Homesick again

Today is my brother’s wedding reception in Michigan. I went to the wedding in April in the Dominican Republic, and since I’m already going home in July for my sister’s wedding, I couldn’t really afford to go home for this reception too. Now I’m realizing that I probably should have just gone home for 6 weeks because I am extremely homesick. We set up the webcams so I can talk to my family and watch the reception, and it’s making me happy and sad at the same time. They seem so close to me, but I know they are so far away.

I am going home on July 18 though, and will stay until August 7. My sister’s wedding is August 1st in Virginia and I am a bridesmaid. Unfortunately, David cannot come with me because he doesn’t have any vacation this summer. We’ll see about next summer though. I really miss Michigan in the summertime and I want him to see why it’s so great.

Only 3 more weeks…

I heart Michigan

    that sucks you had to miss your brother’s wedding, but just try to think happy thoughts about your upcoming trip home! It will be warm and sunny and you’ll be able to see all the family members you haven’t seen in a while because of your sis’s wedding! Even though David can’t come, I’m sure you’ll have a great time, and you’ll be ready to come back to France in August to see your chéri :)

    Totally understand. But sounds like you’re going to have a great month at home with your family in a couple of weeks.

    Love the MI graphic, may steal it at some point :)

    Think of it this way, you can’t be everywhere at once. Thanks to technology you got to see the reception live online which isn’t bad! You were there!( well sorta) That wasn’t possible 15 years ago! You’ll be going home for a while to see your family and you’ll feel much better!

    But I completely understand what you’re going through.

    No matter where you are, it is tough. For international couples it is the toughest, where to spend holidays, having the vacation for both of you to see family… And when you have kids it isn’t easier. Chin up.
