every time i come back to school, a little sadness sparks within me.
there's something about home that i just hate to let go of.
i don't know if it's my bed, easy access to an elliptical machine, all of the memories of home, or just all of that colorado-y goodness that gets me the most.
actually, it's these people that get me the most:
after living at home during my nine months of (the worst) illness, i've really hated leaving home.
there's something about spending so much time with the people that i love the most.
at home, i feel so safe and simply... content; when i'm at home with my family, i don't need anything else.
though "home" might be changing soon, it'll really always just be where my family is.
i loved this past week i spent in colorado.
knowing it could be one of our last holidays there made it extra special-- and extra hard to leave.
that, and the craziness i face over the next two and a half weeks, have made coming back to utah a doozy.
for the next little while,
i'll be piled under three presentations, six papers, a move, four shoots, five exams, the planning of a bridal shower, and maaybe a bit of christmas-y spirit in there somewhere.
so again, i apologize for being so absent from the blogosphere as of late.
it'll get better... i promise.
in the meantime, tell me... how were your thanksgiving weekends?!
