Final Countdown

Well folks, I am starting to wake up from  my dream. I have two more exams to finish before I depart and head back to the states. It has been an amazing few months that I would not trade for anything. Not only have I learned so much about myself but I have made so many, hopefully, life long friends. It has an adventure of the best kind.

Last night I joined many of the kiwis in watching fireworks at the beach. It was one of the best memories I have made while being here. We all laughed, swam in the dark ocean waters and I realised just at home I felt with these people. I knew that I would love New Zealand but the fact that it has showed me love in return is amazing. This place welcomes you with open arms and a warm meal. I have loved every second of my time here and simply can not wait for the day that I can return…permanently.

With this said, I am very much looking forward to seeing my parents and pets when I return to the states. I have missed them very much and know that many hugs and kisses are in order when I arrive at the airport. My friend Maddie is on the same flight back and being my best friend for this entire trip, my mom is taking us to In-and-Out upon our return! Maddie and I are very excited to say the least :) This will also serve as a gift exchange between my mom and I for belated birthdays and such.

It’s been Sweet As, New Zealand. Save me a spot until I can come back.
