so i'm back. i had several near-death experiences and my shoes turned my feet orange since i was soaking wet all the time. the english country side was intense but beautiful. it was a lovely weekend, but i'm glad to be clean and dry now. i felt the sun and the wind trampled across stones that were centuries old. more detail to come.
the important thing, however, is that i called my mom when i got back and she told me that she and my dad and BEN are coming to london for thanksgiving! so incredibly happy. trying to savour all the family moments while we still can. i'm already thinking of things that we can do.
also, i might be going to budapest. just because i can.
