? ? ? Home Sweet Home ? ? ?

It's a funny thing being home. In so many ways it's a huge comfort. Being back in the state, city, and home that has given me so many great memories. Being surrounded by the family and friends that have given my life so much love and happiness. There's something about being home that just gives your heart that warm fuzzy feeling.

It is also strange coming back into my childhood with a bouncing baby boy on my hip. Being away during the pregnancy and early days of little man's life we never got a chance to gradually ease into being a mom around my family. It was amazingly wonderful seeing my child face light up with sheer joy at the sight of my sisters. Watching them with him truly gives my heart happiness it hasn't felt in a very long time. My grandparents,  Little Man's Great-Grandparents are my refuge. They were there for me when my mom couldn't by and seeing him tucked in safely between the two of them puts my restless heart at ease.

I can not wait until we are back here full time. Being able to have them surround him in the love that I grew up in will truly complete this chapter of my life. In the mean time, We are working on cherishing every ounce of Texas that we have left. Making sure to seize the moments that God sends our way.

Now, my friends, it's time for some yummy Dunkin' Donuts Coffee (which you can't get in Texas) and soaking up some NJ sunshine.

Adios Mis Amigos,


  1. I know what you mean - I so miss Virginia. And not just for the Krispy Kreme Donuts...

  2. Dang, that post kinda tugged at the heart strings a bit! Made me feel all warm and fuzzy! Just ran in and gave the kidlet a smooch while she was sleeping....
