Not gonna lie. The entry back into Europe from Thailand was shocking.

I rocked purple socks and Chacos the whole way home :)

The past few weeks have flown by in sometimes fun, sometimes anxiety-filled gusts. This whole less-than-3 weeks left business is intense.

There are a lot of official "moving" tasks and then just a lot of emotions too. Two years is a long time in some ways. Long enough for a life to be built. And even though Texas is still most certainly "home," "home" has also somehow become where we now sit.

I am trying to embrace the ups and downs of this transition. It is what it is.

And right now, it's spending as much time with our friends here as we can.

Nada and the kids came over a few days after we got home from our trip and Clay and Nagham watched some cartoons.

And just this past weekend, we celebrated Mazen's 1st birthday with the family.

The birthday boy didn't quite know what to think of silly string.

Present time!

Yay! I love this boy.

We love this family and will miss them so much.
