Visiting Home

Cosy Cup of Hot Chocolate

A few weeks ago I returned to Wellington after visiting home for the first time in 8 months. I was able to spend 10 days at home. It was a great chance to rest and refresh. After being non-stop for so long I really enjoyed the break.

Seeing family was definitely the highlight of my trip. I had seen some family when they came to visit me during the year, but others I hadn't seen since the day before I left home. I was lucky enough to be home for my aunt's birthday too. Having home cooking (and not cooking for myself for the first time in a while) was something I enjoyed every minute of. 

Of course, reuniting with my dog was one of the best feelings ever. My parents surprised me by bringing her when they picked me up. She went absolutely insane. While I was home I had lots of cuddles and took way too many photos. Sorry phone storage!

I mentioned in my 5 Things I Miss About Home post that I missed my shower and all my wonderful beauty products. My first shower after arriving home was glorious! Although that was partially due to the 10 hours of travel. I took full advantage of my products while I was there. 

Visiting home really made me appreciate my life. Sometimes you need to slow down to put things into perspective. My trip home went by so quickly but I'll be home again in just under two months! 

What do you enjoy about visiting home?

    For me, I enjoy the comfortable beds I slept in and taking long, hot baths! Oh well, I hope to visit home soon too. <3 :)

    1. My argument is that I can call and text people but I can't with my pup, that's why I miss her more haha!
