anyone there?

tadaima [i'm home! in japanese]

it's hard to believe i'm back. we just missed the big typhoon and earthquake. we didn't miss a horrible and delayed flight home [warning :: reconsider flying united].

my trip was a complete whirlwind - full of sights, sounds, tastes that i am still processing. i'm not even sure how to begin sharing what i did. do i start from the start? do i work backwards? do you really want to see every single photo i took? [no, really, you don't]

being home is both good and totally overwhelming. i'm not even sure where to begin. jet lag and i have become furiously fast friends and companions.

hopefully after a couple more days of sleep catch up i'll be able to start to ease back. i just wanted to pop in and say hello! and i missed you all!!

Joy and happiness abound! It made my day to see your name in the comments and know that you were back.

I would LOVE to ALL the photo's you took, but then you'd never be off the computer so I will be happy with whatever you show in any order you choose.

Hope your jet lag eases soon. Missed you hugely xxx
