Just waiting for the plane!

This feels so totally surreal.  We are just waiting in the airport for our flight to ETHIOPIA! No Way!

A few hours ago I flew back from Atlanta--from the a truly awesome weekend of meeting some of the coolest moms whose blogs I've been following for such a long time, learning so much about what to expect along this journey, and even picking up some great hair-care tips for little ones with dark skin.  (Oh, I so loved meeting so many of you! And I'm so excited for what each of your futures hold. :)

So, J met me at a more "local" airport and then we drove over to JFK.  We leave tonight around 10 and should get into Ethiopia (via Germany) sometime tomorrow afternoon this time (night time there).  Then on Tuesday morning we will meet sweet little girl for the first time!  How crazy fun is that?!

(BTW, I'm thinking this time change might just be the sleeping schedule I have dreamed of for so long. ;)  I am so much more productive late at night--I usually go to bed after midnight.  As you can imagine I get pretty tired in the afternoon.  Well, the afternoon here (the time I always wish I could take a long nap) is nighttime in Ethiopia.  I can take the longest "naps" I've ever wanted to! ;)

The next time I post will be from Ethiopia.  Can't wait to share the experience! :)

On our way!
