Best Week Ever Part 1: A Surprise Trip Home

Oh, hey, blog. It’s been a hot sec.

The reason why I’ve been so MIA is because I had the best week ever. 

Last week, work gave me the opportunity to fly home to Pennsylvania for 2 days! We have a client in my hometown that we needed to meet with, so my coworker and I hopped on a plane to the Northeast.


do you love this high-quality Snapchat pic?

I didn’t say anything because I was planning to surprise my parents & friends. Keeping it quiet was killing me! I kept feeling like I was going to let the secret slip.

My parents weren’t home when I got in to town, so I let myself into the house and was sitting on the couch when they got home. Needless to say, they were in shock. I kept saying, “Everything’s okay! Don’t have a heart attack!” Haha.


Home sweet home!

Though I’ll be traveling home again next month for Memorial Day Weekend, it was so, so great to spend some time at home.

When I wasn’t working, I spent time with my best friend…


Grabbed coffee at my old cafe…

Ate the best home-cooked meal (thanks, Mom!)…

Salad with carrots, tomatoes & artichokes, roasted brussels and broccoli, beef & cheddar macaroni, and marinated grilled salmon. Full belly, for sure.

And got ice cream at my favorite farm dairy.

I'm sure Austin's fancy artisan ice cream is good, but this stuff is what I'm all about.

It was a super quick trip home, but it made me so happy! That was part 1 of my best week ever. Part 2 is coming soon, and made my heart just as full. I’m feeling like a very lucky girl!
