Heading to CA

Kirk and I are leaving for Thanksgiving in California tonight. It's our first "big holiday" as a married couple, plus the first time we'll spend time with my family and friends since we got married almost 6 months ago. (I can hardly believe it's almost been 6 months, but at the same time I can hardly remember my life without him in it!)

I'm fully looking forward to Thanksgiving with the fam. We live all over the place now -- us in Florida, Bobby in Arizona, Dan and Mitch in Los Angeles, and Mom and Beth in the Inland Empire -- but somehow we're all making it to the same house on Thanksgiving day. This is especially special because none of us will be together on Christmas (which is weird). Anyway, I'm looking forward to lots of laughs -- especially with my big brother Bobby being there, who is always the life of the party -- and good connection.

The other thing I'm really looking forward to about this experience is getting to share "me and Kirk together, as one" with everybody else. I don't quite know what to expect about what that will be like, but I'm fully looking forward to experiencing the feeling of this: my oneness with him while with those I most love.
