our stuff is on its way. in 36 hours or so, we'll be on our way. its a little intense. but really, really great. the next day and a half are going to be a bit of a whirlwind. you probably won't hear from me for a bit. so, i leave you with this picture of shawn & i at our going away party the last time we left chicago. it was so much easier then. but just as great.
