On December 20th, 2010 I boarded a couple planes, slept through a few flights and found myself back in my native territory of Iowa. My mom and little brother picked my older brother, sister-in-law and I up from the airport and whisked us home. I was over-joyed to reunite with my family. We spent the next seven days eating, playing games, talking (95% about food - what food to eat, where to buy said food, how to prepare food, and what food does to our bodies after consuming) and visiting our extended family in Kansas.

I finally schlepped back to Vermont a week later with 90 lbs of luggage in tow. Next Sunday I am moving into my very own apartment! Merry Christmas!
