Around the World in 17 Days

Well not quite the whole way around the world, but close! It has been a long 17 days, but I had an amazing time during my stint in the states (with the only bummer having been that Barr couldnt make it too!) If you follow me on Instagram, you have been privy to some of the travels and subsequent celebrations, but I’ll do a bit of a recap over the next few days (in between last minute…okay second training for the Abu Dhabi triathlon – why did I decide to that again?? Super screwed on that front – and recovering from jet lag).

The journeys began in Houston, where I was in a good friend from college’s wedding. Thankfully, my parents live in Houston as well…and my grandmother (Mema!) came to town…and my dog (Dash!) is currently being lovingly taken care of by my parents as well. A recipe for a great week.

Following Elise and Evans’ spectacular wedding (more details to come…), I headed to the west coast to visit two of my favorite people in the world – they graciously welcomed me into their fabulous new home…and on the week of their anniversary no less! I love seeing Allison and Mike – you know those friends that just make you smile just thinking of them? That’s these two 🙂

I mean, LA - are you real??

From Los Angeles, I hopped on the red eye to Nashville to celebrate a bachelorette party! I am my dear, lovely, amazing friend Sarah Craig’s (double name, yall!) matron (ugh, can’t I stay a maid? Matron sounds old) of honor in her wedding this May. Seven of her friends met up in the Music City for a weekend of loving on the bride to be – it was an amazing way to end my trip to the states 🙂
