What I've Been Up To

Hello Blog Friends! It's been a great month-long sabbatical over here. I'll be honest - I won't be surprised if I take another one.

Over the past 4-ish weeks, I've seen a good friend get married {at the beautiful St. John's Episcopal - "the Presidents' church"} and danced up a storm at the fun reception. If I could get a band that great at my future wedding, I would hands-down get a band.

I've also nearly melted several times due to the oppressive temps we've had. Can you imagine 50 days of 90+ degrees and humidity? It ain't comfortable. Especially when 20 of those days were over 95!

I've floated down the Shenandoah in a tube {mimosa in hand, haha} and grilled out in the countryside with the Appalachians in the distance.

I've indulged my inner history nerd with a day trip to Gettysburg and a tour of the battlefields, stopping by the side of the road for heirloom tomatoes and the best peaches I've ever had.

And, much to even my surprise, I've purchased another ticket to Nebraska. Two times in 6 weeks?! I've never done that before. But when I thought of all the places I could fly for my birthday, the one that sounded the best was home. And KC is coming with me!

I'm off to a Nationals ballgame and to finish packing before tomorrow! . . Have a great weekend!

It's good to hear from you. I just returned to NE from your area, and very happy to be out of that traffic. Attended wedding on Virginia Beach, visit to Udvar-Hazy Center, Sully Plantation, Arlington Cemetery, Air Force Memorial and watched people floating down the Shenandoah in a tube at Harper's Ferry. Couldn't tell if they had Mimosas.

50 days over 90??? We had a few hot days recently and I thought that was going to kill me!
