I know it's pretty cruel to write a post about the meaning of life and then just disappear for weeks.
Some of you were probably wondering if I retreated to a secluded mountaintop or lake to ponder my existence and/or write the sequel to Walden.
I did not.
Rather, I was busy with work, attended a wedding in Seattle, went to corporate training in Chicago, and visited my grandmother in the hospital.
Yup, my grandma fell and broke her hip. Poor thing. She had a hip replacement and is doing remarkably well. That old Swedish lady really is strong as an ox! Prayers are definitely appreciated.
On to happier things...
The highlight of past few weeks was visiting Seattle. We stayed with some high school friends of the Mr's and had a blast at his friend's wedding.
One of the best things about being married is the merging of the friends. Through Thanksgivings and other trips to the Northwest, I've become friends with the Mr's High School friends and have such a great time hanging out with them.
Here we are, Squinty in Seattle

Waterfront dinner with a friend. Being goofy.

With Stacy, a HS friend of the Mr's. Love her!
(BTW - Stacy is an amazing graphic designer and makes stunning wedding invitations, placecards, programs, stationary, etc. She was once even featured on Style Me Pretty. She works with Brides across the country and you can check her out on her website here!)
I'm so glad you didn't abandon me because I've got a bunch of great posts coming up about our kitchen remodel, wedding album, closet organization, and much much more!
