Hi Everyone!!  After a fabulous vacation with my mom and my sister Abby, I’m back in Minnesota–but just for two more weeks until we make the trek back to Virginia!  (who’s counting?!)

It was a fabulous, once-in-a-lifetime kind of trip and I continue to feel so blessed for the opportunity.  We cruised through Turkey and Greece, toured incredible ancient sites (we saw 2 of the 7 ancient wonders of the world!), rested on beautiful beaches, took in the breathtaking views, and shopped and bargained our hearts out.

Most of the pictures are on my mom’s and Abby’s cameras, but here are a few of my favorites:

Ancient Library in Ephesus
Santorini, Greece–my favorite stop!
The Parthenon in Athens


I’m still settling back into my normal life and unfortunately, I think I caught a little bug on the plane ride home so I’m trying to recover, but I did want to share a Olympic-inspired video I saw this morning that I just LOVED.  Are ya’ll watching the Olympics?!  I’m trying to catch up, but the one story I’m committed to following is Gabby Douglas and the women’s gymnastics.  The team final is tonight and then on Thursday night, she competes in the women’s all-around–Go Gabby!
