I'm baaa-aaack.

After a 10 week hiatus, I'm back. 

And, for those of you who haven't completely given up on checking for updates, I have 30+ blog posts to catch up on, but I'm determined to do it.

It has been a whirlwind two and a half months with lots of family, friends and traveling. In a matter of five weeks, I packed and unpacked 20 different times, sleeping in a total of 16 different beds. I traveled a minimum of 10,894 miles, and that doesn't include in-town driving, of which there was a lot.

It was a wonderful and stressful and carefree and busy and tiring and relaxing vacation, but honestly we couldn't be happier to be in our own beds, cooking our own meals and driving our own cars. {Yes, that is carS, plural. More on that later.}

Ryan starts work in a few days and Miss Ribbons starts school a few days after that. After I play catch up, Kate and I will try to find things to fill our days. I have a feeling it won't take long. 

So yes, I'm back. We are now officially mid-westerners and can't wait to see what the heart of America has to offer.
