Going on an adventure!!

Tomorrow I head across the country, by plane, to my parents house!! This is also where I grew up so as I’m thinking about my trip I am reminiscing about all the amazing memories that were made there! I have not been back home for Christmas since 2011! That is far too long!

My husband is not able to come because he has finals, for his masters, that are due on the 24th! Ridiculous! I am sad he isn’t coming. I am also a little bit anxious because he is my rock and support during our travels. Plus I will miss him at Christmas. I will be back day after so we can celebrate it then 🙂

I will keep you posted on my progress tomorrow, and update you on my anxiety. I am hopeful I can keep it under check!

A House isn’t a Home without a Family

I have been living here in Arizona for 3 years, and when I first moved here I was completely alone! When I moved, my family drove me out here and helped me move in, but they went back after I was settled. Moving here has been an amazing experience and I wouldn’t trade it for the world, since there is where I met my husband and started my career as an educator. However, during those first few years it was beyond difficult to be here without my family. I had a roommate, but it wasn’t the same thing. There wasn’t someone who loves me for who I am, or no one who could put up with my quirks quite the way my parents could. HA!

However, now that I have been married for just over a year and half, and it all feels wonderfully full! My home is now overflowing with love and my favorite part of the day is when I come home and can snuggle with my dogs and with my husband!
