What's round on the outside and high in the middle?

That's right, OHIO.

It's so weird being home. It almost doesn't feel like real life. Bible College was real life. I feel like I'm in a foreign country. It's so weird to be able to read all the signs and talk to cashiers and understand conversations I'm not involved in. I did the math, 9 of the past 12 months I have been in Europe. No wonder the midwest feels foreign.

However, I am so happy to be home and catching up with friends and family. My mom and sister and I baked up a storm this morning and we are decorating the tree tomorrow! I am so blessed to have a wonderful family! I am looking forward to the visit here at home, but I can't wait to go back to my second home in Germany.

So until then, I will sleep in my own bed, eat eggs every morning, drive my car and stay up as late as I want...... ohhh the freedom! :)

Wishing you all a joyous day celebrating the incarnation of the Living God!
