Homeward Bound

Our three weeks back in the states have passed like a whirlwind. Tomorrow morning we board the airplane home and it's back to real life once again. No more playing with cousins, drinking rootbeer, shopping at Target, or sleeping in. While here we did much celebrating.

There was a 30th birthday:IMG_6488

And a wedding:IMG_0290

And I learned that my mom makes Christmas eve magical, my mother-in-law makes an amazing Yorkshire pudding, I love cheese fondue, parking stalls here are huge, I prefer driving in England, I wish I had set aside more time to visit friends, I can get by on very little sleep, I have the most amazing family in the world, and Apple Jacks with cream taste just as good as they always have.

So glad you were able to go home for the holidays. Sounds like it was a wonderful trip. Love seeing pictures of those mountains! Have a safe flight back...

Yay!!! So fun to see you and your cute family!

Really? You prefer driving in England? I was really bad at it.

I'm eating a Fruit Pastille right now.;)

Love ya!

looks like you had a very full visit! Safe travels back to England.

and I'm curious - why do you prefer driving in England?

Bunsy said...

Yay! I'm so glad you guys made the trip. It can really re-energize you and give you strength to hold out the rest of the year. Not that the best is yet to come. I know London has tons more to offer you once you get settled in again. Blessings to you guys in the new year!

I am so glad I got to see you guys before you left and I can't wait to see you when you come back for a summer "Holiday". Love you all!

I can't believe you survived all that! You are a busy girl :) I love all your pics from london, it looks sooo fun to live somewhere different like that. I would love to come visit you there, but we'll see if that happens or not :)
