So that’s it. Time to head home.
We had a great run. We did it. We hit the pause button, we got away, we reduced life to its core elements in an effort to really find what matters. Things were simple. Things were complicated.
We disconnected. We reconnected.
It was a good thing and it was a great thing. Good things may end, but no truly good thing ever dies. The wonder of our escape can never be undone, and in life’s hardest moments we will always have the Asian sunshine to smile back upon. Because the memory lives on.
We lived, loved, and learned. But now the gravity of home is sucking us back. Wedding, career, family, life. We missed it. We’re ready. We’re fulfilled, and returning home with a touch of magic in our back pocket, and the knowledge that the world is a beautiful place. And it beckons.
