The flight was on Virgin Australia and it was a fabulous flight. It was over 15 hours of flight time to get to Australia. Yes, I slept on and off. My mind was racing. I kept thinking of my family, my husband and my business. Take it day by day. I was and am just so fortunate to love what I do. I am being blessed and I can see the results of my hard work and passion for what I am doing. When I arrived in Australia, I only had less than a hour to board another flight to NZ. It was another long 4 hour flight and I was starving at this point. Oh well, at least I was on that flight.
I arrived and went to baggage claim. None of my bags made it. I am teaching in a few hours here and I will be without my samples, project to teach and supplies. I have nothing to offer them but myself. Thankfully, they will have kits that I sent over weeks ago. (looking at the positive). I went to the supermarket last night and got some basic essentials. I am looking forward to today. I know that it's not going to be what I planned, but that's okay. Lately, I am realizing that plans often change and being able to adapt is key. I hope the students don't mind. My bags will come later today.
Also, guess what? My lost bag from that Delta flight showed up too. I forgot to update that. Anyway, I am here. I am grateful for the opportunity to share what I love so much. I was here last year too. Michele and Jodi are the ultimate hosts and make me feel so loved.
I am having big time email issues. I can't get on and email or even read the emails in my account- so if you are trying to reach me... just know I'm having some issues. I will be working on it.
I wanted to share a few more photos from my products at the NYC Stationery show:
|This is my booth. I am in love with how beautiful and simple it was. I love white and the gold with the blue accents.|
I wanted my products to be the focus.
I can't wait to show you more. It is the middle of the night here in NZ and I am up and going. I can't sleep and the time change is significant. If you are trying to reach me, I am trying to figure out how to get things working.
