Much Needed Time

Have you ever hear the saying, “You don’t know much you need something until you have it…”? I think that’s how I have felt these past two weeks. Mom and dad arrived from Texas a couple of weeks ago and ever since then we have had a lot of time together. They come visit a couple times a year, but I always forget how much I treasure the time we are together until they get here. As their time is winding down, I would like to reflect on the time we have had together through photos!

The first full week they were here, we traveled about 6 hours to the providence of Mondulkiri. We stayed in wood cabins and cooked most of our meals on a propane stove we borrowed from a colleague at school. We were able to see some amazing things, do some amazing things and just be together.

When we came back, we have just been hanging out together and doing things at our house and around town.

I have truly enjoyed our time together this holiday season! School starts again on the 4th and I am starting again with a full heart 🙂
