I know that many of you will agree that traveling - whether to a far off exotic land, or just two states away to visit your best friend - is usually a lot of fun.
All of the anxious anticipation starts long before one steps aboard a plane, or gets behind the wheel of a car. The research, planning, buying, and packing is such a large part of what makes going away so much fun. I mean, who doesn't love marking big red X's on a calendar as you count down the days?!
Traveling adds so much to our lives - the new experiences are beautiful opportunities to learn and grow. But don't be fooled by this post so far. This is not as much a post about going away, as it is about coming home. When I am away, no matter how exciting or relaxing my experiences, it is always so comforting to walk through my front door and think," ahhh, home sweet home." In fact, I think sometimes, that may be the best part about going away.
While I wasn't traveling all of these past months, I was away from this blog. Posting again today feels a lot like coming home. Just as each time we return home from traveling we're a little changed from our experiences, I come back here today feeling changed. More relaxed, more focused, a little wiser, and so, so grateful to be back. I once again look forward to sharing this special place on the internet with all of the incredible women here at FOL, and with all of you!
While pondering this post I came across a wonderful quote by author Wendy Wunder:
"The magic thing about home is that it feels good to leave,
and it feels even better to come back."
It's good to be home everyone - it's really good to be home.
