I wrapped up my time in New York with two days in Philadelphia to see a friend give a wonderful speech to the AVID Summer Institute, and now I am home again.
The butterfly is on a butterfly bush I planted at the corner of our property; isn't it beautiful?
Being back in my life and interacting with people after spending two weeks alone has been surprisingly challenging. I'm an extrovert, but I found I really enjoyed my time away from everything and everyone, and even though I was ready to come home and missed my people, I'm finding it just a bit difficult to be without the amount of quiet time I had in New York. It was definitely a luxury.
