Home Sweet Home – Father’s Day Edition!

As some of you may already know, I got a new job!  Fortunately, I had some time off before starting, so I decided to fly home and surprise my family!  The catch?  I only had a few days. :/  But, it had been almost a year since I was last home, so I needed it badly and it just so happened to align with Father’s Day.

It all started early Saturday morning at the very awesome PDX airport with a standby flight.  I missed the first two flights (granted, we changed from the first flight to the second before I even left the apartment), but it was all good.  Had a safe flight over (full of photo editing and Anchorman 2) and spent the night with John’s parents.  It was so sweet spending time with them and Clarence!IMG_5686Areh came to pick me up bright and early on Sunday morning.  The plan once we got home was for her to go inside, take Daisy potty, then have me bring Daisy back inside.  I apparently looked like a ghost to everyone.  It was an awesome surprise!

I had such a wonderful time at home and took a ton of photos, so without further ado, I bring you a photo dump of home in Georgia in June.  Enjoy!
