Unbelievably, our time in the States has come to a close. Tomorrow morning we fly back to Sicily! I am both thrilled and miserable, realizing that all these happy days (especially those filled with family) are over. Now we’re moving back to a new community, a new home, a new culture, a new life.
This past week has been wonderful and filled with family. So many gatherings around dinner tables, so many games, so much conversation, so many snuggles of a beloved granddaughter/niece/daughter. The big news around here is that the Garber family gained a sister this week… Jonathan proposed to Erika! And tonight our little Lena was baptized at our church on Capitol Hill, a big celebration which many of our dear friends and all of our family attended. There are so many photos to share! But I’ll leave you with one of the best photos from the weekend: an aunt and her niece, both in cozy onesies. Quite indicative of the coziness of our Thanksgiving week.
Internet will be spotty the next few days as we travel and then set up house. I’ll share as I can. Hopefully (… fingers crossed!) I’ll be getting a new iPhone with video capabilities, so we’ll see if that leads to even more fun updates from across the pond. Sicily, we’re coming home!
