I'm baaaack!

Well, I had a great time. The Better Half became even better. We met people from all over the world. I had so much fun! I fell in love with Windsor, Canada, where my host family was staying. Plus, I got to meet some really cool Catholic leaders, like Cardinal George of Chicago, and Bishop Lobo of Pakistan and Bishop Ramirez of Las Cruces. I also met Matt Smith from MTVs The Real World. I learned much about my Catholic heritage and visited some really beautiful churches. I will try to write as much as I can from my tapes. Although it wasn't all sunshine and roses, and in fact I saw and experienced some really hurtful things, I choose to focus on the positive, and to show people how cool having faith can be; any faith, not just Catholicism.

My Better Half passed his teaching exams!!! I am so proud of him. Another thing that I realized on this trip was how much he meant to me. I watched him coordinate the trip, and when I ended up getting sick from heat exhaustion and missed the Papal Mass live, he made sure I got to a place where I could recooperate, and he stayed with me the entire time. I realized how safe he always makes me feel, and I realized that he was the one I wanted to share the rest of my life with. I told him this, and he smiled and said, "Me too, but I've known it for a long time."

So, I will tell you the story...starting tomorrow. Let a girl rest for heck's sake!
