One suspicious receipt

In my cleaning up the house since I've been home, I made a funny discovery -- a certain Target receipt on a certain April 17th, the day I flew home from France. Somebody did some last minute cleaning before my late-night flight landed at Sky Harbor. That's my man. :)

9 years and a day

Nine years and five days ago, Tyler asked me if I would be his girlfriend and I told him no -- that I would not start dating him yet because I didn't want to be distracted during finals week. Luckily he wasn't deterred by what a mega-nerd I was.

Thanks for always humoring me, babe.

Home Sweet Home

Three weeks home and I'm just now posting about it! It's been a busy three weeks (with the photos to show for it) with dentist/doctor appointments, interviews, wedding planning, seeing family and friends, visiting my favorite places, and going back to work. I miss France a lot already but I feel a kind of relief being home, with the bite of my first bagel, my first drive, the first hugs. Who ever knew kissing people on the cheek could feel so much less personal than a hug?

Barcelona... one month late

Soooooooooo these pictures are from a month ago. 

I've been home in Arizona for a couple of weeks now and just haven't had the chance to blog. Oops. 

I went to Barcelona over my birthday weekend/Easter with some of my other language assistant friends. This was my second time in Barcelona and I saw a lot of the same sights but much more in-depth (finally went inside Sagrada Familia). I also got to see family on my birthday -- my cousin happened to be chaperoning a school field trip in Europe -- and it was wonderful! Family, friends, the architecture, the food, the sangria, yum.
