At my sisters never-ending encouragement I am writing for my blog again. I really wish I was more like her. So much energy, dedication and determination. Meanwhile a year off in Spain has, admittedly, made me a bit lazy. <!–more–>
I have been in the middle of moving from Spain, to have a short stint in the States and to my final destination, Italy! For now, I am fresh off an Amtrak train, coach class of course, sitting in Kingston, Rhode Island waiting to see the love of my life! He is in a class for work and told me he would be late. So I decided to take the time and write about the last few weeks.
As for Kristen, I simply sent her a text asking if I could meet Gordon that day, and her response was awesome! “You’re here? I thought you forgot my birthday!!” In my defense, I did post a “Happy Birthday. Your present is coming soon!!” on her Facebook page. I thought Facebook made everything official? No? Oops! Good intentions! A few photos of the awesome time we got to spend together!
After way too many Cheetos (thanks Dad!), an overindulgence in Mexican food, margaritas and some well needed family time, it was time to head back to Baltimore!
Once there I spent time with two of Andrew and I’s best friends. I attempted to help rehab their income property with my very limited skills. I got to see some friends I truly haven’t seen in years that I was on the Navy Female Run Team with back in 2003! What a crazy thought that we would happen to be in the same place at the same time! Lucky gals! I also got to see my friend Jen and her two girls who are doing beautifully!
After a week in Baltimore, I got to pop back up to Dewey, DE for our dear friends 40th birthday! At this point I am incredibly exhausted and have had a massive head cold for about two weeks, but that is what happens when you’re burning the candle from both ends right? Worth it? Very. We had a great time, AND I got to see my husband who drove down for the celebrations from RI.
The following day I headed back to Baltimore to spend more time with my friends. Because I was so sick I was in bed most of the day every day the week prior, so my darling husband was very understanding that I really wanted to see them and I am very thankful. One of our friends treated me to a show at the National Theatre in Washington, D.C. the last night I was in Baltimore. We took the train into D.C. for an early dinner, a couple drinks and made some fun memories! We didn’t just go to any show though, we went to a play called Blithe Spirit, starring none other than the amazing, and one of my all-time favorite actresses, Angela Lansbury! What an incredible treat it was to see her in person! She made the show. Not only was it very well done, but hilarious as well. I highly recommend seeing it if you have the time and opportunity!
Finally, I hopped on the afore mentioned train and headed up here to Rhode Island to stay with Andrew for the remainder of his class. It is beautiful and freezing! I’m posting pictures to Instagram as I create new memories here. Make sure to check out my friends and my Art Blog! Stay tuned!
