This is the way all good stories should begin.
My story began a long time ago, but my life, like all lives, has chapters. In 18 days, I am set to begin one of these new periods of my life.
On August 20th, I am flying off to France for the year.
I've been planning this trip for such a long while, yet, as my departure date draws nearer, I've become increasingly anxious. Though life abroad is bound to be as full of adventures and surprises as any good story, I leave behind many things here that I've known, and grown to love.
Over the few weeks remaining until I leave, I'll be documenting the people, places, and things I will miss here at home, before chronicling my upcoming adventures across oceans.
