Sweet, Sweet Home


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!

Thanks everyone! I'm nearly finished packing (it's only taken 7 weeks) and will take off for the airport soon. These well wishes are a nice change of pace from the flying jitters my body is sending me! Love you all. xx

Great that you like to explore exotic locales! As I've lived and been around the whole continental US since early 90's and love it very much, I can assure you, without prejudice: there's no place on earth more exotic than USA!
Have a safe trip, have fun!
