Back to being gone. The BF and I were first in California, gallivanting to LA and then down to San Diego for Kendal's awesome wedding. Then I jetted to Idaho for a fast few days in my beloved state. Followed by meeting up with the BF again in Kansas City for a wedding and two baseball games!
I'll backtrack later hopefully to talk more about California and Missouri but for now I'll show you a bit of my trip to Idaho.
My parents greeted me at the airport, and they came with the most beautiful bouquet of roses.
I had time to do a lot of the things I love most about Boise. As well as things from my childhood. Like taking a quick walk up Camels Back to catch a view of the city.
Indie Made (and buy me that onsie for my firstborn!), and stroll into Mixed Greens just a few blocks over. I had to buy something at each store because they were just filled with adorable gifts, amazing lotions and soaps, and an amazing bag (if anyone wants to get me a gift ;)) that was perfection.
I flipped through old family photos. Shed a few tears over how empty the house felt without the presense of "The Poodle".
Being a gentleman and stealing Christmas decorations to woo the girls with.
Sitting on the chair lift with dad.
|Yup, We made him wear a skunk costume. He was NOT happy.|
There were also some gems like these that had me rolling on the floor laughing.
I saw the new Boise Tower....which if you had any idea of how long this has been in the making, you'd be amazed too!
My final day. I squeezed in a run alongside the beautiful Boise River.
made store where I also saw (unforunately had to run so didn't get to talk to) Aunie from Aunie Sauce.
The next morning I was up bright and early to head to Missouri for round two of the wedding trip. Leaving Boise was hard. It always it. And it just seems to get harder with each trip.
This past weekend I was in a funk. Sleeping every chance I could get (granted I've been fighting a cold and we pulled an all nighter coming back to DC), and just feeling mopey. It took me awhile to realize it was the DC Blechs settling in. Luckily, the weekend is always greeted with Monday, and with my transition to the new job in full swing, work is busy and distracting, so not much time to mope or think about where else I would like to be.
Boise, you have my heart and in so many ways.
