After a long weekend in California for a friend's wedding, I am glad to be back home and back to normal life. Sometimes I find it disappointing to return home after vacation; back to the grind and hum drum of life. This time, I was more than ready. For one, the three hour time change always gets to me, and we were out late every night with wedding related festivities. Couple that with a turbulent red eye flight back to Michigan and you have the perfect recipe for acute but temporary narcolepsy. I returned Monday morning and had serious concerns about walking and holding Monica at the same time for most of the day. I really thought I was going to keel over from pure exhaustion!
The best part about coming home was seeing Kevin and Monica. I climbed into bed at around 6am when I made it back home. Monica woke up around 7:30 and when Kevin brought her in to the bedroom to see me, her face lit up and she started giggling hysterically. I could not have asked for a better welcome.
I love being a wife and mother! There are times when my brain feels less than exercised, but I wouldn't trade this life for anything. Raising this little one with Kevin is the most awesome responsibility and privilege. Here's to a beautiful life.
(I'll try to post some pictures soon. I forgot my camera, but I'm hoping friends are willing to share!)
