Things have been pretty busy lately with Thanksgiving and the holidays fast approaching. I’m adjusting to life as a married woman … it is pretty enjoyable and indeed an adventure, though I was missing Taiwan again a little the past few days.
A travel blogger friend of mine was having me help him with a project by compiling a list of things to do and eat in Taiwan. Some of my Taiwan memories came flooding back and, with them, a bittersweetness. It’s crazy that I’ve been home for more than two years already and part of me still doesn’t want to let go of the island. But I suppose that’s how it always will be. Especially when a place gets that deep under your skin.
I think it might be hard for my new husband to understand my love for Taiwan and this morning I was again, thinking about how one day I’d love to show him the country.
Life does go on and new stories have to be written. But some old stories remain a part of who we are and who we will become.
With that being said, I have a lot to be happy about. God has continued to bless my life and though there is always a thirst for travel and adventure in my heart, I also know that I have many beautiful things to be thankful for here at home.
Here are a few cheery photos taken over the last couple weeks …
