I am HOME!!! ST and I made the 11-hour trek to my hometown yesterday and it has already been just what the doctor ordered. My sweet parents stayed up late to welcome us home, I got to meet the newest pup in the fam (Ben Rufflisberger, the Airedale, is GARGANTUAN at only 3.5 months old), nosh on my favorite breakfast burrito with my Pops at Leal's, and drop in at to see my favorite girls at one of our go-to lunch spots today. It was heavenly to be able to sleep in the house I grew up in, window open, breeze whipping the curtains, snuggled up next to my favorite guy in the world, my pup at our feet... and then wake up to hang out with my parents and best friends.
It's like, i knew I felt a little drained from my routine, but I didn't really pick up on how much it was affecting me until I was here and could just exhale. We have a few things planned, like meeting my new baby niece, Emma, tonight, welcoming my brother and SIL to their new house, service at my old church Sunday, but mainly just relaxing. I wish we could stay longer... but until we head out Monday, I'll be soaking up every single ounce of Texas I can!!
