I Have Arrived!!!

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
