I always think of that song whenever
I go on a trip, even if I'm going by car for some reason.
But I really am getting on a plane and leaving on a trip in about
a week! It became official Sunday when we purchased our flight tickets.
For some reason, everytime we decide to take a trip somewhere far away,
it is never planned. The idea came up only about a week or so
ago, and nothing was set in stone until we bought the tickets...
So in about a week I am off to Colorado!
I am excited we are going to be seeing family and visiting the sights, but
everytime I go to Colorado I have one issue: getting on the plane.
It's something that scares me, and not just scares me, but sort of haunts me
every day until the day comes when I actually have to get on the plane.
And then when it's over, I always say "That wasn't bad at all, it was actually
kind of fun". Except I never seem to remember that leading up to
I am sort of excited because it's a 6 a.m. flight and for some reason doing
things like this and waking up at some ungodly hour, like 4 in the morning,
makes something all the more exciting.
Yet I can't kick my fear. And if I have an anxiety attack, my guess is
that they won't stop the plane for me :/

I was reading one of my favorite blogs recently, the Pioneer Woman,
who shared this photograph she took on a plane soon after taking off.
It takes my breath away, and the thought of seeing something so majestic and beautiful
-even if I don't see anything quite this wonderful myself- does make me feel
more motivated to get on a plane. I almost feel that if I saw a view like this
out the window, I might be so awe-struck I'll forget about my fear.
These are just some thoughts I have had about the plane ride and the trip throughout
the last couple of days. For now, I will just keep my mind busy by packing
and planning and focusing on the fun I we'll have once we land.
