The second day, though, was a much different story! :)<br /><br />Kay, you are so sweet and I think California and New York are pretty awesome too.

Alas, we only did New York and California, among other less exotic places. But, girl, I echo your sentiments completely. Letting go is oh so hard, but oh so good.
