Tell me, how do they do this? The colors on these roses are just unreal; I love them!
So, July has been rough. I have had sick kids (two with pneumonia), it is so hot here that you can melt right into a puddle in minutes, my boys are stuck inside our not so big apartment trying to avoid becoming puddles, I am homesick and I miss Target, and signs I can understand, and Arby's Chicken Cordon Bleu WITH fry sauce, and clearance shopping, and basically anything familiar. Don't get me started on how much I miss family.
Don't get me wrong, I do love it here. It is amazing and beautiful and downright outstanding 95% of the time. But sometimes that other 5% can seem a bit lofty. It was lofty in July.
On the bright side, I just picked up my mom from the airport! YAY! And guess what else? She is allowing Dana and I to LEAVE THE COUNTRY and go to Korea and Kyoto (think Memoirs of a Geisha); she's the best. Afterwards we have a couple more weeks to give her the tour of the island. This makes me happy.
But, back to the flowers. July was not so nice to me and so Dana brought me these amazing roses to help my heart heal; they helped. The planets realigned, calmness came back to my soul...and then my mom flew in. August is looking better and better.
