Tomorrow I'm taking off on a 30+ hour flight bound for American soil. I haven't stepped foot inside the good ole' USA in over 16 months and my heart misses it dearly. I plan to spend all of July smothered in barbecue, queso, Target, baby kisses [I finally get to plant my lips on my year old godson!], and lots and lots of late giggly nights around the family table. As much as I love exploring exotic locales, the next few weeks at home with loved ones is all the mojo I'll need to stay inspired. I promise to return refueled and Southern-fied, and I can't think of anything more intoxicating than that. It's going to be a bon, bon voyage for sure. Happy Summer!
