MURICA!! – March-June

Ok ok.. so no blogging.. well we have been busy.  Traveling and eating and visiting and traveling and visiting and eating.. well you get the point.  Whew!! It has been an amazing, overwhelming, fun, lovely and exhausting visit back to the homeland.

12642633_10154654593787538_7971844962443590056_nWe landed end of March in Cali and the first thing we did was eat pancakes! Why you ask? I don’t know.. seemed like the American thing to do.. (I myself had a Cobb Salad that I had been dreaming of over the last few months before we got here.)12718375_10154654593922538_9062567205454162662_n


Oh and we froze.  It was in the 70’s and we were shivering and getting stared at because we were wearing all the warm clothes we could muster while standing next to short and tank top wearing Californians.




So here is a brief blurb of our time home:

California we visited family and spent Easter
