There's a Trip in the Near Future
So I get the envelope and once I see who it's from, it's obvious what it is and all I could hope for is that it is a really early invitation for a mid-July wedding because I have a conference in New Orleans next July so I'll be traveling there on the "company dine" - which is a good thing because coming up with travel expenses will be a bit of a challenge. Turns out, the wedding is in early November and my first reaction is uncertainty, then I did some initial research on air fares and hotels and then became sad because I was sure there was no way I could swing it.
I began making some inquiries and contacting some folks I thought can be helpful and after a few days of scrambling, I am so happy that I will indeed be attending the wedding and spending three nights in New Orleans come early November.
