Back Home

We are back!
Disclaimer:: This will be a very photo-heavy post, as well as a bit word-light. Totally photo album style!

A. Month. Long. Holiday. 

As much as I hate to admit, Jake was right, it did have to be at least a month who could we cut!?  Honestly, it didn't feel like enough time in any one place (hey family if you could all huddle closer that would be amazing thanks!) and there were tons of folks we didn't even have time to see(we move to the states, more than likely, in two years y'all!) and not for lack of want. Our first time home in 5 years  had to be prioritised, the kid's socialising reserves carefully considered (SINGS::Its introvert parenting, where they have a set time limit on peopling!). We knew we would be overtaxing them but HOW much was the question(our calculations were crap BTW and we had to cancel the last week of planned things due to zombieness and tears, theirs and mine...). Like in most aspects of our lives "We did our best and B*llSh*t the rest" (that needs to be a T-shirt!). 

So this is where we come out, with full hearts, ready to move forward in our lives adventure.

there are lots of pictures that I didn't post, mostly these are the ones that I had on my camera, my Insta and FB had some different ones, but I thought this wasn't nessirily going to capture my whole trip. If I'm honest I didn't capture everything in photos, my heart was fully present in the moment, and there are so many beautiful memories and precious people I didn't take pictures of because I was so excited to BE with them I didn't think to pull out a camera or a phone. This trip was so special to me, we really loved the time we spent with our people, we have a new excitement that we didn't have about eventually moving home that we didn't have before, we are so excited to see our people again and get to see them more regularly and grow WITH our tribe.
Thank you for loving us so well.
