so long, david
David leaves today for a ten day trip to Northern Ireland. He is leading a group of ten college students, and they plan to serve at a school outside of Belfast, as well as spend some time exploring the country. I wrote him these ten little letters for him to open each day while he is there, which is something we both like to do for each other when we are apart.
I so wish I was one of those independent people who thrived when their spouse was away, but I am afraid I am the opposite. I am sure some of it has to do with us getting married at such a young age, so neither of us have lived independent from one another before. I certainly wouldn't change our young marriage, but I could learn a thing or two from some of my girlfriends (who probably think this all sounds pretty needy). But I am telling you, without sticking to a strict schedule for myself, you can pretty much bet that you will find me on the couch eating mac n' cheese and pringles watching reruns of jerseylicious.
So here's to a productive and fun ten days!
