Being able to spend the Thanksgiving holidays with my family and close friends after being away for more than a year, turned out to be exactly the kind of breather I needed.
In the month that I was gone, I savored all of the little things that make a homecoming so wonderful.
Like finding this wedding picture of D-Man and me in my little brother’s wallet.
…and our annual Thanksgiving gathering.
A memorable trip to San Francisco.
Laughing the hardest I’ve laughed in a long time.
Getting spoiled by my parents.
A trip down memory lane…
And finally, being able to finish my dissertation, come back to Spain, and gloriously defend it.
