home is where our story begins.

There is always something nice about coming home. Even though travel can be exciting and full of adventure....coming home fills me with a sense of calm. But it was different this time. Normally, when I come home from a vacation, I walk up the front steps of my parents house. Then go up to my bedroom and close the door - grateful to be back in my own sanctuary. It isn't like that anymore. This was the first time that I came home from a vacation and wound up back at our apartment. It was a strange, beautiful, and scary moment.

I have been married for a week and a half. Everything feels very new and different. Everything is an adjustment. Don't get me wrong. Thus far, married life has been exciting. It has been downright blissful, in fact! But it has been a change. And I think it will take me a while to adjust to this new life.

So! If you couldn't tell...I am back from my honeymoon. My husband (wow, that feels strange to write!) and I got in yesterday evening. Disney was amaaaaazing. We had so much fun! I will definitely update you all on that in the days to come. Promise. Since our return, the hubby and I have been catching up on sleep, checking emails, and talking to family. Despite my best efforts, I wasn't able to stay in vacation mode for too long. Real life has been beckoning!

Yes, I am in the midst of playing catch up. So expect me to pop in on your blogs over the next couple of days. Thank you again for all of your kind words and comments. They have been so nice to come home to!

How have you been spending your time lately? Will you do any travelling this summer?

  1. I feel the exact same way, and there's something nice about knowing you have a place to come home to as well. Congrats on your marriage!!! I wish you all the happiness and love in the world for you and your hubby!
    I'll actually be going to Sacramento, CA this weekend with my boyfriend, his favorite soccer team from England is visiting and playing in the states! And hopefully a couple more trips before the summer is over!
