I write this sitting in the living room of RSlo's parents home in French Lick, Indiana (it's a small town whose claim to fame is being the home of Larry Bird- the Celtics player). We got in this afternoon after our fun filled time in NYC. We met up in NYC, me coming from Boston where I had a fantastic time with my good friend from grad school Lauren. We ate good food, watched Inception, (phenomenal movie if you haven't seen it) and just caught up on our lives post grad school. We hadn't seen each other in two years so we had a lot of catching up to do. From there I hopped on the Greyhound bus down to NYC (which took me back to my college days, since this was always my mode of transportation when going home) and experienced quintessential NYC summer: hot, humid, and increasingly disgusting the moment you stepped into a subway station. RSlo and I went to a Yankee game on Friday night and got caught in a huge rainstorm in the middle of the 5th inning. We were convinced the game would be rained out but by the time we got back to our apartment the game had restarted. The Yankees ended up winning 7-1. At least the rain cooled off the heat.
Saturday we headed to Long Island for an enagagement party for two of my good friends Karen and Josh. RSlo was a champ about the whole thing not knowing anyone except the couple who was getting married, but managed to befriend the fiance of the maid of honor and chatted with him the entire afternoon. It was nice to see college friends and catch up although once again it was SUPER humid and hot. Sadly I forgot to take pictures at the party especially since I had on a really cute dress and managed to do my hair really nice and makeup was done right. I always like to capture those moments.
The rest of our time was spent dodging the rain that came on Sunday and catching up with friends and my family. We spent Sunday evening having dinner with my mom and walking around the city. I swear I notice that I am turning into my mom more and more with her quirks, facial expressions, and sarcasm. The trip was super quick and we found ourselves leaving this morning for Indiana. We're here in Indiana until Friday. I love spending time here because I really do get to relax and unwind. I sleep a lot, read books and eat really well. We're going to see some of RSlo's friends and go back to our alma mater and visit our mentors that are still there. Before RSlo I didn't think I would visit Indiana at all after graduating and now I find myself coming back yearly and loving it.
Next post I promise to include this pictures I have taken thus far. I will try to be dilligent and post as often as possible.
