Home sweet home. Ahhhh. I just flew in and I'm heading to bed - my bed! - but wanted to check in and say that I've missed all my peeps and am really happy to be back home. What a crazy couple of weeks. Tomorrow I have a brief interview in the morning, and then I'm going to relax and unpack and clean. (Who am I kidding? I've already started unpacking and cleaning.)
I'm also going to be hanging out with my sister and BIL tomorrow celebrating my birthday! It's been five years since I've been in the States for a birthday, and at least ten years since I've been able to spend it with family, so this feels great. I don't mind mentioning that 35 was a bit of a rough year, so I'm hopeful that 36 will have good things, and that my heart will be open enough to recognize them all. So everybody gets to eat cake and ice cream on Monday! And pictured is all I want for my birthday. Kanpai!
