*This pic sums up exactly what she’s like when it’s nap time.  She starts taking it out on whatever is closest in reach*

Sometimes I get so stir crazy (physically & mentally) because all I want is to be traveling and seeing the world.  And those moments hit where I feel like I’m drowning in small day to day routines, and I’m missing so much of what’s out there.  But then, I remind myself that everywhere in the world is someplace a person in a distant land would die to see.  So I grabbed Kylie, got out of the house, and we went and explored a nearby garden….more like a wilderness!  This place was huuuuge.  And so peaceful.  It helped me recoup, and remember that I don’t have to be on the other side of the world (although I hope to one day) in order to experience new things, and to see beautiful places.  I honestly think what triggered all of this was The Amazing Race.  Daniel and I have been watching re-runs, and in the episode we watched, they traveled to Portugal.  If you don’t already know, I lived there for 18 months (serving an LDS mission for my church 🙂 )  Every single shot of the city they showed, I recognized.  It was so heart wrenching, and made me so home sick for it 😦

Hope you’re having a wonderful week.  We’ve been getting tons and tons of rain!  The thunder storms are amazing here.  Thanks for reading.
