Home & Home

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind. It’s been a long hiatus from the blog, but I’ll try to recap with a few pics.

My little baby brother turned 18! WHOA! How did that happen? Nate and I took him to the casino to lose a few bucks. I made him a cake (and enjoyed some Two Hearted, obviously).

17 years ago, I was reading this uncle his bedtime stories. 🙂

Ben had a wonderful time at his Nana & Papa’s (and his Grammy’s too). He stayed busy doing all his usual stuff (opening/closing cabinets, manning the remotes, hanging w/ furry friends…) and some new stuff too (playing musical instruments–xylophone, guitar, piano, etc., almost walking!, developing a chronic hilarious fake cough/laugh…).


We took a quick trip down to Island Park. Ben had fun w/ Auntie Loren, Uncle Nate, & Nana. It was actually his first swing & slide experience, since we don’t have any walkable parks here in B’More.

He thinks he is pretty cool…

This morning we had to be in the car by 5am to head to the airport to fly back to B’more. This is what 5am looked like. It was hard to interrupt such a cute sleeper.

It was so great to be home, but it is so great to be home.

Seriously… I say home in both respects with such sincerity. (When does the definition of “home” officially become just one place? Does it ever? I hope not…)

Benjamin hadn’t seen his Daddy in TWO WEEKS! Seeing them hang out all day was simply the best.


Seeing Toby & Ben reunite was a close second.

And it was great to finally have a spouse again. 🙂 John had the apartment sparkling and a lovely bunch of flowers, wine & card waiting. What a sweet husband!
