Flying over the Atlantic
Mediterranean Babymoon!

I can't believe this is finally happening. When I was approached with the opportunity to take a cruise in the Mediterranean, I didn't think it would ever be a reality. Through much contemplation, calculating and re-calculating the travel budget, amazing parents and a teary eyed good-bye to our three year old son, we are finally on the plane to Italy.

This is our first trip in 2 years and with another one on the way, we know the babymoon is a needed break! When we wake up tomorrow, we will be in another country. I can't wrap my head around it! We have a lot of flying and maneuvering airports before we will get there however.

We make our connections on time and then get stuck in New York for an hour on the plane. My first thought it ''fix the luggage compartment below us so the door doesn't fly open when we are over the Atlantic Ocean and sink us''. My second thought ''Are you really going to make us sit on the plane when we will already be on here for the next 8 hours?''.

Finally, with the luggage compartment fixed (hopefully), we are flying over the Ocean. I know this is going to be a long flight and being 5 months pregnant is not going to make it easier. I hope there is a good movie. . .
