I have a confession

 I am afraid of flying. 

There I admitted it. I am about to hop on a plane to go to one of my favorite places in the next few hours and I am trying not to freak. Did I mention it's a baby one with like 19 rows or something small like that??

I'm not actually scared of being in the plane it's more the taking off part and any time I hear a weird noise. I usually fly 1-2 times a year and it's only been over the past 2 years that I've developed this irrational fear because yes I know I'm safer flying than I am driving to the airport.  Trust me wine and xanax have become my best friends while flying but I still get scared and this time we're going xanax free. 

So bloggy friends if you could good send good vibes and prayers my way that would be great, and pray I make it there without without overdosing on wine to calm my nerves. 

xoxo,
Nat

  3. No worries! I fly at least 2-4 times a year, and it ranges from a large 747 to much smaller.. I've always had an irrational fear of flying, especially during turbulence (don't like take-off either). But I read somewhere that turbulence is just like feeling bumps in the road when you're driving in a car.

    Keeping busy/asleep of course helps, but I also focus on my heartbeat when I get anxious. It helps to almost 'tell yourself' to calm down. Give it a try, and have a fabulous vacation :)

  4. Same here. I rarely fly but always panic when I do. I always get a script for Xanax, which helps a lot.

  5. I once flew from Dallas to Milwaukee on the teeniest little plane ever so I can understand how you feel!

    Just close your eyes and take deep breaths! You'll be fine!

    Good luck and have a safe trip!

  6. I hate hate hate hate flying. I literally whimper during the take off.

    Crossing my fingers for a smooth flight!

  7. Somehow the "you're safer flying than driving" statistic does nothing to calm my nerves when flying. But you'll be fine! Enjoy the wine, take a nap on the flight and when you wake up you'll be on vacation! Good luck!

  9. Hope your trip went well! Sorry I have been so absentee as of late - dealing with work craziness and morning sickness, terrible combo!

  10. OMG! This is exactly how I feel! Thank God I'm not alone in this! Prayers that we both calm down in transit and in the air!
