A Much Needed Trip Back Home

Monday, July 28, 2014
Last night I got maybe an hour of sleep.
I was so frustrated that I got up and paced the kitchen... thinking maybe that would make me tired? 
I don't know. It sounded like a good plan at 3 a.m.
I was just starting to doze off when I heard Hunter's alarm go off.
you have got to be kidding me.
Somehow, I still got into work today right on time.
I had to use all my might not to show up in basketball shorts, slippers, and a t-shirt.
I still wore a not-so-t-shirt-ish t-shirt and sweats.
It took at least 15 minutes for two kids to show up.
It took at least and hour for only two more to show up.
And it then only took an hour more for my boss to tell me I could go home!

I figured this would be a good opportunity to catch up on our trip back home!
I must say, I love that we both have the same hometown.
I truly do not despise Utah. 
In fact, I kinda like it.
Because of that, Hunter and I decided we might actually be able to end up somewhere other than San Diego when we're older and have figured out where we want life to take us.
I mean, if we can have fun and make friends here, we could do that in say, South Carolina... right? (No we are not really thinking about living there, it just kinda came to my mind ha)
Welllll... then we drove into good 'ol San Marcos.
And, my heart felt full.
I could smell the ocean air, palm trees were right out my window, and of course... Jack in the Box!
San Diego is home.
It always will be, even if we do end up somewhere else for unknown reasons at this time. 
But for now, we are enjoying Utah and we are trying to make the most of our adventure in this home away from home :)

Here's some snaps from our visit with family.

All my love,
Aleigh Joy
