I’d be lying if I said I was not sad to leave Portland. My friends, family, pregnant sister!! I love so many people back there. Not only was the food amazing, the wine was unbelievable, and the company was out of this world. Laughter all week long! If you can get past the rain, Portland is the best place on earth in my mind. (And yes, I have been to Europe!)
Taylor tried to comfort me on the plane. But all I could think of was how I forgot to get my Mom’s Turkey Soup recipe before we left. Or how I forgot to take a picture of my sister one last time before I see her as a mom. (By the way, she is the most beautiful pregnant person I have ever seen!) I’m already missing my dad, brother, and brother-in-law. We had such a great vacation.
However, as soon as I thought I left my heart in Oregon, I came home to this face:
Yes, Henry was anxiously awaiting our arrival. It was so great seeing him again. He came right out of my in-laws house and jumped up on us. Licking our faces and not stopping for a break! It was great!
He is totally back to his normal self. It feels so great to be home with him. In a few months all the hair from his scar will fill in, and we will totally forget how awful last month was.
We are going to spend the evening hanging out with Henry, eating homemade pizza, and watching tv. A very exciting night at our household!
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend.
We are happy to be home. The apple trees need us this winter (we are pruning) However, I still miss Oregon. I guess you can never be too old to get homesick.
