We are baaack. And it feels so good to be home. After a long trip, my favorite thing in the world to do is pulling into our garage, swinging open the front door and smelling our own house. Then I run upstairs and I wait for McKay to haul up our suitcases. Then I unzip them and hurriedly empty out the contents and zip them back up and send them on their way back to the garage. And then I feel home. Currently, all our stuff is laying on our bed un-put-away, but that's okay because there usually really is a huge, unfolded pile of clothes laying on our bed- and as long as it's on our bed and not on the floor, it feels clean. And it is. Because it's not on the floor.
Anywaysss, Boise was lots of fun. We got some family updates and ate lots of food and shopped. And shopped. and shopped. And we got Kneaders- at which I savored every single bite and McKay even said "This is like...my favorite...breakfast...ever." And also we went to Anthropologie- which was detrimental and might have enforced our bank's "Overdraft Protection" capabilities to our checking account- to which I had left the precise amount we would need for Thanksgiving in Boise- which turned out to be underestimated.
But on an un-superficial note, the trip was great. The highlight for me, was spending time at McKay's grandpa's house, which is always one of my favorite things we do there. We walked around and looked at pictures of McKay's grandma and talked and listened to stories. And I got some perspective- if you know what I mean- about what's really is important.
and today is my brother Cody's birthday!
Right now, he is in New York, serving a mission for our church.
And I hope he knows how much I love and miss him!
