One Month Countdown!

Hello lovelies! 

I haven't posted in almost two weeks and I must admit it feels weird to have been away for so long.  Jurg and I were at a conference for one of the weeks, but even after arriving back I've been so busy catching up on work and studies that I haven't been able to find a moment to plop myself in front of my laptop until now.  Oh well, sometimes a little blog-cation is necessary and now my head is brimming with post ideas and things to share.  It's definitely good to be back!

I'm going to keep this post short and sweet, but I wanted to share some exciting news: 

I'll be making a quick two-week trip back to California during the first two-weeks of September!


In fact, today marks exactly one month until I leave.  

I'm already salivating over the prospects of in-n-out, cheesecake factory, and {real, glorious} mexican food.  Throw in outlet mall shopping, Nordstrom, H&M and real live medical care and I'm literally counting down the hours.  This trip I'll be heading back to celebrate my Mom's 50th birthday, my Grandma's 80th birthday, and my Dad's retirement party.  The timing also worked out perfectly so that I'll be able to head up to San Jose for a weekend to see one of my best friends off before she's headed to Ukraine for two years with the Peace Corps.  Needless to say it will be a jam packed visit -  jam packed, but lots and lots of fun.  I seriously cannot wait.

And... Southern California blogger meet-up?  I think so!  If anyone lives around the Los Angeles area I'd love to meet up for brunch or a coffee one day.  Let's try and organize something!  

On that note, how has everything been with all of you?  I feel like I've missed so much!
