‘Twas the Night Before Spain

‘Twas the night before Spain,
And inside her casa,
Kasey was trying to pack,
And thinking about pasta.

Shirts, pants,
A skirt and a dress,
Kasey’s suitcase was
Certainly a mess.

Okay, okay, I can’t think of anymore verses of The Night Before Christmas. So I’ll get to the real stuff:

I am leaving for Spain.

It doesn’t seem real. I cannot believe it’s happening right now. In a matter of hours, I will be on a plane en route to Madrid where I’ll spend the next 10 months. Honestly? I’m terrified. I’ve cried 100+ the past few days (the ugly kind), and I’m already homesick. 


I am so incredibly excited. Excited about what I’ll see, what I’ll do, what I’ll learn. This is going to be the craziest adventure and I cannot wait.

I have to give a huge THANK YOU to everyone that has supported me in this endeavor. Family, friends, neighbors, and well-wishers: you have no idea how thankful I am for your encouragement and support. From the application process to the packing to the tears: I owe it to you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Alright. Here we go. Next time I post, I’ll be in SPAIN!

Adiós for now. Besos!
