I was flying off to the Netherlands for three months! It's hard to believe it's been so long and how much my life has changed since then. A year ago today (and tomorrow and the next day) were the hardest/loneliest few days of my life and I survived. I can conquer anything! Right? There can't be that many hard things left in my life (except maybe childbirth...and marriage...and root canals... and death....).
