home

On July 4 at 5:50am I arrived for the second time in NZ. It marked the reveal of the longest and biggest secret I think I’ve ever kept in my entire life. Back in January, I purchased tickets to return to my beloved NZ for July/August. I had this dream of surprising my host siblings and by some miracle we did it! Willa did a double take and Theo insisted he knew it was happening, and now here we are together. I did my best to fight jet lag all day, took a walk up Mt Albert with Theo and Oscar, and enjoyed dinner with the family. It feels like so much time and no time at all has passed but after almost 3 years since I first arrived in NZ, I’m home.
