The End... For Now

I sit here in quiet Barrington after being home for just over a week. Reverse culture shock is just the beginning of my emotions. It's crazy how quickly you can adapt to a new part of the world, a new culture, lifestyle, friends, food, language. So I sit here in my quiet house trying to make sense of the biggest question people keep asking me, "What next?" "What is life's next adventure?" For once in my life I am not sure. I know I will take the knowledge and beauty I learned this summer and see that forever change my life. But what is next for Kelly? Who knows. It doesn't mean I'm not planning or dreaming because let's face it, when do I ever stop dreaming of adventure? But more than anything now, I feel extremely blessed for this summer I had to travel and see the world. To have my eyes fully opened for the first time. This is a chapter of my life that I am sad to leave behind but I know that Spain will always be a part of my heart.
So it is with sadness that I say good-bye. I say good-bye but I know in my heart that soon I will be writing here again. So I say good-bye, but only for now...
