I'm home!

I made it!

The plane ride was long, but I didn't have any delays or hiccups in the process of getting home, which was great!

I cried a little while my plane was taking off at the "Pulkovo" airport (in St Petersburg.) I was sad to be leaving. I also cried (a lot, this time) when I arrived at baggage claim in Las Vegas and found my parents. Getting home to my siblings also brought on another "ball fest." What can I say, the whole thing was pretty darn emotional. ;)

I am so glad to be back. I loved coming home and having the house all decorated for Christmas. My family also got a real Christmas tree this year, which was a treat. Along with that, my wonderful mother bought me new bedding (which I needed!) and made sure my room was put together.

It's time in St Pete's feels like another life. And I miss it!

Here are some pictures I took on the way home.

About to take off at 5:55 am
The building says "Russia"

I'm on American soil!

You can see the Statue of Liberty!

Thanks again to everyone who helped me with this trip. So glad I did it!
