D and I usually don’t travel much in the fall. It’s his busy season at work, he can’t take off and works most weekends. That, in addition to season tickets for USF keeps us home during the fall.
But this year, I’m taking a trip by myself. I’m going to see one of my best friends up in Indiana next weekend. Brittney and I met 5 years ago , my first year teaching. We became workout partners, roommates and a developed a friendship we knew would be lifelong. She moved a year after we met and we’ve never lost touch. We usually see each other twice a year and talk once a week. She comes down once a year and I go up once as well. Last year I went in December and was able to see snow! I planned my trip this year around the birth of her baby boy. Shortly after I left in December, she learned she was pregnant with baby #2. When we saw each other in March her belly was growing and we knew it was a boy. When I get there next week Keegan will be 8 weeks old. I can’t wait to hold him and love on him. I also can’t wait to see big sister Kaidyn and their new house (it was in the last stages of building when I was there last December). Oh and did I mention how excited I am to experience real fall weather? An actual change of season? I’m looking forward to that too!
