It's Back to the Real World

Slowly easing into reality from the luxury of seven days of...


Where my vantage point above me was...


And the view ahead of me was...


And this amazing person beside me was...


The kids seem real happy to have us home, and a certain two bulldogs didn't quit leaping for about fifteen minutes after we walked in the door. It was a such a nice welcome home.

Jordan had a particularly sweet surprise. While we were gone, he put lights up outside on the house - icicle lights to frame the house, as well as red and green lights on the palm trees. I called him for a few moments when we had phone service in the U.S. Virgin Islands and he said, "Mom, I've got a surprise for you when you come home. You're gonna love it!"

He was right.

Little touches of love and care make easing back into work a lot easier.

I don't even want to look at my initiative list for this week. Can't I put my head in the sand along with where my toes were all week? LOL

Being surrounded by more Christmas lights and beauty at home makes for a joy-filled transition. Well, that and the fact that I choose joy!

Now to attack the list...
