Where I stayed
Today I woke up and did a few errands with Sarah (luckily Mom and Dad let her skip school, hehe), then Neil came over and we hung out and had lunch and he helped me finish getting all ready to go. Saying goodbye to him was REALLY REALLY hard.. one of the hardest things I've ever had to do..but I honestly think that was probably the worst of it
After that, me, my parents, Davis and Sarah left for Hartford. We had a nice family dinner at Ruby Tuesday's. Sarah made me a really nice handmade present about sisters and everything. She's so sweet.. I will miss her!! And all my family. They're such an amazing support system for me. Anyway, after dinner we all went to the airport together and said goodbye with lots of hugs, kisses, and promises to keep in touch. My Dad and I then flew down here to Texas. The flight was really quick and easy...believe it or not we go to Dallas half an hour early and they had a gate and everything! Sweet. We got Taco Bell, came back here and I settled in and had a shower, etc. I love being at this apartment. It's soo nice and it's comfortable too! I'm really excited to have be able to spend time with just me and Dad cuz that doesn't happen a lot and we always have so much fun together :) It's nice for me right now because I've gone through most of my hard goodbyes, and I'm all packed and ready, but I don't leave for Costa Rica til Friday so I have a few days to relax.
Yup, overall I'm feeling pretty good right about now! Still can't believe this is happening, in a way..but I feel good. It's gonna be such a cool feeling when I'm actually IN Puntarenas after all this planning and imagining. I bet it will be pretty surreal! To Neil, my friends, and family: I love you all and miss you very much. Please keep me in your hearts because you will be in mine. Thank you for the support and love.... you make me strong!! xoxo Julia :)
