I'm coming off of a fantastic extended weekend vacation filled with so many of my favorite things: my wonderfully witty husband, my giggly and loving parents, the city, and far too many indulgently delicious meals.
It's really no surprise to me that the resulting post-vacay weekdays have been extra blah. As wonderful as it is to see our family and friends from home during our precious times of vacation, it feels like such a tease when the visit ends and the reality hits that so many of them live so far away from us. Saying "see you later" is really just no fun at all.
Still, what a blessing to have those moments together when we can. I love being able to show off our home and our Midwest stomping-grounds. The laughs (and calories... yikes!) will certainly sustain us until the holidays.
