Cha Cha Chaboom.

January 4, 2010

my trip to the southern part of the hemisphere was the vacation of a lifetime;
(even with the sunburn, flu, ear infection, and hanging out in a hotel room - while in paradise - reading for 3 days)

the pictures above literally capture what my life looked like for two weeks,
and i started to miss it by the time i took my seat on the plane.

the one good thing about landing back in freezing cold
(with freezing snow) utah,
was the fact that even though i had to say goodbye to a
part of my family in new zealand,
i was welcomed home with my second family among friends,
who made a wonderful welcome home dinner.
(sara, i even liked the lasagna, i promise)
& this was definitely a blessing in disguise considering the only items in our fridge were a few pickles and an empty carton of milk.

and as for the first few days of twenty-ten,
is it just me or do things just feel different?
something great is going to happen this year -
i just know it!

ps. cha cha chaboom is something i heard in a song tonight.
and i really loved the song.

Are you from New Zealand? Or is your family there? I'm confused. BUT it looks like a fantastic vacation and I'm so glad for you to have experienced it!

Michelle said...

sounds like you went through a lot while you were there (ear infection, flu, etc)! At least you had the comfort of such a beautiful place outside your window! I definitely need to visit New Zealand soon...
