There is NOTHING like it!

During the long months of the baseball season, it's such a blessing to be near my family. Especially now more than ever it makes a huge difference. Not only am I surrounded by help with Abby, but everyone gets to see Abby more than usual. My family was there for many firsts this summer. First steps, some sign language, a few new words and sounds. They were able to see her personality evolve and watch the transformation into a toddler. It's such a special time for us to be together and it's always hard when it's time to say our goodbyes.

However, there is nothing like coming home after being away for so long. Nothing like enjoying a hot bath in your bathtub and sleeping in your own bed. Nothing like catching up with best friends that have been missed so much. There's just something "right" about us living here in Florida, even though we are away from our families and missing them so much.

Needless to say, I've been busy unpacking, grocery shopping, and visiting with friends. Jim gets home tomorrow and we can officially begin our offseason together. Let the moving process begin!! Hopefully sooner than later .... I promise to add some new photos this week. Before I hit the sheets, I've got some work to do for this photography class. :)

That picture you took is so sweet. I love it!
