself. It is a little intimidating because of the unknown but I’m up for the challenge. My motto right now is “Let your faith be bigger than your fear.” I think it is always important to keep stretching yourself and always be ready for a new challenge. It is good to get out of your comfort zone when you can because this is when you really grow.
I’m up for doing a trip that is just all about what I want to do. That sounds so selfish as I read it back…I don’t mean it that way, I really don’t. The Husband is really a good travel buddy and we always have a great time together. It will just be nice to not have to take anyone else’s feelings, tastes, wake up times, etc. into consideration. In some ways I’m not sure how I will do. I’m so used to asking everyone else what they want and need that it will be weird to rely solely on what I want. I had never really thought about it before.
I’m really going to miss the Husband and my Little Man. As much as I am looking forward to going and enjoying myself I’m looking forward to getting back to them more.
