Month 2: Road Trip!

In the midst of almost getting everything in order comes something very exciting!!! One of my best friend’s birthdays!!! When JS invited me on a girls road trip for her birthday I couldn’t say yes fast enough.  A weekend in North Carolina we would spend one night at her parents’ home in the country and the other night in Chapel Hill a quant yet lively college town. 
Unfortunately as the time grew closer for the fun girl’s weekend, I started to get nervous. I started to feel all this anxiety like the first day of school. I kept on calling Ms. T asking her questions; I wanted all the details what time WE were leaving, what car[] would we be taking, was the car safe, how much we would be spending, where would we be going exactly.   After every phone conversation, I felt comforted for about 30 min then the anxiety would come back. The truth was there was nothing she could say to calm me, the anxiety was coming from the fact that I would be leaving my husband for a weekend.
I couldn’t believe it - two months into my marriage and all of sudden I couldn’t leave him. What happened to the independent go getter he married? I had to pull myself together and push through it. And let me tell you it was well worth it. Guess who had FUN? Me! And I hope JS did too since it was her birthday!!!  All my anxiety faded about 15 min into the car ride. I love North Carolina. It was sweet in every way. People held the doors for me, all the houses seem to have big yards and with welcoming porches, and food was delicious!
