We got back last night at a little after ten...which felt like eleven since we'd been an hour ahead for most of our travels. Today I'll be attacking the mountains of laundry from our trip, resting up, and slowly sorting through pictures. I'll share pics and thoughts from my trip with you sometime this week.
The kind of odd but slightly nice thing about being away is that we were in this sort of Thanksgiving/wedding bubble, where time seemed to stand still. It was jarring to check my Facebook account on the way home and see all of the Christmas decorations and be reminded that December is here! Of course, normally, I'd be right there with everyone else. Our tree would already be up and I would at least have been thinking about starting Christmas cards. ;) I have a feeling this Christmas season is going to hit me like a truck. This is the time of year where we hit the ground running, to borrow the cliche, and don't stop until well past the 25th.
Still, it was nice to have that time away, to focus on Thanksgiving more than I have for years, and to connect with my husband's family in a deep, meaningful way. The added bonus of attending my nephew's wedding made it even more special.
I can't wait to share more with you, but sadly, the laundry and unpacking beckons. ;) Talk to you guys again soon! :)
Here's a bit of bonus trivia to tide you over while you wait. Can you guess where mini Saige is standing? I'll give you a hint: it's in Wyoming. ;)
