It feels like old home week

I love being back in our hometown. My mama always said, "It feels like old home week" when we were somewhere where we saw lots of old friends. Well, let me tell you a little something. If you go to our local Target, and you haven't been there in a while, it feels like old home week! As we were walking up to those glorious automatic red doors, we ran into not one, not two, but three different families we know. We also saw two middle and high school children that we know. They were so adorable and were doing a little Christmas shopping of their own for their siblings! As we were walking in the store, one of our favorite pharmacy techs saw us and waved. As we entered the store, I saw one of my best friend from childhood's mother, one of our daughter's friends with her family, and many other friendly faces. We enjoyed giving hugs and saying hello to everyone. After all, it felt just like old home week.

**Sweet Tampa friends, we do miss you. It just feels good to not be so anonymous for a little while! We'll be back undercover soon! :)**

Why is it that everytime I go home I never run into people that I'd like to reconnect with ~ ugh!

Awe... Hopefully in time this will feel like home! I know it may take a while but chances are it will happen and then when your kids are grown up and come "home" to visit they will consider this home!!:) Hope you are enjoying your time with family and friends. Just wanted to give you an update my friend that is pregnant w/ the triplets is hospitalized b/c she was dialated and having contractions they seem to have stopped all of that and hopefully she will hold out till the 3rd week in January. I think at that point she will be 30 weeks!
