I started off my June with my first-ever trip to New Orleans. It was a pre-birthday celebration with my friend, Linda, and her boyfriend Mani. I don’t know what my perception beforehand was (probably Mardi Gras-esque) but I was actually overly impressed. Here’s a look:
To continue my birthday (this was actually the weekend of my birthday), my boyfriend and friends planned a trip to Charlottesville. Scotty and I had talked about going to Charlottesville for two years and it finally happened! For those of you who haven’t been, I highly recommend it. The wineries are amazing, the campus of UVA is gorgeous and it’s such a short ride from DC.
Some of our friends got married in Chicago the weekend before July 4th. We got to spend a few days in one of my favorite cities and went to an amazing wedding.
Green Lake, Wisconsin
Since we had weddings both wedding before and after the Fourth, we went to Scotty’s family’s lake house in Green Lake, Wisconsin for the week in between and the holiday. I’ve been to the Fore’s lake house 3 or 4 times but it had been over 2 years since the last time. It was so nice to have a week of actual relaxation. It’s incredible how much work they’ve put in to the house and it’s so special to spend time with them. They are one of the most amazing families I’ve ever known, so our time at the lake is always great. We even got to celebrate with fireworks on the lake- it is so refreshing to be back in the Midwest and spend time with friends and family.
After the relaxing week at the lake, we crammed about as much as possible in to a 48-hour trip to Indianapolis (and Dayton!) My sister graduated from college in May so we had her graduation open house. It was so nice because we got to see our friends, neighbors, and family (some of our family even came from Ohio which was such a treat). After the party we had TWO weddings to go to. Then on Sunday, we drove over to Dayton to see my grandparents and flew back to DC from there. It was a quick trip but so much fun.
So there’s my recap of trips up until now…and I’m so excited because I have a big trip coming up this weekend! Stay tuned….
