I am going to be a bridesmaid in a wedding at the end of this month so I will be travelling from Seattle to Pittsburgh, PA by myself. I have flown alone, but never that far, so I'm a little bit nervous about that. On top of the nervousness is also excitement! This may sound completely nuts, but I have never actually met the girl whose wedding I'm in. We have been pen-pals since jr high, so just about 20 years we've been writing, texting, emailing, talking on the phone, all that. We have been friends for long than most of my "real life" friends. I love her to death and consider her family. I've talked to her mom several times on the phone, and I can't wait to meet them all. I am also hoping to meet a couple fellow CM'ers while I'm out there :-) Hopefully as long as I can keep reminding myself of the great fun that awaits me after the 8ish hours of travel, I won't have too much anxiety.
