Over my school break I was able to go home to Colorado for the first time in almost a year and a half. Ryan’s vacation schedule is a fraction of mine, so Ryan and Roo stayed behind in Korea.I hate the long flight and was crazy to agree to getting to Colorado after 19 hours of travel then promptly driving to Indiana (an 18 hour drive) to see family there. However my brother ended up not being able to get off work which gave me one day of recovery. Even through a jet-lagged fog, it was wonderful to get a day to spend in Colorado catching up with Carissa and Ryan’s family before heading to Indiana.
In Indiana, I had a measly four days to catch up with family, but got to see everyone and squeeze in a few yoga classes in between. The highlight of the party was of course the babies, my second cousins.
All the baby-holding led to at least seven people forbidding Ryan and me to have babies while abroad. Opinions, opinions.
After a short visit, I flew back to Colorado to catch a bachelorette and engagement party for Elaine. She doesn’t get married til May, but we squeezed in all the parties while she was in Colorado visiting her fiance’s family so we could all go.
