Chapter Three; Destination Love
Reasons for my road trip...
Spend time with Precious and Mom and Dad,
escape the Houston heat and humidity,
take bazillions of photos
the most obvious of all....
visit my sweet Raar and her husband Ninja!
Anyway they had moved into a new apartment and I was anxious to see it.
There is something about needing to get a "visual" when it comes to your children.
When Raar calls me I want to be able to see her in my mind while I hear her voice.
Without having been there it's like my child is floating in space...
I imagine MY first married apartment.
I wish I had a picture to show you but
like all nightmares it was never recorded for posterity.
I'm not even sure if it would have actually shown up on film it was so
dark and dingy.
After peaking at Soldier Summit and winding down the canyon road I was ready to give my first born a huge hug and see for myself her new pad.
Don't you just love the moment of arrival when you haven't seen a loved one in awhile?
That beginning of the vacation butterfly feeling....
Knocking of the door waiting for the fun to begin.
It was so fun to walk through their home
while my daughter showed me each room...
pointing out the little loving touches that have made it into her own.
Feathering her new little nest
with creative ideas and thrifty finds.
What a wonderful young woman she has become...
and it happened so quickly.
From dependent fussy newborn
beautiful, competent lady of the house.
From young child furnishing her barbie house
young woman furnishing a home for real,
From homesick college freshman
a happy and loving wife who loves her life.
I am so proud of you..
Raar and Ninja.....thanks for letting me come and giving me the grand tour. I loved it.
