Vacation is over and it is time to go home. I head back to Charleston today. It was such a great week and really just so nice to have so much time with my family. All ten of us, together in one place. Really just such a gift and so good for the soul! Usually after a week away I am eager to get back to regular life but if I am being honest I am not quite ready to go home… I’d happily stay another week or two if we could. (As long as I could bring Tyrion of course, he stayed home in Charleston and I miss him very much.) I hope you enjoy this week’s links and wish you a wonderful weekend ahead!
