In April I got to see my first professional baseball game to celebrate Christopher’s dad’s birthday. We saw the Cleveland Indians play the Detroit Tigers. I don’t care how cheesy this sounds but every time I get to mark something off my bucket list it’s such a treat! Especially since I got to experience it with some of my favorite people. Here’s to many more birthdays for Christopher’s dad, Ken! Continue reading “CLEVELAND INDIANS GAME”
Well folks, I think it’s safe to say Christopher is now “kayak pregnant” and I expect him to deliver a kayak in our garage any day now. The idea was conceived (see what I did there?) one Saturday in July when we spent part of the day out on the river in Mendota, Virginia. Adventure Mendota was recommended to me by a few of my coworkers and it was definitely worth the trip and $33 each. When you think of the cost of a single kayak it’s such a great price. The team at Adventure Mendota takes care of you from start to finish making the entire experience an exercise in relaxation more than actual exercise. Chris said you could honestly just float down the river without really having to paddle. Don’t let me fool you, though! There were a couple spots along the river where you had to watch out for rocks or you could get stuck. I was so distracted by the scenery that I might have gotten stuck a time or two but it was easy to push myself out and back on the river to cruise!
I have a confession to make… I can’t stand the taste of beer. I think it’s entirely too bitter and in 5 years of legally drinking (never mind the years before that) I have yet to find a beer that doesn’t turn my stomach. When I was in college I would go to a party and think, “Why do people love this stuff so much?” It could also be because I didn’t care for the smell of it stuck to the floor in a fraternity house but that’s a different story. Then my Grandbig in my sorority gave me my first taste of hard cider and I’ve been hopelessly devoted ever since. Continue reading “GYPSY CIRCUS AND HIGH VOLTAGE”
