It's been a LONG couple of weeks with many good byes, tears and laughs.  This morning as I woke up, I had yet to pack one item or prepare my car for the long haul to Steamboat Springs, Colorado.  Nonetheless, it all was done and I am about to get some zzzzz's before I head out in the a.m. 

My plan is to wake up, put on some sweats and meet my dear friend Michele at a local bagel shop before I shoot up 75 North towards my first destination - St. Louis.  Now, if you know me, you know that I am NOT a morning person and 5 a.m. will not be the easiest for me.  There is no doubt that I will not be the happiest camper when I see her.  Bless her heart.  We'll see how it goes...

Tonight was capped perfectly with a phone call from my Mother demanding that I get plenty of sleep, to call her while on the road and to say she loved me.  Sleeping in in the a.m. is a family trait, so I do not guess I'll call her till mid-afternoon (smile).  In addition, my Dad called from Dubai a couple of minutes ago to tell me to drive safe and that he loved me.  I certainly feel the support of my friends and family as I start along this path.  Thank you!  I want to write more about that, but I believe I'll do that the next few days as I head out to Colorado.

Till then, here's to life's journey!

Giddy up,

I'm jealous
Heather...you are living my dream right now! On my list of things to do before I die is to go west and meet a real cowboy. When you get your roping skills mastered, think you could rope me a nice old cowboy and bring him back to me? Thanks for including me in your journal and allowing me to live vicariously through you. What an awesome adventure. I will keep you in my prayers as you travel and look forward to reading your posts.
Be blessed!
