Seven Months Till Saipan

I chose March as the month to leave for Saipan because I would have the most vacation time then and TJ will still be young enough that I don’t have to pay full fare. And I will still be of the naive idea that it’ll be okay to ferry a squirmy, needy child across the Pacific on my lap.

That hasn’t tempered my excitement at all, especially after seeing these gorgeous Saipan sunset photos on my Auntie Gloria’s facebook page. I asked her if I could share them here because hello, gorgeous.

Seven months from today I’ll be boarding that plane that will take me back. Seven months of waiting through Seattle rain, wind and more rain until I get to see this, a sight that was so normal growing up. This was normal to me.

I can’t wait to see this again, breathing in the salty air and wondering where my child wandered off to because I was too busy gawking at this:

  1. I’m so excited you’ll get to go home, Mona! I understand homesickness…..and I always thought VT was far from here, but then reading how many planes you’ll have to hop to get back to Saipan…damn girl!! It’ll be worth it though.

  2. Can’t wait to see you! I mean, I know you’ll be busy with family and everything, but we get to hang out right? Right?!

    The sunsets have been exceptionally beautiful lately. I will post some pictures soon. Gorgeous pinks and reds from my balcony.

  3. Sooooo jealous! Not of the plane ride or the squirmy-baby-on-your-lap part so much, but for the sunset. ORANGE!!

  5. Seven months would be a long wait, especially with a beautiful reminder like this. I am happy for you to have such great memories of your childhood. I know the excitement of coming back into a place where you had so many wonderful memories. In 7 months you’ll breathe the same salty air again.
