So, obviously I made it home alive. The trip was amazing. Absolutely amazing, I just don' know any other way to say it. I have been home 10 days, and think I have finally made it over the jet lag hurdle. For the first 5 or so days I was home, the exhaustion would smack me in the face about 4pm, and I was in bed asleep by 9pm, which is super rare, as I tend to be a night owl.
I have struggled to blog since I've been home, and not really for a lack of time. Sure, it has been a time consuming effort to sort and edit the nearly 2000 pictures I took, but honestly, it feels more like something else has been holding me back. I have felt unsure of how to proceed with sharing about my trip. So much happened, I don't even know where to begin, and while I am dying to write and share about all of it, I definitely don't want to drone on about it for post upon post until we are all bored to tears.
In an effort to just rip the band-aid off, so to speak, I thought I would start with a language that always feels easy to me, photos. And since it's Sunday, I thought it might feel good to get back into the swing of things with a Sunday Snapshots posts.
These photos are of Paris, where I both started and ended my journey, but the shots below are mainly from the first stay. The monuments were incredible, and I included a small group from Notre Dame, but some of the most poignant and lasting memories I made were centered on the smaller things, the sights, smells, and sounds of the city. Hopefully the shots speak for themselves.
