Life Update time!
So as I told you last week, this past weekend I was on a little getaway with Jeremy to his very hippie-ish + super chilled out hometown. We were there to celebrate his 25th birthday and get all our friends together to catch up. I always forget how much I love it there when I am back in the city, I forget how wonderfully secluded it feels, how fresh the air is, and how green and lush the forestry is! Whenever I leave I always tell myself "I am going to be back here soon!" and then it'll be months before I make it back over. It's so close to home but yet it feels so far, it feels so different from the lifestyle I live and I just love how life is lived over there, its so much more peaceful.
Anyways, lets put aside from my lifestyle-envy and move onto what we actually did while we were away!
The first day we got there we went over to Jer's brothers house for a BBQ/birthday party event. We cooked up a super yummy cedar planked BBQ'd salmon, veggie skewers, chicken skewers, and a delicious avocado salad - there was so much food there we could have all had 3 or 4 helpings each, which made for A LOT of leftovers! People really went all out with the food, it was pretty impressive and I ended up feeling a bit lame with the veggie skewers I had made.
The party was a lot of fun, we all just hung out, chatted throughout the night and I even got to meet some people Jer knew from High School. The night came to a close when it became to late for any of us to be totally awake, coherent and sane, so we slumped off to bed.
Here is what I wore:
The next day Jer and I went on short but sweet hike and again saw a spectacular view which I unfortunately do not have a photo of, but it was really beautiful! This hike was really short but much less enjoyable than the 6 hour hike we did because it was all stairs. Hikes that are made up completely of stairs are just so difficult, my legs were killing me - they felt all wobbly and weak! I just kept thinking "I did a 6 hour hike and cannot do a 30 minute hike? Seriously?!"
We finally got back home around 7-8 pm and were completely zonked. I think that's one of the best sleeps either of us has ever had. I very well may have snored. Even Jeremy could have snored and I honestly couldn't complain because I was so out cold I never would've heard. Really, someone could have been yelling in my face and I probably would've just kept on snoozin'.
Hope you all are having a good week thus far!
