Over the moon...

...with happiness
Home from the Middle East
It happened like this...
*Got home from work Monday @ 1:30-
*Got a text from Justin saying he'll be in New Mexico Tuesday @ noon
*Frankie whipped out his pc to check availability on flts (we fly stand by)
*Frankie- "YOU HAVE TO GO NOW"
*Frankie-"You have to go now to catch a 4:30 flt or you will miss his homecoming."
*Me-packed a suitcase in under 4 minutes (made sure I AT LEAST had eye liner & clean undies) everything else was suitcase surprise-You have to know me to understand what a break through this was! 
Made it from the valley to LAX and to my gate in an hour!
It was like the Red Sea had Parted JUST for me. ANYBODYwho knows the 405 KNOWS what a slight miracle this was. Frankie and Austin came in on a Southwest flt 30 minutes after me.
I gave my Frankie my camera and he snapped away!
Here's proof that everyday miracles DO happen!
I feel like I'm so behind on everything but will play catch up this weekend!
Happy Snapping!
