Home Sweet Home

A lot of memories in this beautiful house!!  So nice to be home.
Coming home after being gone for nine months is a...whirlwind!  So many people to see, so many things to do; wedding preparation, shopping trips, dining out, meeting friends, and spending time with family are keeping us BUSY.

It's funny, a friend asked me what it is like to be home, insinuating that it might be a difficult adjustment, and after a pause to think I answered that it was "natural".  Because it is.  Despite what some might think, coming back to the "land of plenty" for a visit is not as jarring as it might seem.  My family is very, very close - and when we all get together - it's like no time has passed.  We dive right into the crazy, beautiful, mad-love mayhem that is our home and it is so, so wonderful.

I believe that true relationships are the ones that time cannot tarnish.  They are the ones that, no matter what, it's as if no time has passed.  Relationships like those are the ones that make a visit home nothing short of lovely.  Seeing my best friend of 25 years is as effortless as putting on shoes.  We just pick up where we left off and the hands of time only bring us closer.  Last night for example - I went out with three very dear friends who I have not seen in over a year.  The minute we sat down (after hugs and squeals and oh my gosh you look so lovely's) we did not stop talking for a solid 3.5 hours as if no time had passed.  That sort of closeness and connectedness is a gift.  Friendships like that make the whirlwind more like a super-fun carnival ride that you never want to end.

Not to mention we are enjoying a bed with a pillow top, air conditioning, refrigeration, spas, salons, restaurants and all the other perks and conveniences that this land life affords.  It takes about .2 seconds for us to slip right back into it, of course now we appreciate it all that much more...

The only difficult part about being home is trying to fit everything in!  We have so many friends we want to see and only so many days; it's going to be challenging to squeeze everything and everyone in. Phones are ringing, plans are being made, dates are getting set and our social calendar is booking up!  I guess that's a pretty good problem to have...

Don't worry about the social calendar. You are with those you love, and those you love are with you. You will see everyone in good time, and ... it will work out. Always a good time! :) Enjoy!!
