Even though we met a bunch of really awesome people in Ukraine, we missed so very much our friends here in Charlotte.
We spent this weekend catching up with a few couples that we hadn't had a chance to meet up with since we've been back, and it was so, so nice.
I love that we've made a home and an extended family out here. I love game nights and park picnics and laughing so hard that my sides hurt. I love that my kids have friends that they can count on...that Ian can either pick up and chase Emily around in the fall leaves or play Legos with Colin until well after midnight in hushed voices and the occasional shriek of laughter.
Happy to be back :)
