explanations (in a french accent)

It's my first July in New York since since I was 13 years old---a very long time ago! It's hot and balmy, but wonderfully splendid to be here. I'm staying with my parents over this next month, and then my hombre is flying back in from South Africa. We'll probably put in a few weeks of ministry travels and then we'll be coming back to New York for me to have surgery to get my tonsils removed (dun dun dun). I'm not sure how I feel about all that yet---let's just back burner those thoughts for the time being.

In the meantime, I'm enjoying time with family, all things Long Island, and an American summer. (It's always been my dream to spend these months in America so that I can avoid winter in South Africa!)

I have a lot of catching up to do... So bear with me!
