East West, Home's Best

After a 10 hour flight from Frankfurt, plus a 1 1/2 hour ferry ride from Vancouver, I'm home! What a wonderful time I had in Europe with my mom and my sister. There are sure to be lots of pictures to share in the next little while - I hope I don't overwhelm you with them.

This morning I woke up early (4 am) wide awake, so I've been loading my photos onto my computer and putting captions on them before I forget entirely where I was when I took them.

The above photo was taken in Paris - I really like the wrought iron, the windowboxes, the limestone buildings, the shutters, the decorations, etc. Sigh.

And of course...a corner of the Eiffel Tower. The construction makes steel look almost lacey!

I'm so very happy to be home. I have missed my family so much, especially my sweet husband. I'm sure I talked his ear off last night. And today we're celebrating Father's Day! I'll get to see all of my wonderful children.

Welcome back! I know how you feel, it's always so great to come back home! We are leaving today for a week of camping, but at least with camping you get to take your 2nd home with you!

Welcome back Lorri! So glad to hear you had a wonderful time -- we'll be anticipating more photos and stories down the road.

Loved the two photos you posted. Interesting, how steel can look like lace!

Enjoy the day with your loved ones!
