Excellent Travel News

We still can't book tickets until May 9th, but I did find out this week that this lady is going to be my travel companion on this first trip:



(I love this clip so because I despise the book she is referencing, the ones that tell us to "manifest" things in our lives that we might be lacking).

Susan and Larry are some of our favorite friends in Los Angeles. We actually shared a house for a while when we were living in Portland and traveling down to Southern California every month or so for Ted's job. When we got that life-changing call on March 3, 2008, Susan was the first person who heard the news, as I ran across the dining room and sent the phone skidding across the hardwoods in my frantic rush to find Ted. As I called my mother to tell her the news, Susan was basically screaming and crying in the background. When we got back to the U.S. with our son, Susan was the first person to meet Abe on his first full day here. Plus, one time, she knitted me a tea cozy, which I still use several times a week.
Oh, and her book is wonderful, in case you are looking for something to read.

Susan is going to be the best travel buddy ever. I am beyond excited.

Oh you are going to have fun. Did you manifest her as a traveling partner? Your thoughts are powerful.

oh, how awesome! Her book is one of my absolute favourites that I've read over the last few years (so thank YOU for recommending it). If she is half as fun in person as her writing is, you are going to be the luckiest person on that plane. Hope you manage to manifest yourselves a business class upgrade. I hear they have better snacks.

Perfect.

This is so great. I'm glad she will be traveling with you! I love this clip. I too dislike...The Secret. We make fun of it all the time. Like, when we need to find a parking spot. I even watched the movie. I don't know how anyone can really live their lives by The Secret.
That clip is so great. I still need to read her book!
