Well............... I've finally found the motivation to get back to blogging----> being pestered to death by friends, family, and apparently even fans. Thanks for all the sweet emails and phone calls---- I shall now commit to daily writing.
I have 2.5 weeks left before I fly back to my amazing hubby who is waiting expectantly in Tirana, Albania. We've had extended periods of time in our marriage where we've had to be apart- like when we first moved to Amsterdam and Peter immediately left to work in the Phillipines for 3 months. That was hard, really hard. This time we've been apart for 4 months and though it has been a challenge, I've loved spending time with my parents. It's not a very common opportunity in life. Generally you get married and maybe visit your parents on weekends or summer vacation, but to have 4 months alone with them is a very special gift for me. I have wonderful, huge-hearted parents, and I adore them. If you ever have the chance, stay with your parents for a month or two as an adult. You'll discover a lot about yourself and about them.
