I left on Thursday afternoon and came back on Sunday afternoon. 3 days without my kids. I have never been apart from them for that long (we've left Miles and Jonas for 24 hours, twice. i've never left emmy). Apart from a little freak-out a week or two before I flew out, all was well as I left and during my trip.
While in St. Louis I did a lot of just chatting with my old roommie Megs, visiting the arch, and of course, attending the seminar. Oh yeah, and also dying in the 85 degree/95% humidity weather. Yuck.
But I had an absolutely wonderful time. Although every time I went somewhere I felt like I was forgetting something (something stinky or whiny or to that effect). I felt so light and free and that was such a great feeling. Megs and her family are beautiful and wonderful hosts and friends. She has a gorgeous home and a family to match it. Thanks to all who made my trip possible - you know who you are, right?
Here are just a few pictures:
Here I am leaving. Nobody looks too sad. In fact, a couple of us look really happy.
The Arch. And the shadows of me and cutie Ellie.
Another picture of the arch. Impressive.
And here we are at the seminar. Lovin' the seminar and just being together.
It was great.
