I honestly can't remember the last time I missed my family. Like really missed them. Because I don't really get away from them that often, and when I do, the time tends to fly by...and before I know it, I'm back at home feeling like I never even left.
Well, I just got back from my long-awaited trip to San Francisco, and for the most part, that's exactly what happened. The time flew by, I had a blast, I met some amazing bloggers I'd never met in person, I spent time touring the city with some of my favorite people, I ate amazing good, I stayed up too late, I slept in, and.....I mostly didn't miss my family. And then, suddenly, I did.
It happened the morning I was leaving to come home, as I was packing up my suitcase and drinking my last morning coffee with friends. I started thinking about the week ahead, and as much as I wasn't quite ready to get back to the daily grind, a part of me really was. Because at the end of the day, even though I love to get away, home is the most comfortable place I know. And that counts for a lot.
