So I can't seem to keep away from the parties. I just can't help it, I love helping out and planning parties. This is just a sneak peak of the stuff we are brewing up for cousin Krista's house warming party. I don't really love it but I am glad I got to use my Crop a Dile again for it.
Anywhoo, on Friday I helped her move into her new little space and I was so excited and just happy happy happy for her. I love her new condo! In all my happiness, I also got homesick and it kind of put me in this funk. I just keep daydreaming about my home and missing it terribly.
I miss being able to stay home in my pj's all day. I miss Cindy's huge play area. I miss my heated floors. I miss the small town life where we can walk right outside our house, up the hill, and see this [as you can see I was not appreciating that uphill walk].
I just miss HOME. Sometimes when I say that, people get a puzzled look as though my home is California. They don't realize that my little family of three, we have built a whole life for ourselves in Germany. We have a place we call home...our home sweet home. I live a completely different life out there, one void of freeways, Target, and endless busy-ness. In Germany I am a homemaker and I wouldn't want it any other way.
Don't get me wrong, I am eternally grateful to my in laws for giving us a temporary place to stay and
taking care of all of our needs. I have had so much fun spending money and time with family and friends and truly appreciate their support.
It has been a nice trip, but now more than ever I know it is time for Cindy and I to go home. It is time for us to be a family again.
