Home sweet Minnesota

My Minnesota visit was so rejuvenating. I love that place (and the people that live there) with all of my heart. The week flew by! And it wasn't even sad leaving because I'll be back in July to stand next to little Megs on her wedding day! It is great to have relationships that are able to pick right back up like you never left. 
I think July is going to be a good month. Visitors, 4th of July in Maine, Cape Cod... Let the fun begin!

Who has awesome in-laws?

That whole "ugh, the in-laws" thing where people don't like to spend time with their in-laws... 
I will never understand that because my in-laws rock. Seriously. 

AJ is leaving on a 9 day away series, and all of the places they are going are way too far for me to drive to.
 (Apparently Ohio is in the "Eastern League?" Not sure who looked at a map and decided that made sense)

I started to write a list of things I was going to do to fill my time:
1. Venture 30 minutes to Target.
2. Donate blood.
3. Get a book and read the entire thing.
4. This sounds boring, right? 

So my in-laws decided they would fly me AND Willa home to Minnesota for the week! 

I haven't been home since December and I can't wait to see all of my lovely friends and family.
Here we come Minny! Oh how I have missed you.

Home #5

We have settled into our new home! This is the 5th place we've lived since we got married in October. FIFTH. 
One lesson I've learned this baseball season, never get comfortable or "expect" to be anywhere. This season- we "expected" to be in either Iowa or Florida. See what I mean? 

AJ is gone on a 7 day away series right now. They had home games this past weekend and I met some awesome girlfriends. Now they all just need to come back and visit for every home series. ;)
We brought next to nothing, so luckily the place we are renting is furnished. However, I had to leave my Keurig in the trunk of my car in Florida (getting shipped to MN) and for those of you who know my coffee addiction... I had a hard time parting with that bad boy. We bought a french press and using pinterest recipes, I just made a big batch of some rockin' cold press! Live and learn.

The town we live in is adorable. It's about 20 minutes from the field, but well worth the drive. Willa and I venture out every day for a walk on a beautiful trail right next to the river. One of these days I'll dust off my DSLR and stop using only my iPhone for pictures.
