I drove Craig and Savannah to the airport today to go to his niece's wedding on Thursday. A few months ago when we were being practical and dividing up our time and vacation budget, it seemed like a great idea to let them go to Utah without the rest of us.
Today, not so much.
But...Savannah is thrilled about the trip. She was so excited to pack her entire bathroom into her ridiculously huge make up case. She was excited to fly on a plane. And she is SO excited to be a bridesmaid in her cousin's wedding.
I dropped them off at the airport and after excessive hugging let them go inside.
Two minutes later I got this text...
She told Craig that this was officially the Best. Day. Ever...and she hadn't even left Dallas.
I'm so happy that Savannah and Craig are going on a little adventure together. They almost never do that. I'm grateful for frequent flyer miles. And I'm grateful that Mack Brown made Savannah's day.
I will try to pull myself together tonight and not miss them, not long for my Utah family, not wish that we hadn't been so dang practical in May, and just wait patiently for the report about their trip.
Wish me luck...
