There’s so much fun in traveling. I love going to a place and seeing what that place has to offer. I just arrived home to Grand Junction from visiting my brother and sister in law, and their kiddos, north of Seattle.
When you are flying people ask “where are you going?” “What is your final destination?” On the way to Seattle I love the question. On the way home it’s a different story. I love visiting my family up north. I see them about every year to year and a half, depending on how my money flow is. And going home gets harder as the kids get older. My niece is 4 1/2 and my nephew 2. My niece is starting to get that auntie comes…and leaves. It’s starting to get harder as we play harder and I find out things like my niece loves running and photography, two passions of mine.
And I sit on the Tarmac in Salt Lake City watching videos she and I made and pictures we took and the tears roll down my cheek. I’m sure I look a little crazy: yoga pants, ball cap and tears but going home is the hardest right now.
Miss these two munchkins, and their parents, a lot right now…and always…
