The Rhews Go International!

Y'all, Deek and I made our first international trip! SUCH a serious and total blast!

As you may or may not know, I am *terrified* of flying. I mean it's phobic level. When I was young, I was on a flight that almost crashed, and it scarred me. My parents had elected to get us an earlier flight that day, and because of that, they were sitting at the emergency exits. I remember them frantically reading the manuals as we became weightless from falling out of the sky. I remember the really old lady beside me gasping for air and clutching her chest with fear, and I worried she'd die before the rest of us hit the ground. It was awful. AWFUL!

But Deek and I have big plans for travel, now and in the future, and I don't want my fears to hold me back. So, when work afforded us the opportunity to travel internationally, we took it.

I am X number of years old and have never left the US of A. So, I had to go get my very first passport, like a big girl. I was TOTALLY stoked to have a real, live passport and be officially sanction to travel the world whenever I choose.

The momentous day finally arrived, and it was time for me to get on a plane again. I can't even tell you how grateful I am that Deek was by my side. He was so loving and encouraging. He helped me through each flight, explained things when I had questions, and held me when I was scared. He was my rock. I adore this man more than I can say, and every day, I find reasons to adore him more!

I love this man so much!

Holy crap. I'm on an airplane.
We always ended up sitting near the flight attendants.
This worked out well for me because I figured if they looked like all was well, it probably was.
And they cheered for me when we landed. LOL!

Yeah, not thrilled.

I peeked out the window occasionally.

Deek is my rock!
He's so calm, so patient, so loving, and so very encouraging!

I don't like flying, but I do like airports.
Philly's was really cool!

Liquid courage. LOL!

And we're on the second flight. Lawd Jesus.

Peeking out again

I always feel safe when he's around.

Finally, the reward!
We landed safely, took a little nap, and then....
I got to have a special outdoor dinner with the most handsome man in the world!

Stay tuned for more about the Rhews' first international adventure!!
