The Good Things

So I don't have a lot of time to really dive deep into the end of the trip. Sardegna (Sardinia) was very relaxed and the beaches were beautiful.

Barcelona was a highlight of the trip. Anca from Romania met us there and we absolutely had a blast being tourists around the city. The Ramblas was incredible, the Gaudi architecture mind boggling and inspiring and the, the gothic/barceloneta vast and intense with every step. I loved Barcelona.

Then a night in the airport, a day flight back, and in a couple short hours I was back in the airport with flowers waiting for Sydney to get back from hawaii. I got to meet her family briefly and spend time with her mom and grandma over lunch today. We spent all afternoon lying in the sun and just finally being together after all the time apart and waiting.

I am so happy right now I can't even describe it!

Tomorrow I'm going to take all my belongings to our new house (me and my brother hal). There we will work on making a new home. I really can't wait just to just spend time building a little Tacoma nest, doing chores, running errands and being a normal person for a while, no backpacks, no international cell phones, just a little life enjoying the good things

And that is what I'm going to call this blog from now on. I know its a big change, and I don't want you to be scared, but its time for a change and change is good.

This blog will be dedicated to sharing the good things in life, like long kisses, and live music, and places to visit and things to do and people who make it all worth while.

People like you.

So I'm back. And that is a good thing.

Welcome home. Just in case your nesting in Tacoma keeps you from getting away to your other July 4h options, you're welcome to come to the Salmon Beach celebration. Scott & I are planning to throw open Cabin 56 to all those we hold dear. We'll stock plenty of burgers & beer. Rowboat races start at noon. We'd love to meet Syd (couldn't be more thrilled for you). By the way, I like your change - gotta start a new chapter to keep the story engaging. Rhonda Higgins

I absolutely LOVED Barcelona when I was there too! I have fond memories of that city (and of the hot italian guy that I met there).

Cant wait to read all "The Good Things"!
