There’s one thing I’ve learned since moving away from home, getting married and thought about starting my own family …. there’s nothing better than coming home.
This past Wednesday – Monday, Luke and I went to visit my hometown of Toledo, Ohio. It had been nearly nine months since I’ve been able to go home and I was severely homesick. It’s just not right for a girl to go that long without seeing her parents, siblings or best friend, right?!
Our time home was absolutely jam packed with events and activities with the people I love, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way. Here’s a rundown of our schedule:
Thursday: My birthday! Lunch with mom. Mud Hens baseball game for my birthday with my parents, best friend & hubs, brother & very pregnant sister-in-law.
Friday: Baby time with my godson and best friend. Surprise birth of my niece (4 weeks early, but healthy as can be). Dinner on the back deck with my parents.
Saturday: Golf with Dad. Beers (for everyone but me) on the patio at my best friend’s house. Our High School reunion (I went to an all-girl’s school). More beers on bff’s patio.
Sunday: Sister-in-law’s baby shower with aunts & cousins. Other bestie’s wedding shower with Chicago friends. First visit with my new niece.
We managed to pack in as much special time with all the people I love in Toledo as possible in four days. It filled my heart and soul up big time in the “people I love” category.
