Home, Sweet Home

July 24, 2008

We arrived home last night. Well, at least to the apartment-home, which is still in Austin and so feels like home.

I never imagined that home would be somewhere else than California, but I’ve never felt more at home in a place than I do here. I am so happy to know that we will be raising our child(ren?) in a city that we decided, on our own (with no outside influences), to live in. There’s just something freeing about that to me.

Even though I am so happy to be home, the trip to California was a lot of fun (at least for a few mishaps, which I will talk about later). The best part, no contest, was seeing our family. I only got to see my mom and best friend for the baby shower, but I am grateful I even saw them at all, considering they both had to travel a distance to get to where we were staying.

We did everything I wanted to do, too! We saw Batman: The Dark Knight (a masterpiece – go see it!), we went to Sequoia National Park (started out rough, but ended well – details later) and, of course, we had my baby shower (details and photos for another post!). We even threw in a game of miniature golf, which was a whole lot of fun!

As soon as I get unpacked and get the photos uploaded, I will set about posting the details of both the baby shower and visit to Sequoia National Park. I also plan to catch-up on everything going on with all of you, as I feel like I’ve missed so much already!

I’m glad you like Austin so far. I’ve lived in Texas for about 2 years now and have to say it isn’t too bad. It just gets a little tiring during the long, hot, summers.

Welcome back! I’m glad your trip home was good, and that you’re glad to be back home in Texas, too. 🙂

Hey… found your blog through ICLW…

Sounds like we have many of the same interests, including being an animal-lover. I wish you much joy and love with your new baby.

I clicked over your way by Adoptic, and I had to comment and say that you are an absolutely beautiful pregnant woman! I look forward to reading more.
