My parents' house

will always be a wonderful, warm place to come home to. I hope they never move. They live in this huge old farm house that was built in 1905 in a little town in East Texas, where the trees are so tall think you must be in another state. The house and land are so alive with the history of people who lived there before that even though my mom complains about the wall paper in the kitchen, it kind-of belongs with the rest of the house.

I've been here since Friday night and so far, I've gotten to surprise my little sister when we went to pick her up from camp, see my brother play an incredible soccer game in town, go to my parents' church where the special music was "Father's Eyes," and watch two movies with my family--The Terminal, not bad at all, and Trekkies, one of the funniest, most brilliant documentaries to date if you ask me.

I like being here.

Amy, I'm so glad that you got to come down to see me!...I mean, us...hehe. Anyway, it was a wonderful surprise to have you pick me up from UMARMY, and I'm so glad that I got to spend time with you (it had almost been a year and I was missing you! :( Well, I'm glad you came down, and hope you had a safe trip back to Austin. Talk to you soon! Love you! xoxox
