Dear America: I'm a fan

My oh my, time does go by fast!  I can't believe it has already been two months since I graduated and almost as long since I last blogged.  I just got back last night from the wonderful country of Switzerland, after having spent a lovely week in Spain.  I love traveling, and I loved spending so much time with my family; I feel so blessed to have five such remarkable people as my closest kin.  I would love to share some pictures and stories from the trip, but since I am such an Einstein I managed to leave my camera in Switzerland.  Whoops.  My sisters will bring it back with them in a week, but the travel log will have to wait until then!

In other news, happy belated Fourth of July!  It was the longest holiday of my life…literally.  With the time change from flying, my day was 32 hours long, and I managed to stay awake for 25 of those hours.  One of the lovely things about boyfriends, though, is they make coming home from a vacation just as exciting as leaving.  It was so good to see Will again.  I managed to stay awake long enough to go watch fireworks with him at the H rock.  We could see fireworks all over the valley, from Sugarhouse Park to Kearns, and got to listen to the three or four year old next to us shout repeatedly. "YAY!  YAY!  YAY FOR SALT LAKE CITY AND FIREWORKS!!!"  

It was a nice time, but in my exhaustion as we left I told Will, "I love you, but I love America more."
