So here's the deal - for two months, I was kind of lame. During recovery, I did a lot of resting, and don't get me wrong, I still am being very conscious of that. But really, I was ready to get the heck out of town and have some fun. Kevin and I are used to constantly being on the go, or "yoloing" if you will. Luckily, the last few weekends have been filled with quick little getaways that have rejuvenated my body and soul! Below are some of my fave pics from my Michigan and NYC trips, and although this past weekend was filled with 12+ hour work days, I was able to see two of my best friends in the world Saturday night, so I'll count that as a successful "getaway" as well!
I will surely be clinging to these getaway memories this week. Tomorrow I head back to University of Cincinnati Medical Center for my next and final (and way easier than the last) surgical procedure, my "exchange" surgery. I'll be posting about it later this week once I am back amongst the living and off the pain meds. So today, cheers to enjoying weekend memories & continuing the journey to a happy & healthy life!
First up: Our trip to Crystal Lake to celebrate the wonderful matriarch of the McKnight family's 80th birthday! No one deserves a bday bash more than her.
Next up: NYC! We took a family trip to celebrate Olivia & Kyle graduating high school and all had a blast. From baseball games, bridal gowns & country concerts, it was a jam-packed weekend in the city.
And finally, a work weekend in Chicago! The weekend was filled with work, but once it all was over Saturday night, I met my two BFFs Whitney and Lori for dinner & drinks at Quartino. I swear we could have sat there chatting all night! Nothing in the world is better than catching up with best girlfriends. 'Til next time! :)
