If all goes well, my mom will arrive here in Vienna in a few hours. I am so excited — this will be the first time I’ve seen her (or anyone in my family, aside from on Skype) since we came here in April. This is the longest I’ve ever been away from my mom (and my family in general).
Her trip kind of came together at the last minute (thanks to a wonderful aunt who helped her get here) so we didn’t know for sure that she was coming until she got on the plane yesterday afternoon.
I can’t wait to see her. I can’t wait to show her our place, my favorite things in Vienna, and to have her share in how wonderful Benjamin and Liam are right now. Especially Liam — she hasn’t seen him for 40% of his life, so he’s basically a completely different creature than he was the last time she saw him. She’s going to get to know him all over again. And, I can’t wait just to talk to her. I’ve missed her so much.
I’m so excited to have her visit! Yay!
