Tell us about the last thing you got excited about — butterflies-in-the-stomach, giggling, can’t-wait excited

I haven’t been super excited about anything much over the past few years.  I always seem to be bumbling along, trying to figure life out.  A few months back though, my family and myself were invited to visit family in Germany.  At first I didn’t think much of it, I didn’t even mention it here until the very last few days. I did everything I was supposed to do like organising the visas and luggage, but I seemed to do all that rather mechanically, and was not really affected emotionally yet.  About three days before the time though, much to my surprise, I couldn’t contain myself I was so excited.  All in all it turned out to be an absolutely lovely visit.  We ended up visiting more than just Germany, and I am grateful to have had the experience.
