Sayonara! (with music!)

So tomorrow is the day that I leave for the Dominican Republic!! Eeep! It's crazy...I feel like we just found out about the trip, when really we found out months and months ago! It's come up so fast!
All my packing is finally finished, and now all that's left to do is wait until 8 o'clock tomorrow night! That's when we go to the church, sleep on the pews (YES!!!) until 3 in the morning, and then we hop out of "bed", into a bus, and us girls on the trip will make our way to Pittsburgh where we leave at 7:15 for the Dominican Republic!
I'm a tiny bit nervous (I've never been farther than South Carolina :P), but mostly so excited because I already feel that this trip is going to be amazing. I can't wait to get there, to meet the Dominican people (especially children) and get to know them and love them!
I can't wait to see what God's going to do with this trip...but I really believe that there's something we'll each learn and take from this trip. ;)
So yeah, I'll be gone for a week, and eventually I'll be back to blogging. So adios, amigos!
Oh but wait! I leave you with this playlist of my current favorite songs:

This last song never ever gets old.
