Leaving on a Jet Plane...

Ok so I am sure I have used this title before but what can I say I am a sucker for overused phrases.
Heading to the airport in T minus 6 hours and am super excited/anxious.

I always get anxious before I travel I think its the combination of the following...
1. Did I forget anything?
2. Do I have money?
3. Will I get to the airport on time?

And a plethora of other thoughts seem to cross my mind, but the moment I get on that plane...its on!!!

So I will be blogging as often as possible from the comfort of the AMAZING Lime Tree Hotel. Its the best place to stay in London. Hands down. You can check it out here.

Please be praying for safety and favor as I stroll through the streets of a town I love so very much.

London...let's do this!
