We arrived back home late last night from our 2.5 week vacation back in the South. It is no exaggeration to say we cherished every moment with our family, friends, home climate and culture. We are so thankful for having the opportunity to fly across the country and spend that kind of time.
I feel very refreshed, which is good, because I came back to a place and time for figuring some stuff out. It's good to come back with a cleared head. For now, with school officially out, I plan to just putz around my house putting things back in order post-vaca. I have the tremendous privilege of planning for my dear sweet friends who are coming to visit starting the 4th of July. We are so excited to have all four of this precious family under our Oregon roof for a few days!
And now it's time for me to walk my pup. I think he's emotionally spent from our going and coming, but it sure is good to see him again. I so enjoyed feeling the sun on my bare shoulders back in the South, but the prospect of walking on dewey ground with sunlight spilling through the massive evergreens with my dog at my side, even while wearing a sweater (sigh) doesn't sound too bad, either. ;>
