Our days in Charlotte passed quickly but they were great.

The rental place only had a convertible so we got to cruise in style.

We spent some time with Billy and Kate and their sweet new baby Rush. We also spent some good time de-briefing with some folks within our organization.

Then, home to Houston.

Our flight got in early so I got to sneak up on Mom while she was ordering at Starbucks.

It was so much more fun carrying all those duffels TO the car rather than FROM the car 2 years ago.

We grabbed some Chic-fil-ay.

We stopped at Gma's.

Then HOME!

It is so beautiful right now! So much green and the temperature is perfect. Texas is welcoming us home.

A big hello to my kitties!

Then it was time to go find some Sandozes.

Driving to their house was the first time I had driven in 2 years. Wow. It didn't feel strange at all either. It felt great.

It was a great afternoon catching up and drinking coffee.

Then all the Pasches came over to celebrate in true Sandoz fashion- a big barbecue! Pork chops, pork loin, sausage! Oh man.

Kenny made us some pinatas to celebrate. We laughed a lot.

It was just so good to be together. Nothing like it.

And then this morning, a HAIRCUT!

I can't describe how awesome it felt to talk in English to the person cutting my hair!

Thanks Chandra! Well worth the 2-year wait.

And now I am doing laundry and watching Nacho Libre with Q.

Things are really really good.
