How does one pack for something they can’t even comprehend?

In eight days, I’ll be flying out of DC with my friend Rebecca. We will spend two weeks together in France, and though I am in charge of the itinerary and can list for you the places we’ll go and the people we’ll see, I only speak of it as if I’m recapping the plot of a novel I just read.

Ever since this trip became a reality, I’ve been living in semi-denial. Whenever someone seems a bit too impressed by all of it, I point out that this is not something I ever thought I’d be doing. “This is the type of trip that Awesome People take, and which I read about on their blog.”

We have a lot of dreams and plans wrapped up in this trip, many which haven’t even started to flesh themselves out. I’m okay with that. It’ll develop as we go. I suspect you’ll find us at the airport Saturday, two brunettes sitting in the corner, gesturing wildly and talking a mile a minute, pausing to quickly create something on the laptop nearby. Dramatically pressing PUBLISH or SEND, then broadly smiling as they high-five.
