home. In America. has included a wonderful Sunday with family, my mom's homemade food, and spending time with my little (but not so little anymore) Lola. And this week has been jam packed with catching up with friends and making a trip to Birmingham. I have missed this country but have been feeling really homesick for those five weeks I spent in Europe. Life in America isn't too shabby though, especially if it means homemade banana pudding.
