Boise Bound!

It feels like this is "the blog"

You know... the one that will sum everything up. The one that will formulate in one concise statement all that this trip was, is, and will be for us.

In fact, I kind of thought our last few hours on the road would be just that - epic.

Funny thing is, we did have some deeply honest conversations, we did listen to the best music we had on the ipod, we did take advantage of Sonic's happy hour, and we did cheer as we pulled into our familiar city. However, those last four hours really weren't any different than the entirety of the trip. I'm happy about that.

Yes. There were tears. Yes, we considered blowing off Boise and seeing what Portland was like in January. However, home has a very powerful pull.

As we carefully maneuvered into the garage of Glacierbay Way, we looked up to see a huge "WELCOME HOME" sign taped to the wall and were greeted (just as we had hoped) by Bethany's ecstatic parents. Oh was there ever hugging and jumping and laughing!

It's been said that "home is where the heart is" and "home is where you hang your hat". A little magnet on my mom's refrigerator reads "a house is made of brick and stone, but a home is made of love alone".

At this point, I have only fuzzy ideas to where or what home is. But climbing into a familiar bed in a familiar room with a very familiar friend felt very, well... familiar. And after 19 weeks of unfamiliar, that felt as much like home as anything ever may!

Stay tuned - special edition blogs to follow!
