The last 2 weeks have been busy- to say the least- and I have missed my blog! So here is a rundown of what I have been up to…
The weekend before last, Zach and I traveled to North Carolina for Zach’s grandmother’s memorial service.The service was so nice and personal. It was the type of service you didn’t want to end. So many people spoke and talked about what a wonderful person and character Ginny was. She would have loved it! Ginny was one of a kind and left an impression on everyone she met.
Even though we were there under sad circumstances it was good to see all of the family. Since everyone lives in separate states it is hard to get together but when we do it is great to catch up.
We also got to see our two nieces, Ella and Maylee, who live in South Carolina. They had changed so much since Thanksgiving and it was great getting to play with them.
We were also able to celebrate Bob’s birthday as a family.
Last week we rushed home from NC because I had to leave for a work trip early Monday morning. I was in Providence, Rhode Island and then Charlotte. When traveling for work you don’t get to see much but I was able to walk downtown in Providence to get dinner.
The bellman at the hotel gave me a coupon for a free appetizer for a seafood restaurant near by. I went in for dinner and had the most amazing crab cakes ever! It would be worth the trip to go back and eat there again.
On Wednesday I went to Charlotte and was lost most of the time. That city is so confusing! Even the mall is confusing! You have to go through the department stores to get to the other wings of the mall. I ran over to the mall one night before they closed and got lost going back to the hotel for almost 2 hours! It was raining, dark, and my cell phone was dead. I saw a police man at a gas station and he let me follow him to my hotel. I was in tears by the time I got back to my hotel. I have been to Charlotte many times but never really driven much while I was there. Thankfully the work part of the trip went great. My personal highlight from this trip would be my new summer dresses. I got a dress from Anthroplogie that was regularly $100 for $20 🙂
So that is where I have been but glad to be back for a few days until I head for Johnson City.
