Well friends,

Tomorrow Peace Corps staging begins here in Washington, D.C. and I’ll be meeting all the lovelies with whom I will be serving.  The number one question I’ve received these last few days has been, “Are you excited?”  Well, yes.  Absolutely.  But I’m meeting it with my own sense of calm.  It’s been over a year since I first submitted my application and this has been on my mind continuously ever since.  I’ve been through the strange doubts, slight nervous panic attacks as well as the dizzying giddiness.  Now we come to it at last and I’m ready for the adventure to begin.

Thanks to everyone who has seen me through to this moment.  Look forward to sharing stories.  Stay in touch.

Very best,
