I cannot believe we leave in a few short days. I am nervous and extremely excited. I have so much to do but have accomplished so much as well.

I feel like this trip should be a breeze since we have been through it before. But it is anything but a breeze.

But soon it will all be worth it once I have my baby girl in my arms!!!
