The last few weeks I've been guilty of carrying around an irritable mood - a bad attitude that's been an impediment to my day-to-day tasks. It wasn't until I sat down tonight and looked at my calendar that I realized the root of it all.
It wasn't the workload, it wasn't stress, it wasn't my spouse, it wasn't even Grenada...
It was homesickness.
Exactly one year ago today I was on a plane, cruising at 600mph to my Minnesota destination, anxious to race into my father's driveway and throw my arms around him.
Plans are still in a rough draft, but I'm hoping to make a swing through the Heartland in late July to recharge on some Minnesota Nice and reconnect with the other (and often neglected) half of my life.
These are some nearly-forgotten, year-old photos of my family's 4th of July BBQ.
