Linking up with Young People in Love again today!

I can’t stop myself from watching just one more episode of Downton Abbey (yes, I finally got on the bandwagon and am thoroughly enjoying it).

I want to freeze frame mornings when my dad and I go get an early morning coffee at Peets, do the crossword, and all is well. (Especially when we correctly fill in a Wednesday all by ourselves.)

I find it mildly concerning when I realize how many books I read and how much tv I watch. It’s like I have nothing else to do with my life.

I want to soak up all the typical American things surrounding me right now, and take them back to the Netherlands with me.

I decide to take the plunge and visited my first Mormon church meeting last Sunday. It was enjoyable and interesting and I wonder what my life would be like if I were a Mormon.

It really hits me that I’ll likely never feel completely American or completely Dutch but will have to keep going back and forth all my life.

I can’t believe how lucky I am that I get to travel so much. (The upside to hybridity!)

I feel like I never, never, ever want to move to the suburbs.

I feel like a really good person when I call my mom a couple times a week to check on her and just chat. I feel even better when I actually go visit her.

  1. Are you in the states right now? You’d mentioned you were going out of town in an email, but I don’t think you said where.

    And also I’m glad to hear your first lds church meeting was so positive! I’d love to hear more about what you thought!

  2. I’m so glad you’re loving Downton Abbey! I still haven’t watched last week’s episode and I’m dying over it.

    Also, Becca said she had a great time with you on Sunday!
