should I reintroduce myself?

I should probably start by apologizing for my ridiculously long absence from blogging.   My husband and I were in Greece for three and a half weeks, where life consisted of beaching, sleeping and eating.  I really couldn't complain.  We saw some amazing towns and beaches, ate some lovely fresh food, and made some great memories.  Being Greek myself, it was nice to return back to my parents home country. The last time I travelled to Greece was 19 years ago, so I was quite over due for a visit.  My family was so excited to see me, and also excited to meet my husband.  They were so welcoming, providing us with the most fresh fruits I'd ever had. My aunt made us huge dinners with all fresh ingredients grown in their own garden.   My cousins only recognized me because they knew I was with my husband, and that he was "tall."   I finally met their children, and they are the cutest things ever. They were obsessed with my camera and were dying to take their own pictures. Even though we didn't stay with them for too long, it was so nice to reconnect with them. We can't wait to go back and spend more time with them. I also finally got to see my grandfather, whom I haven't seen since I was 12.  I bawled my eyes out.  His house looked the same, but different at the same time.  Much has changed, and so I'm glad that I got to see him one more time.  

Anyway, over the next little while I'll share with you more photos of the lovely places we saw.  I hope you enjoy.
