Update: It was only a five hour drive home. I splashed through puddles, neatly avoided hydroplaning, and zoomed around several vehicles mortally afraid of corners. On the home stretch, I encountered a blizzard, but managed to outdrive it, dropping safely into the valley before too much had accumulated on the road. I'm thankful I still had my snow tires on.
I am happy to be home: I had a delightful visit with my dear friend, and I wish we lived closer together. It felt good and right and divine, however, to simply be home. Home is a beautiful thing.
I have a bajillion blogs and posts and friends to catch up on. If I haven't visited your blog in awhile, never fear: I am heading your way soon!
