Back to Reality with renewed Vitality

I’m going to try to keep this short and sweet because, otherwise, I’ll start looking at the pictures, reading past posts, and reminiscing, which would mean I’d be here in front of my computer all day and night.

As reluctantly as I have been re-assimilating into life back in the States, I realized I had the most joyous 4 weeks of my life with this CR5 family and brought back way more than memories, souvenirs, and lots of pictures, and that’s saying something! Rather, I learned countless life lessons and I feel…well, different, in a good way. I think I’m just happier than I have ever been in my life right now. I’ve never even been to Europe before this trip, and, now, I get to say I’ve witnessed so many of the things we used to only read about in textbooks! Honestly, it’s still mind-boggling to me. I can’t wait to see more of this beautiful world.

But, I could not be more grateful. I know I’m late, but I just want to say thank you. Thank you, dear reader. Over 40,000 hits and counting, that’s incredible! Thank you, Dr. Pitcock, Colby, and Jenny, for spending your time with us on thistrip, and teaching me so much. Thank you, Mom and Dad, for making this all possible. I’m truly blessed to have had this opportunity. Finally, thank you to my new family, CR5. I love and miss each and every one of y’all. We had the time of our lives, but it wouldn’t have been half that without each other. Counting down the days until we are reunited again…
