best part of my day. home.

Eight flights. Two countries. Endless miles walked during the discovery of a new city. Decadent food consumed. French phrases learned. New wines discovered. The Grand Prix in Montreal watched. And six days later I am back home.

I slept nine delicious hours last night and still got up at 6:30 this morning. To a 20 pound cat laying on my chest purring at me and a fluffy dog taking up most of my side of the bed, giving me about two inches of room to myself. Just the way I like it. Mmmmm. Home. Except I forgot to get more coffee while at the store last night. AUGH!

I am ready to be home for the next three weeks. Where I can run when I want. Finish projects around the house. And remember to keep coffee in my cupboard.

In running news. I had some happy new Nike Free's waiting for me when I got home. My shoes! They finally arrived. The most bright and obnoxious lime-like color you have ever seen. You better believe I slapped those puppies on and enjoyed a walk/run with my dog. Despite my exhausted body, spirit and legs. Home. It makes me happy.

*the picture doesn't do the color true justice*

LOVE THOSE SHOES!!! so glad you made it safely home.

i smiled when i read about your dog taking up your space...i have 2 small like as in 8-10lb dogs...and i swear i feel like i have no space with them and by morning they have nearly pushed me to the edge of the bed...even though i have a queen sized bed. haha. but so true what you said...i wouldnt have it any other way;) definitely feels like home! have a great day!

Love the Nikes!

It is always good to be home. I love traveling but I honestly miss home cooked meals and my own bed. I just like my house.

super cool color on the shoes! Welcome home (and I felt the same let down when I got home from vacation to find I had no creamer for my coffee!)

Loving the color of those shoes!
