So I know that I’ve been counting down the days and the plan was to arrive on April 24. However, I lied. And it worked. My family never saw it coming but I flew in yesterday to NYC after spending a beautiful week in Haiti. More on that in a future post. Sunday dinners are a typical routine, so I sneakily crept up to the apartment with about 40 pounds of bags and walked right in. Like I said, they never saw it coming. I’m usually very good at spoiling surprises, ask anyone who has ever known me, but this one was a success! Mainly because I got to eat Chinese food. Only kidding.
There are so many thoughts running through my mind right now but more importantly, I’m safe, I didn’t lose my passport, and I haven’t gotten terribly sick. Lots to be thankful for. I’ll still be posting about the remainder of my trip but I wanted to send this brief announcement and let you all know that I’m back home! Thank you for all the support thus far and I look forward to sharing more with you all, including the rest of the “countdown” that just happens to be 2 weeks behind. Now to find a job… 🙂
