We had a lot of fun together over the last few weeks - at my sister's house, camping, going to dinner and whatnot - but most of all I loved those quiet moments when we could just be in a room or car together and not have to run down our list of updates like we usually do over the phone... we just enjoyed the moment and acted like we see each other all the time.
I wish that was the case.
Three weeks goes by fast. I had to drop her off at the airport yesterday morning, and after I hugged her goodbye and started to drive away, I got emotional. I felt like a piece of my heart went missing again, just as it was starting to feel whole. It happens every year, but never gets easier.
Now, if she can figure out how to get her photos uploaded to her computer (I have faith in you, Mom!) I should have some fabulous photography to share on here shortly, but for now I'll just share one of my favorite moments from her trip...
...our scenic drive up behind the capitol. We stumbled upon this hill top with a gorgeous panoramic view of the Salt Lake valley. I had never seen Utah look so beautiful before. We would have stayed and watched the sunset if I didn't drink my coffee so fast! ;)
It's bittersweet we have to live so far apart, but what can I say, I loves my Momma, and no matter how old I get, something tells me I won't ever stop needing her.
