As of today we’ve been back in the US for 1 week! It’s been a week full of sleepless nights and cold weather, but we’re beginning to reorient ourselves (and the girls) to life in Illinois. We’ve spent this first week back in the Chicago area, but plan on traveling to Springfield later this afternoon – arriving just in time for some greatly anticipated pre-wedding festivities. My good friend Kirk Polley is tying the knot on Saturday, and the Sanners plan on attending in full force. Here are a few of our favorite things since arriving in the US:
Brett – Dunkin Donuts coffee, catching up with friends, a visit to the Village Discount Outlet (world’s best thrift store), and spending some quality time with the in-laws.
Kristin – Thai food, visiting everyone at Thorn Creek, ready access to a car, and spending some quality time with her mom and dad.
Sofia – Indulging in a Boston Creme doughnut, playing with her cousins, getting a second round of Christmas, and spending some quality time with her grandma and grandpa.
Emma – Sleeping, eating, and meeting her grandma and grandpa (and cousins, aunts, and uncles) for the first time!
