We had a really wonderful trip, jammed packed with family and friends, laughter and love.
I feel incredibly fortunate to enjoy my family so much. It hasn't always been the case. I didn't exactly grow up in a home full of harmony and light (although it was full of love, and I'm grateful for that). I blogged about this last year, and the feelings only deepen as I get older.
I really miss my family. It's the only downside of having moved away. But I'm lucky to have family worth missing.
