Home again.

Saturday 18 July 2015

When I was a child, my mom started this tradition in Bermuda that we take one last swim the morning we leave. I've transferred this to my cousins. I miss the days when they were so little. With sleepy eyes they'd stand patiently while I rubbed sunscreen on their little arms and legs. <3 They're not so small any more, but we still do the swim. I joked this year that it was our 12th Annual Cousin's Swim. :D It's a great tradition. I love swimming out with my eyes open in the salty water and gazing into the deep turquoise. I hold my breath as long as I can and feel the silky water all around me and enjoy the peaceful silence and tranquility. My head rises above water and I have to tear myself from this ocean for another year. 

We had one last breakfast at the Paraquet. 

And were on our way...

Just Greg, Sherry, Maddie, Jack, Preston, and I are leaving today. I said goodbye to Preston in DC, since he was returning to LA. 

Sad Facin Bermuda

My mom picked me up and we headed to Trisha's mom's house for dinner. She made my very very favorite...Hemp's Meats (The local butcher) burgers. Mmmmm. It was so good. 

My mom and I had a lovely evening relaxing and watching the stars come out with Donna, Henry, and Trisha. It was perfect. 

Building a corn hole game at which Trisha OF COURSE kicked my butt

On Sunday, my mom and I traveled up to see Manda, Pat, and my favorite baby. :) Manda and Madeline recently found a little abandoned kitten on a walk. The kitten was too scared to go to Manda, but went right to Madeline and they've been BFFs since. I honestly can't handle the cuteness of it all.

All these pictures were stolen from Manda! 

We had a great afternoon playing with Madeline and chatting with Manda and Pat. 

She loves me ;)
On the way home, we stopped by my Aunt Mary's and made plans to meet later for dinner. From there, my mom and I returned to her house to escape the heat. I went through some old boxes of stuff. :)

This was from 2007. BFFs Forever :D

Back in the day Bermuda
Since Mark and Nikki flew back today, we met them along with my Aunt Mary and Uncle David at our favorite Chinese restaurant. Yum.

My dad had upgraded me to First Class (SO nice) for my flight back to L.A. I'd not flown First Class on United, so it was a new experience for me. I'd have to say that American First Class is a bit nicer. 

I tried to sleep most of the way, but I did witness the one of the most beautiful and fabulous things I've ever was a storm from the plane. The storm was off on the horizon and I could see the entirety of it as it rained down on some city in Kansas. It was every sense of that word. It was a pretty intense storm. I captured it the best I could from my phone, but you can't see the city lights below or the stars up above...which was really the best part. It was so beautiful.

I landed back in LA and got home at 3am. I had to be at work the next day and have only 3 days to prepare for the slew of visitors coming my way on Thursday :) Stay tuned!!
