Arizona Trip

After Christmas, I took a little trip down to Arizona to surprise my family. We had a family reunion planned for several months. However, once Nick signed in Karlskrona, we didn't think we would be able to make it. Fortunately, I was able to book a ticket to the US and surprise the entire family!

To start the trip, I left Karlskrona at 6:45, and began my journey of chasing the sun around the world. Train to Copenhagen, then a flight to Washington D.C., where I almost caught up! However, with a tour hour layover, the sun passed me. However, it allowed for beautiful views on my last flight from DC to Phoenix.

On both Saturday and Sunday, my entire family got together for dinner- complete with matching family reunion t-shirts and all! For anybody worried about it, I was able to bring one home to Karlskrona for Nick as well- so almost like he made it to the reunion!

It was so good to see my family again, even if just for two nights. I hadn't realized how much I missed them, and home in general, until I saw everybody again and had to leave just over a day later. Fortunately, I was coming home to a wonderful husband and the knowledge that my parents and younger brother would be visiting in just a few days. However, I also knew I wouldn't see the rest of my family until at least April- and more than likely May, by the time Nick and I return from the honeymoon. But, again, focusing on the positive- and my family would get to see where Nick and I live just a few days from when I left them in Arizona!
