I figure while we’re back in the US is as good a time as any to share a few photos from last year’s trip back home! It was a whirlwind trip, as always, splitting our time between both Nashville and Memphis. We only stayed a week and a half, but somehow we managed to pack an entire month’s worth of activity in.
With no time for jet lag, we hit the ground running in Nashville as soon as we landed. Three days of visiting friends, new babies, our old pets, other people’s pets, and covering a seemingly endless list of to-do’s and doctor appointments and then we were off to Memphis for a week. Seven more days of visiting friends, new babies, lots of family time, ridiculous amounts of food, and one surprise 90th birthday celebration later and we were back on the road to Nashville to catch our flight back to London. Whew. I get exhausted just trying to remember how we managed to do everything we did! (The answer is no sleeping, and only stopping for a shower when deodorant and dry shampoo no longer cut it. I’m really not joking.)
I’m keeping it short and sweet today, because as I write this (two weeks before you’re reading it now), we have just two days left before we move out of our flat and I have done nothing, I mean nothing to prepare for that. The situation has become critical (or in the words of one of my favorite singers from back home – the fits about to hit the shan!) and as much as I’d like to tell a few stories behind these photos, I have got to start packing the suitcases we’re going to be living out of for the next 7-8 weeks or I’m going to regret it once we get to Singapore and realize everything we need is on a ship somewhere in the middle of the ocean! Please accept my sincere apologies for such a hastily written few paragraphs and enjoy these snapshots from home instead. They’re a bit of a hodge podge, some taken with intent and others quickly snapped with my iPhone, but I love each and every one of them.
I’ll catch you all again when we’re settled into our temporary place in Singapore. Hope you’re all enjoying your summer!
Two arms around me, heaven to ground me,
and a family that always calls me home.
Four wheels to get there, enough love to share,
and a sweet sweet sweet song.
At the end of the day, Lord I pray,
I have a life that’s good.
