I Have Arrived!!!

Welcome to Schiphol Airport

It seemed like an eternity to get there - I kept waking up and looking at the map to see how far away we were.  It was nice that I had a whole row to myself on the leg from Houston to AMS although I still couldn't really get comfortable.  I was soooo excited and nervous too!  I hadn't seen Brett in a month - I know not that long, but it felt like a year! :-( 

I hurried off the plane, exhausted just from the weight of my carry on luggage, breezed through passport control, found my luggage, grabbed a cart and I was off and running.  Brett said he'd wait for me to the right of the arrival area and I walk out and there are a TON of people around.  Eeek!  Then I look all the way down to the right and spot my honey! :D 

Of course his first order of business is to photograph me and my 10,000 lbs of luggage! LOL.  I borrowed the pic - thanks honey! :-)  He had a white rose for me which was incredibly sweet (since Brett claims to not have a single romantic bone in his body)!

I was soooo relieved once I saw him and it was like all the stress and lack of sleep was worth it to finally be there and together again!  Although I looked like heck after trying to sleep on the plane, we were off and running to do a little sightseeing before heading back to Eindhoven.  Since his big Bday TB meet up was the next day, I kinda wanted to lay low tonight and relax so I would not be exhausted for Saturday! :D
