Charleston, It’s a Wrap!

Image © 2016/Denise Ippolito Photography ~ Topaz Impression and Topaz B&W Effects

I am back home in New Jersey after a flight delay leaving Charleston yesterday. I can’t tell you how nice it is to be laying in my own bed typing this blog post 🙂 . I need to get up and start packing for Namibia. I will be leaving NJ in 3 days. My first priority is to see my grand kids and give them lots of hugs and kisses. Try to catch up on my bills and mail. In addition I need to unpack, wash my clothes, pack my bag again and arrange for transportation to JFK. Yikes! It seems overwhelming at times but “one day at a time” and “I can do it”. Positive thinking always helps me get things done. If I told myself over and over again that I could never get everything done, I probably couldn’t. There is a soft voice inside of me saying you can do anything you want if you try hard enough -within reason anyway!
