On to more important business ... Guess what? Last week, I booked a ticket to Scotland to see Katie and Amy in the spring! Being so far apart from my best friend has been really tough this year - so many days over the past 7 months I have just wished I could see her. Evan can attest to this ... every once in a while I just look at him and say "This feels like a Katie day".
They came home for two weeks in February and gave me the surprise of a lifetime. I had no idea they were coming ... I thought I was going to her parents house for dinner and we got SO much more. Her visit home made me realize, even more than ever, that what we've got going on is something awesome. It felt like we had never been apart.
I am going to be visiting them with my sister-in-law. It will be a great celebration at the end of the term. My sister-in-law will have just finished her MA and I will have just finished the first year of my MA. It will be a well deserved holiday. It's also the first time that either of us have been to Europe. I am so excited. If any of you have been to Scotland I'd love to hear any suggestions on things to see/places to go! I am counting down the sleeps....
