back in Alaska...

I'm home! After 17 hours of flying and some additional plane time waiting for all the official "okays" on the ground I'm sitting at my computer in my very own bedroom. Thanks for the prayers to get me here! I was welcomed back at the airport by my parents and 7 of my cousins. You guys are the BEST! They are all here for Dave and Aimy's wedding on Saturday. Good times are to be had! One a wedding celebration and two my family is crazy! There is never a dull moment at a Burdine reunion or get together. A blessing to wrap up the summer like this.

It's good to be back, but bitter sweet at the same time. I was reading through my journal on my flight back going over the past couple months from Mexico to now and realized just how MUCH I've experienced in this short amount of time. I am thankful for the time alone in London to process some of this experience and know that I'll still be processing as I adjust back to the "normal" eb and flow routine of life. Blessings on all those who are also starting up work again this week! Amelia, thanks so much for your card! May God place the right roommate in your path! Keep me posted.

Stay tuned for wedding news and pictures!

welcome back home! I got to talk to my father last night (on his birthday) and it was real encouraging.

Hannah keeps telling me all the surprises James has for my birthday--I know now that i can't tell her if i want to keep a secret.

I am so glad that you made it back with no major problems. Did you get any sleep??? Tell us how you are coping with the time difference.

Its been raining two days--but today it is a beautiful sunny-beach day.

God bless
