I have been totally MIA from the blog world lately, and its been kind of nice. I survived a full week of traveling and used the time to disconnect from the internet for a little bit. I thought I would check in today with a summary of the past week. All the craziness started last Saturday. I flew to Michigan to meet up with Rob and his family (he had flown to Ohio 2 days earlier, and they were driving up to Michigan where his grandfather lives). Before leaving, I got an 11 mile run in.
We had some warm weather in Baltimore, and it was in the 50s when I went out for my run. It was nice to run in shorts in December! My flight was a little delayed, but I met Rob’s sister and her husband at the Detroit airport around 5:30. We met up with Rob and his parents at a hotel around 7, had a quick dinner of Jimmy John’s, and exchanged gifts, and then headed to hang out with his grandpa for a little bit.
We were planning to hang out most of the time at Rob’s grandpa’s house, but he lost power for a few hours on Sunday. We broke out some Great Lake’s Christmas Ale in the hotel lobby while watching some football.
Later, once the power was back on, we did a beer tasting. We ended up tasting 12 beers, including a wide variety of types of beers. I brought a 6 pack of Resurrection from Baltimore, which is brewed at Brewer’s Art Pub.
It was really fun just hanging out and trying some beers that I would typically never drink.
Then on Tuesday we flew back to Baltimore for the night. It was a really quick turnaround- we landed at 3pm, made it to church at 4, and then my parents and sister came over for dinner and gifts at 6.
At 8 am my parents and sister picked us up and the 5 of us made the drive up to Long Island to spend a few days with my family. We got in around 2, and were at my aunt and uncle’s by 3 for Christmas.
While it was nice to be away, it feels SO good to be home and relaxing. Rob and I are finally getting to exchange our Christmas gifts today. I hope everyone else had a nice holiday!
Did anyone else have a busy week of traveling?
