I head back to New Jersey tomorrow. It feels as though my trip went by incredibly fast, but when I look back on all these pictures (I took somewhere around 800) I realize I did so much in the last 3ish weeks. I saw everyone that my heart misses when I'm away from here.
Oh, guess what? My cousin Mercedes, that I told y'all about two posts ago, is flying to Jersey with me tomorrow! She's going to spend a little over two weeks with Mikey and I. This will be the first time she's left Texas and I want her to have a memorable, and perhaps eye-opening experience. It's nice to go away for a while, then come back home and recognize -with almost new eyes- all that you appreciate about where you come from, what makes it special. Having "places visited" under your belt is also something of an accomplishment to look back on and cherish forever. I plan on showing her all my favorite New Jersey towns and of course, "The Big Apple."
I'll be back on a normal posting & reading schedule this week. Have a lovely Tuesday, friends!
