I don't think it will fully sink in that we aren't going back to Sicily (at least not any time soon) until we have a place of our own. Still, as of right now it feels so good to be "home."

Now that I'm home and with family I think I will finally start to get into the Christmas spirit. Our last weeks in Sicily were spent in a nearly empty neighborhood (military housing that is closing) with loaner furniture and very few of our worldly possessions, certainly no Christmas decorations. It didn't feel like Christmas was coming. However, today, as we walked into my Grandma's house, adorned with holiday decor I feel a bit of the Christmas spirit coming on. I'm so glad that we came back in time to spend Christmas with family.
