Life Lately, According to my iPhone

Life has been pretty great lately. After all the traveling, things slowed down a bit, and I’m able to think clearly again. It’s so very nice.

We had a wedding last weekend in Atlanta which was a blast, and we have another wedding this weekend, which should be so so so fun. I have come down with a cold (thanks to the lady who was coughing up her lungs without covering her mouth on the plane last weekend…you suck), but I don’t care, I’m having fun this weekend no matter what.

Last weekend, we got a chance to visit with Matt after his first week of chemo, and I was so glad to be able to see him. After hearing about his stage 1 diagnosis, my mind was telling me “Yay! That’s good news as far as cancer is concerned.” But my heart was broken. Hearing this news so soon after Jake’s passing, I just don’t know how to describe the sadness I feel. And knowing about his chemo treatments, 5 days a week, 6 hours each day, one week on, two weeks off, 4 rounds…god, that’s going to be so rough on him and his family. I’ve been thinking about them nonstop, crying most mornings and fighting complete mental breakdown some days.

We also got to visit with Jake’s parents last weekend, and man, that was fun. Timmy had them dying laughing at some amazing Barbara stories. If only for 30 minutes, I’m glad we got them to laugh.

A few weekends ago, Timmy planned the best weekend in Lake Mary. We drove super fast cars at the Orlando Grand Prix where I was the only chick on the course and everyone was driving poorly (as in running into me and others. It’s not bumper cars…no wonder, since they were all dudes). We went to the Central Florida Zoo and were surprised at how sad zoos are once you’re an adult. The animals trapped in cages, unable to move very far…you don’t see that at all when you’re a child. And the weekend before that, we enjoyed a lovely day at Pass-A-Grille beach in St. Pete. God I love living here.

Here’s what life has been like the last month or so. Enjoy.

Life Lately, According to My iPhone

Ok, so some of the pix are from October, but it’s been a slow few weeks of picture taking. I can’t lie, it’s been nice to have some down time. But now that I’m moving to St. Pete in two short weeks (O.M.F.G.), and Christmas and NYE are right around the corner, shit’s about to get real, real fast, again. This is what life was like the last month or so. Enjoy!

On our 2nd to last wedding weekend of 2013, we traveled to Atlanta for an old friend of Timmy’s wedding in Greensboro, GA. Not only did I not know where that was, but it was in the middle of nowhere on this gorgeous farm that was just breathtaking. Yes, our shuttle arrived late to the venue and we were the last ones to arrive to the wedding and had to walk IN FRONT OF THE ENTIRE GUEST LIST, including the WEDDING PARTY, in order to get to our seats, but hey, embarrassment is my middle name. Drama ensued later on the dance floor, but I chose to focus on the heat lamps because it was 32 degrees outside and the beautiful sunset instead.

Our last wedding of 2013, we traveled to Key Largo, FL for one of my oldest friend’s wedding, Bailey and Nick. I’ve known Bailey since Sunday School at Christ the King in Atlanta, where we met as 5 year olds. Later, when I was kicked out of school, I saw her in the cafeteria of Sutton, and we relaunched a friendship that created so many memories that I hold dear to this day. We also ended up at NYU together for college. Craziness. Nick and Bailey really know how to throw a party, let me tell you, because their wedding band was the most fun I’ve had in a long long time. They were so L.A., it was ridiculous. Plus, Bailey was the HOTTEST bride I’ve ever seen. Rock it girl.

Timmy was in Atlanta for a week, so I took pictures of Floyd doing cute things.

Thanksgiving weekend was a complete blast. We spent time with my family, including my nieces, at my sister and bro-in-law’s new house in Athens. It’s holy shit incredible. Like those were the exact words Timmy and I used when we saw the house. We celebrated the twins’ 3rd birthday a few days early (it’s actually on Dec 2), ate some delicious food, and loved on each other 🙂 We also spent a lot of time with Timmy’s family, which was so nice, since we hadn’t seen his nieces and nephew in MONTHS. We celebrated one of my best friend’s birthday (Alia’s) a little late at their lovely new home in Sandy Springs. We heart Raymond and Alia, they are the greatest. It was beautiful fall weather, and exactly what the holiday of Thanksgiving is all about.
