As some of you may know, I usually take a trip between the months of June and August to Jordan. This year, I wasn't as fortunate to do so because of my summer classes, but my family made it there and came back about a week ago. I always ask for specific things like spices or seeds, but this year they brought me back a little something extra (not surprised). It's really special to say that I have these little treasures from half way around the world, and it was really comforting to have a taste of home that I've missed so much. As always, a big thanks to them for always thinking of me.
