The phrase “home is where the heart is” has never been more appropriate than it was the past few weeks, especially upon my return to Perth and Barr last night. I have been a lackluster blogger over the last 3 and a half weeks, but hopefully now that I am no longer on the road (or in the air) I can get back on a regular [blogging] schedule! Thank you to all of my family and friends who made this such a fun few weeks 🙂 And congratulations to the Haverlands and Radants!
So after hopping on the red eye from Perth to Melbourne, I flew back to the states to LAX. Quick Los Angeles visit (most of which was a jet lagged blur, I am sad to report), and then off to Charlotte to catch up with friends and do some last minute wedding prep.
Onward (via car this time) to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina for Bill and Sarah Craig’s wedding:
I stuck around in Hilton Head for a few days with my parents and some of their friends, who came in for a couples golf week – a great time to unwind and see/meet some of my parent’s friends:
From Hilton Head, the golf crew (all 8 of them) plus me headed just an hour south to Savannah, Georgia for some more golf (them) and relaxation (me):
For Memorial Day weekend, the Simpson/Blantons part of the group flew onward to Houston, Texas. My grandparents and sister also came in town for the long weekend 🙂 We caught up with some great friends (old and new) for a Memorial Day BBQ and of course, played with the pups!
After Houston, I flew to Santa Rosa Beach, Florida for the last leg of my trip: Barr’s cousin’s wedding! Kim and Matt’s nuptials were so lovely and their wedding day was such an embodiment of the two of them. And as always, it was great to see my in-laws (this is not a sarcastic comment – I love being with the Blantons! Though Barr was missed by all.) While there was a lot of rain in Santa Rosa Beach that weekend, we managed to have fab weather for the wedding day, and the weekend was a perfect way to cap off the trip to the states:
Thank you for putting up with all these photos (and some of them pretty poor quality at that! The big girl camera did not made it in my luggage this time around) – figured I’d jam everything into one post this time around! Until next time…
