My mother and I are on our way to New Orleans today.
This is huge since I have not been on a real trip in years. Mostly because I hate to travel, but if I'm honest I've gotten a bit too attached to my nest. Leaving for too long makes me uncomfortable. So this trip is more then just a "happy 50th birthday" and more of a chance for the old me who used to enjoy new experiences and taking chances to reappear.
Wish me luck.
