home sweet home

We're home! And, oh how good it feels. Don't get me wrong... I love being on vacation... in fact, I already miss it... but there is something that is so comforting and exciting to be back with my husband in our little house, with our wonderful friends, growing our babies plants big and strong, doing our stuff. I used to dread coming home from vacation but now it's nice. I like how perfectly imperfect our lives together are. It makes me smile.

But the vacay is over and it's official, I have gained what feels like 25 pounds, a massive sweet tooth and lack of self control. Ten days of eating tons of things I don’t normally eat {icecream, baked goods, butter, etc} and quantities I don’t normally eat {sure I’ll have thirds} does that to you.  Now I've just got to figure out how to kick the sweet tooth and get back to normal, yummy, veggie eating {as I sit here eating icecream and a half eaten supersized blow pop}.

California was awesome. I wish I would have had time to blog while we were there because now I feel like I have too much to tell but I didn’t… so I’ll have to give you some recaps...

that is after I go through and edit the ..oh... 1000+ pics we took...

Here are a few to tide you over until then!
