October and November were really hard months for me. Thinking about the holidays coming up and being so far from home puts me in a full blown depression. It didn't help that I hadn't been home in two years. I miss the familiarity of my hometown, but mostly miss my parents and siblings and my two wonderful nieces.
I had put in for time off at the beginning of October to get home for Thanksgiving. My days got denied which did not help with my mental health. To my suprise the week before Thanksgiving my days got approved! I need a nice, yet too short, time in Pennsylvania with my family for the holidays!
I hope you all enjoy this photo dump, and understand how truly happy I was to be back home!
