I spent most of this week back in Austin, Texas, where we lived for almost five years. It was a lovely few days seeing new babies born since I moved, enjoying babies who are now very fun pre-schoolers, and talking with people whose hearts I know and love.
I have no pictures to document these dear-to-my-heart people or the fun times we had. And I don’t really regret that. Because the truth is I was immersed in the moments of each relationship, rarely even glancing at email or text or even my calendar!
However, as wonderful a trip as it was, as much as I enjoyed time with friends I don’t often get to see, I have to admit that this introvert is tired, and very much looking forward to a weekend at home to recharge. And for me, much of the recharging process involves curling up with a good book. Hope you find a minute or two to do the same!
