back to blogging

I'm finally back to blogging!

Nathan and I just returned today from our trip to Ohio for his brother's high school graduation. We had a really great time, full of relaxing and spending time with his wonderful family. A few highlights of the trip:

  • going to Toledo and hanging out by Lake Erie
  • visiting the Toledo Zoo (the otters were adorable)
  • listening to a lot of Stevie Wonder, The National, Michael Jackson, and Elton John
  • surprise birthday gifts from the Drydens
  • going to the neighborhood pool
  • playing basketball with Nathan and his awesome little brother Isaac
  • throwing a 200-person party for Jared's graduation
  • staying up late chatting with Nathan's parents
  • watching Disney's Robin Hood
  • spending 8 hours in the car with Nathan each way

Now that we're back in Nashville, it's time to settle into a normal routine..... except for today, of course, cause it's my 21st birthday! Tonight I'm going out to dinner at Margot Cafe & having a fancy drink with my meal. I'm so excited! I wish all of my friends were in town, though (such as Stephanie & Sarah!!!).

I'm happy to be back home with my darling kittens and my fabulous roommate. This place definitely feels like home. Here are a few pictures of my apartment! Come visit this summer.... the pool is open finally. =)

The lovely kitchen, complete with dishwasher & kitten towels

The dining room... which is quickly becoming my favorite room
