Admittedly, the past month has been less than inspirational for me. After waking up every morning for three months to new scenes, new experiences, new foods, and new people, the familiar seemed dull.

But now that I'm finally getting back in the swing of things, I'm remembering all the things I've always cherished -- my favorite coffee shop, afternoons spent on porches, indoor taco picnics, going to the movies twice in one day. And all of these things while being surrounded by people that can make you laugh until you cry is simply invaluable. I'm happy to be home.
