long time no post

i always mean to update sooner, but always find something else to do besides sit my butt down to write. even though, while living abroad in israel writing & blogging used to be a huge passion of mine. don't get me wrong, it still is, i guess lately i have just redirected my passion to crafting and expanding our small business which, unfortunately, does not leave much time for me to get lost in blogging like i used to or even compose my thoughts enough to write about. 

i still check my fav blogs every other day & love scouring the internet for blog-worthy photos of dreamy vacation destinations, but i just cant find the time to write like i used to. i guess my blog also held a different purpose when i lived abroad, it was a peek inside my life of "flying far," living away from home. living in israel and traveling to the countries around it. i would share what i did that week, where we went, ate, etc. and now that i live in dallas, near to my friends and family, i don't see my blog holding the same purpose. i still use social media sites, but blogging has taken a backseat to my life. and i hope to change that.

anyways, dekel and i will be visiting israel in 3 weeks & we are so excited to be back in our beloved country and to see family and friends. my dear savta (grandmother in hebrew) passed away about a month ago, so this trip will be a bit different for me, as she was the one i always gravitated to visit when i was living there. i even lived with my israeli grandparents for a few months, so it will be tough to face her death and not be able to see her sweet face while i am there. but this trip is more for dekel. he needs this. i can remember how badly i needed the visits home. i would visit every year and a half and it never seemed enough. he needs this and we are both looking forward to it. dekel's best friend, guy, will be getting married the day we land in israel, so we are looking forward to a whirlwind of events and celebrations during our stay. a trip to tel aviv with dekel's whole family has been planned and for the weekdays in between, dekel and i plan to take nature hikes, go to the beach and spend time with my 2 little sisters, mai & leonne

have you traveled anywhere this summer?

have any traveling plans for the future??
