Ahhh saying goodbye to my family was tough... Leaving my girls behind was my first obstacle. I knew it was going to be emotional because we always do everything together. The most I have ever been apart from them was 2 days. So being away from them for 12 days was a big step for all of us. I am so proud of the way they handled themself regarding me going... how brave they have been and how "for me" they have been. I know that me going has left an impression on their hearts, one they remember for a long time to come. Having my Hubby and girl's support - has been huge!
I spent a glorious day in Jhb with two of my sweetest friends, Rene and Sonia @ Billi Bi's. Which was such an awesome way to start my travels. I was really nervous about my trip because I hadn't done an international trip for almost 20 years. I really didn't have a clue what I was doing... I was out of my comfort zones and I was rather sleep deprived. I had worked flat out right up until the hour I left. Isn't it always like that... I changed into comfie clothes at the airport before I checked my luggage when I found #loveletters from my girls in my bag... I just burst into tears!! I think the build up of emotions and months of planning... the day was finally here... the start of my #AdventuresinItaly.
