I snapped a few photos earlier this week of the Kansas City skyline from the downtown airport. This is one of my favorites, because a plane was taking off at just the right moment.
Day 1: I am thankful for my parents. Yesterday they returned from a three-week China tour. Aside from two very brief conversations, I had no contact with them, which that was more difficult than I expected. It made me realize how grateful I am for their honesty, advice, help, and unconditional love. I’m so lucky to have two great parents, and I’m very grateful they made it home safely.
After temporarily losing my wedding ring, Jerod’s passport, our luggage, and our insanity – we’re back from our trip to Italy! Besides those emotional incidents, we had a wonderful time. Italy is such a beautiful country! I will post photos in a few days. In the meantime, I have to brag about how great my family is. Our flight home from Chicago was cancelled, so instead of getting in at 7:30 p.m., we arrived at midnight. My parents, sister, and nephew were all patiently waiting for us at the terminal. Best of all – they had done a thorough search at our apartment and found my wedding ring! (My cat had taken off with it and apparently dropped it under a bed the day we left.) They also went grocery shopping and bought us some essentials – including FRUIT! Fruit was in short supply in Italy, and I was craving it by the time I returned home.
