In route.

This is my first mobile post. I guess we'll see how it goes. We are in route to Temecula, my stomach in knots. I'm so thankful for the company of Kevin's parents and our bloom, of course. We are making the trek from Phoenix. The miles in between are enough I hope, to let go of the anticipation.

I don't know what it feels like to go home, to where my mom once lived. Walking through the front door feels like the hardest step. To not be greeted by her hello, embrace or incessant giggles when she sees Chloe's face.

I told Kevin last night that I feel too young to be doing this. Going home to sort through my mom's belongings. Even though I'm thirty years old, I don't feel ready for this journey. I suppose you never are.

For now I'll enjoy the backseat view of the of the dry, brittle desert and clear blue sky.

If you are reading this, can you say a little prayer for me?

You are in my thoughts and prayers. Hope it goes as well as it can. And you are too young, that is why it is probably is extra hard. Keep going, you can do it.

I know what you mean about being too young to lose a parent. All that sorting, going through your parent's belongings, is really tough, but it's kind of nice to revisit, or discover, special times and memories in their life. Good luck - we're thinking of you :)
