The whirlwind tour is over.

After more than 2 months of guests and/or traveling, we are back home, all alone, and working on recovering. (Though I still haven't attempted unpacking yet . . . maybe tomorrow.)

We had an incredibly fabulous (though very busy) trip to the US and thoroughly enjoyed bringing Eric's parents and youngest sister back with us to Brasil for a couple weeks. But I must admit, walking back into our apartment at midnight Sunday was a good feeling - having no pending plans for a while is rather appealing right now.

Although poor Hubby is back to the grind at work, Gabriela and I are taking the opportunity to rest and recover from all the running. And apparently the little chickadee needed the rest - it's after 11:00 and except for getting up for 20 minutes to eat at 8:00, Gabs is still sound asleep!

I'll attempt to recap our weeks away real soon, but for now I might go curl up on the couch with a book and take advantage of the quiet!
