Florida

I am so glad that my livelihood does not depend on me writing regularly.  I spent two weeks in Florida, and had more than enough time to post,  yet I didn't.

Brent kept Justin in Seattle for the first week, so I was able to spend time with my parents, then they joined me, and the three of us rented a house on the beach for the last week. My Dad didn't feel sick, just weak and tired at times.  We all enjoyed going on walks every night after dinner.














Justin loved finding new places to explore.  He didn't like the beach much, but we found an outdoor pool that he enjoyed.

I'm so thankful for these memories.

Memories

Italy trip

I have been going through my pictures, and have enjoyed looking at this album of Italy. I was able to go over last year to attend a conference. This was the first time I have been back in twenty years. The pictures are made up mostly of places we lived as a family. My brother and I were able to go together, and we were graciously hosted by some friends of ours from language school in Perugia. I feel such a sense of nostalgia when I look at these pictures. I miss Italy so much. It was strange to go back as a tourist knowing I would be returning to the US after such a short time. Tonight I made cookies with Nutella in them, and I remembered how much I enjoyed the simple pleasures. Fortunately, you can find it here! Saturday, we are going up to my brother's house to celebrate a late Thanksgiving, only we will be making homemade tortellini instead of turkey. Happy Thanksgiving!
