Where In The World Have I Been

It feels like I've been away forever.

It happens every year about this time. Winter is just over, 8 days of Passover come calling, and I start to do weird things like forget what day it is and where in the world I am.

Because I have been, literally, all over the world in the past two weeks, hence my absence from my little corner of the internet.

We started off with a week with David's family in Tel Aviv, Israel in a hotel by the ocean, where we woke up to this view every morning.

We flew back late last week on an all night flight and took a two day breather at home before packing up again, getting on another plane, and flying to Ohio to spend the second half of the holiday with my parents, sisters, brothers-in-law, niece and nephew. We got back early this morning, went from the airport straight to work, and have spent the day in a fog of exhaustion laced with the happy haze that comes from spending days with the people we love most.

In a little while I will gather my things and make my way home, where I will almost certainly collapse on the couch and spend the rest of the night catching up on all the TV I missed over the past weeks and ignoring 4 unpacked suitcases and the mountains of laundry that await.

It was a fun spring break, and certainly a Passover for the ages. 

And now. Now, I'm glad to be back, to reclaim my routine that fell by the wayside while I was away, to be back here, writing away.

As spring passes by and summer looms invitingly on the horizon there is lots of fun and excitement coming up. 

I hope you'll be here to join me.


  1. Tel Aviv and Ohio in one spring break trip? Wow, I am impressed. You must be exhausted!

  2. Sounds like a whirlwind vacation!! Now you need a staycation for a few days!

  3. Israel looks so beautiful! Now it's on my bucket list!

  4. Sounds so exciting. We went on a Disney cruise for 4 days, and I still felt the same when I returned. A sigh of relief to return to reality, and a blind eye turned from the suitcases and laundry, and instead a focus on my DVR.

  5. Glad you had such a wonderful adventure! I stayed home, my husband was away and I sent my kid to his grandparents so I could get massive amounts of work done in peace. Not the same as beautiful Tel Aviv, but good for the soul in another sort of way. Welcome back!
