We’ve been home from our big road trip for a few days now (a week at the time this publishes) and it has been both weird and good, often at the same time. As much as I love travel and all the experiences it brings and the many homes we got to visit, there is something special about puttering in my own kitchen and lingering over coffee with a favourite mug.
We’re nearly unpacked and caught up on laundry, our fridge sports some new magnets (one of the few things we collect when we travel) and our book collection has grown. There are literally hundreds of pictures to go through, culling them and selecting the ones we want to save, and I have no idea where to start.
There’s also the processing, the unpacking of all the changes that happened, the conversations we had and the growth that happened in all four of us.
I’m finding it harder then I thought to just jump back into life as it was because, well, life isn’t the same as it was when we left. We’ve had some decisions to make about the future- changes with work and school, a possible move – issues that aren’t easy to resolve overnight or when you’re on the road for weeks at a time.
I’ll still be on my quasi summer break- posting when I can between all the real life that’s happening offline. We’ve got one more trip ahead of us and then we’re staying put for awhile.
The wading pool is filled up in the backyard, coffee is had on the back porch, and my big girl learned how to ride a bike over the weekend! We’ve got friends to catch up with and gorgeous summer produce to enjoy.
I’ve got one more summer travel post planned and then I’ll focus on other content for the fall (and I’ve got lots of great topics I want to share and discuss with you!) so if you have any burning questions about our trip, please ask away! Also, if you have any other questions or topics you’d like to see in this space, please share them!
Tell me about your weekend- what moments are you taking into the week with you?
