Home, Sweet Home

I arrived at LAX on Saturday afternoon after a way too long flight with way too much turbulence. I didn't think that I would cry because I had already cried a bit saying goodbye to students and friends, but as soon as I saw my family, I started tearing up. My dad was pressing his face up against the glass that separated us as I finished going through customs and immigration, my sisters were holding signs, and my mom could barely contain her excitement. 
I had quite a lovely welcoming group- my parents, my best friend & her mom, my four sisters, and Ryan (my sister's fiancee). It was just a perfect reunion.

Since coming home, I've gone to a baseball game with my dad and sisters. We (the Angels) didn't win, but it was a fun game!

I've eaten some delicious food. It helps to have a father who works in the restaurant business, can you even handle how delicious this breakfast looks? I could die. 

I've reunited with some incredible friends, like Katie. Katie (who I've known since she was born) is going to move to Thailand to teach English. I'm excited to be able to support her and encourage her through her experience! 

And last, but not least, I've soaked up the beautiful California weather and scenery. Gosh, I just love my home.
