we’re back!

After an invigorating 10-day romp through the Balkans, this little family returned to home in Sicily.  Unlocking the door to our house and setting things to right within felt enormously satisfying to Elliott and me, who love creating a home (making room) and living deeply in it.  Meanwhile, our little girl tromped eagerly around on all fours, enthusiastically pulling herself up on all the familiar ledges and coffee tables.

This afternoon we took a long walk into the valley below our cliff-hanging house.  After hiking for about an hour, we determined to summit a steep little rise.  The view from the top took our breaths away, especially as the sun was just setting behind our little town in the distance.

Now we’re curled up on the couch together in front of a crackling fire, listening to music and soaking up the sweetness of home life.  Tomorrow there will be much more settling in to do, and, for Elliott, a full day in the veterinary clinic.  But tonight there is just rest.

(Photo was taken on my iPhone, chosen because it trumped several others taken on my Canon DSLR.  That little Apple gadget amazes me.)

    So glad you are home safe and sound. We just arrived home an hour ago or so, and found everything looking, well, so homey! It’s good to be home, though we are missing you all!
