(Step 1: complete side head shaving for a the "ADVENTURE HAIR")
Tomorrow morning at 5am, I drive her to the Halifax airport so she can start her 33 hour journey to New Zealand... where she will live and backpack, by herself, for an entire year.

(Margaret and her life for the next year- all laid out on her 'nest' that she sleeps on when she visits)Experiencing this process with her; how people are reacting to her Adventure (surprisingly, a lot of negative nancies out there), how life becomes a constant set of emotional 'goodbyes', and how we re-evaluate what is absolutely necessary in our lives. I was thinking about how I'd prioritize a travel yoga mat... lol.
(Ms Margaret is READY for her Adventure)She's decided to blog about her journey (ok, really I told her she better friggin' blog and post pictures while she's there...) and I've given her a crash course in blogging over the course of the past two days. It's the cutest blog ever: "The Ginger Travels" (she's a redhead :) ).
She is so Courageous and I admire her Moxy and sense of Adventure.
A huge part of me is going to miss her while she's gone, despite this world of uber connectedness.
Bon Voyage ma Margaret, tu me manques déjà.
