I drove up to New York last weekend to complete stage three of my move and the weekend turned into a bit of a love letter weekend in the city. I didn’t intend to spend a magical weekend in the city filled with new and old favorite experiences, but that’s exactly what happened.
I wish the story that I have to tell was as dramatic as this title implies but…it’s not. As you know I’ve moved home to the DC area and catapulted myself into DC life during arguably the biggest weekend of the year. I couldn’t move home without at least attempting to brave the cold and crowds on Inauguration Day right??
After one of the busiest weeks of my life, I’ve finally made it to DC and I must say I’ve had quite the welcome! Last night began the flurry of various inaugural balls and I was fortunate enough to attend the Black Tie and Boots Ball hosted by the Texas State Society. Traditionally, the attire for the ball is just as is indicated in its title – men and women wear tuxedos and ball gowns with their cowboy boots, making it oh-so-easy to dance the night away.
It’s no secret that I’ve been craving the South like nobody’s business. Lucky for me I was able to visit a TON of Southern cities over the Christmas holiday. I also got the chance to be super geeky and take photos at a few different state lines – one of the EXCELLENT perks of traveling by car (example 1 above).
I bet you can tell which trip was my favorite of 2012. I literally have not been able to stop talking/writing about the awesomeness that is Park City, Utah!
