This is all I have to share today, because my brain is a bit scattered. Our house is a mess, my suitcase is getting heavier and heavier, and I forgot to put deodorant on this morning before I scrambled out the door. So, instead of a well-written post about my thoughts or a picture of a beautifully crafted item, you get an encouraging red crow. (This might be more for myself, of course.)

 I snapped this photo in Toronto, Cananda in summer 2007, when Jesse and I were first starting to date. I was getting ready to move to Prague to teach English for a year, I was falling for this guy, my whole life was rapidly changing, and I was scared. I was also having the time of my life.

I’m feeling similar things now, too. We leave in one week!
