leaving on a jet plane

Here I sit alone at the airport waiting to board a plane to Palm Springs, CA for my first ever work trip. Last week I was promoted and it feels really really good, though I kinda feel like the moment I accepted, I became Tom Cruise in The Firm. Not in a sell-your-soul-to-the-devil way, but more in an exclusive-club-by-invite-only-here-have-a-bunch-of-stuff good way.

The hard part was saying goodbye for more than a typical 8 hour work day to this little one for the first time.

I’ll be back on Friday evening so it’s really just a quick little jaunt clear across the entire country, but I’m definitely leaving my heart in Chicago. I’m going to miss that face.
