How we know it's time to come home

Our basil plant is in need of Last Rites.

We ran out of Nutella this morning.

Scott and I have exhausted every English-language non-romance book in our little library, and although he would force himself to translate Turkish before stooping to Danielle Steel, I don't have that much pride. I'm in the middle of a book now that uses phrases like "panther leap of arousal" and where people quiver and feel ravenous all the time. Very demoralizing.

Our laundry pile is beginning to rival the bell tower for tallest structure in the village.

And most importantly, we miss all of you. We leave at 4:15 am local time tomorrow to head for the airport, and I don't know if I'll get another post up before then. See you all stateside on Saturday!

So sad your vacation has to end, but we do miss you. Tell Owen Grandaddy said when he left for work, "Tomorrow Owen comes home!" Of course Scott and Shelley come with Owen--looking forward to seeing y'all tomorrow night. Love, MIMI

Praying for traveling graces. Tatum and I were beyond excited that she received a post card from the leaning tower of "pizza!". So cool! Please tell Owen thank you! Looking forward to seeing you all and hearing all about it!

Glad to have you come back home but so glad you were able to go and make wonderful memories in Italy! Love to all and talk with you soon.
