My mom came to visit!!!!! I was trying to come up with a cute intro, but really it boils down to this: my mom came to visit!!!!! She's on a flight to Vietnam as we speak, but she set up an overnight layover in Chicago :-D
I've never been the type to get homesick. But, I also used to go home every two-three months. Life has been hectic, to say the least, as you well know, so we don't make it back to Indiana quite as frequently. I talk to my mom while walking to the train in the morning when she's in US, and when she has wifi and is abroad.
She flew in Sunday afternoon, we went to dinner at Feast and had a cocktail at the Violet Hour (her suggestion). I love her.
