I am now home in Okieland and what my trip back to England taught me is, home is most definitely where the heart is and my heart is with the Hubster here.
I spent Christmas at my dad's on the edge of the Peak District in Derbyshire, a truly beautiful area of England. The snow was bad there too, but with the rolling fields and dry stone walls abounding, it just made it all even more picturesque.
My dad's dog Ellie had a smart coat to go out for her walk in and it was definitely needed!
This was the depth of the ice on one field we traversed across very carefully!
It was nice to go back for a visit but I will never feel like England is home again, I am certain of that. As we came in to land in Chicago they showed a 'welcome to America' video for visitors and it just lifted my heart with pride and happiness to be back on American soil.
And now I am back to school which has been crazy the first week back, and life has returned to it's normal busy but happy routine.
Happy New Year to y'all!
