Bon Voyage Dinner!

I'm going to miss Waggers, please stop by my house and give her food on your free time!
Hey All,
I can't believe it.  Two days away from my six month adventure of Europe.  I'll be leaving for New York City early in the morning on Saturday the 8th (the weather channel calls for snow...keep your fingers crossed that it isn't too bad!).  My flight is scheduled to lift of from JFK at 10:30 USA time. I'm really starting to get excited, but I'm also realizing that I might need to pack soon!

Yesterday night my family and I (along with Kenny and Elizabeth) were treated by Tom S. and Rosalind P. to a meal (more like 7 meals) cooked by a celebrity chef, Jerry.  We ate some amazing things ranging from trotter, panettone, salmon and risotto, beef wellington, amazing mashed potatoes, potato cakes and salmon, it was an amazing night with great food and great company.

Now that the celebrating is over, I'm left to a few more good byes and a few more stops in Mansfield before I leave for a long time. This point reminds me a lot of when I left for DC back in the summer of 2009 for my internship with Congressman Joe Courtney.  I'm not really nervous like I was back then, but I still have the same sense of excitement and adventure.  I'm really excited to live in a new culture and meet lots of new people.  I'm also excited to test out some of the European appletinis! 

This will most likely be my last blog while I'm here in America, so for now, good bye America.  I would say I'm leaving because the 112th Congress is being sworn in and I just don't know if I can handle John Boehner crying all the time, but in reality whether it was a democratic majority or what we have now, I'm ready to go for a bit.  But I'll be back, again.

Me and Jerry (the celebrity chef), he is awesome. I'm definitely not gonna be fed nearly as well in England (well maybe when I visit Brian and June!)

I guess I'm going to miss my brother.
