Day 150: Home, Sweet Home

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.

Day 103: Let us thank Him for our food

When I got home yesterday afternoon, this amazing box of fresh, organic produce was waiting at our doorstep. Thanks to Groupon, I got this box from Door to Door Organics for just $13! Now I just have to figure out what I can do with kale. Any suggestions?
