Back Home

We had such an outstanding trip! I would like to say that it's great to be home, but I love traveling and every part of our trip was incredible so it makes coming home a bit harder. Over the next few postings I will be sharing photos and stories about our travels in Lebanon and Jordan. After a two week vacation, it going to be hard to go back to work but sharing stories about places we visited will help the memories linger.

Yesterday we spent a day putting away Christmas decorations, unpacking. washing and trying to get the house in order for the work week. Having visited a number of homes on our travels, I am inspired to do some de-cluttering and plan to start my spring cleaning a little earlier this year. The week before Christmas we had some book cases and a window seat added to our bedroom. Finally there will be one place in which to put my books. The bookcases are still being painted but once they're finished I'll share some photos. Since I was a small girl, I have always dreamed of spending a day sitting and reading in a window seat.

Now that I am home I am working hard to get grounded and back into the swing of things but I have to admit that I am already planning, daydreaming and thinking of another trip. Don't know when or where it will be but wherever it is - I can't wait.


  1. Welcome back! I can't wait to hear all about your trip...

  2. Many wishes for a happy new year!
    Thinking of trips, I hope you're still planning a visit to the NW. It's finally warmer and today happy coffee drinkers were to be seen at all our sidewalk cafés in my neighborhood.
    I second the wish for reports on your trip.
    Welcome back!

  3. Welcome back JoJo!

    I've alwasy wanted a window seat surrounded by bookcases also :-) Glad you were able to make your dream come true!
