Hello lovelies! Life has been so wonderful lately! So many exciting things have happened this past week; it’s been so great. As some of you know, this past weekend my brother and I went to Los Angeles to meet up with his fiancee, Jessa, who was flying from the Philippines to America. This was her first time to the US and her first time meeting me. We had a great, short, whirlwind of a weekend in California. Monday and Tuesday I took off of work to get Jessa settled at my place and to have some fun times around Milwaukee.
Monday we went to the beach/lakefront. It was cloudy when we first got there, but then the sun came out and it ended up being an absolutely gorgeous day.
Tuesday we made our way to the Mitchell Park Domes. Jessa absolutely LOVED it! My brother got her an i-Phone so that she could skype and talk with her friends and family back home and also so that she could take pictures. As we both learned, she really loves taking pictures. She took so many at the Domes…and I took some, too! 🙂
Sadly, after my five-day weekend, it was time for me to go back to work. But, I had a really great three day week back at work and got so much stuff done. I felt really great because two people were out in my department PLUS I had all the work to catch up on while I was out, so I was essentially doing the work of three people! Oy! I was a busy little beaver, but by the end of the week I felt super proud of the work that I got done! Yay me!
Friday was a HUGE day for me! My best fraaaaaand, Rachel, who had gone to New York for the WHOLE SUMMER for an internship, was coming home!!! After work, I headed straight to the airport to welcome her back home! It was such a great reuniting, plus, she made a ‘big boom’ entrance, which made it that much more enjoyable. I can’t tell you how good it feels to have this girl back after three months away. She is one person that truly just gets me for me. I missed her like crazy and I can’t wait to pick up where we left off and start making some more fun memories together!!
The rest of Friday evening was spent with the hubster (since Rachel had to go home with her mom :(), but it was a great evening nonetheless! We took a nice walk together and watched Modern Family, one of our absolute FAVORITE shows!
Saturday morning I woke up early, took a nice walk, then went over by my parents’ for coffee. We caught up a bit, which was so nice. Then they mentioned how they had tentative plans to go with Travis and Jessa to Cedarburg, a cute little town close-by to where we live, that afternoon and mentioned that I should come along. I jumped at the opportunity. So we spent our afternoon in Cedarburg! It was absolutely perfect. The weather was so gorgeous and we had such a great time with one another. Jessa is just the sweetest little thing and I can already see her starting to get more comfortable with the family! We went in the shops, got coffee, and went to the Covered Bridge park.
I got this awesome thing in one of the shops, too!
What an absolutely perfect day we had together! My family means the world to me and I’m so glad we could have that time together. Life has been so great lately and I have so much to be thankful for right now. Yippee!!
What about you? What do you have to be thankful for in your life right now?
