a week with my parents.

last friday morning:

[J] & I got in the car, got our dunkin, and he drove me halfway to my parent’s house..

say hello to Galena, IL: the cutest little town near the mississippi river. with wineries, breweries, boutiques, restaurants, and art galleries. me + Galena .. a love, love relationship!

then my mother & I drove to my beloved hometown. and here is what has happened since I arrived …

I was greeted by my fur-baby: meeko. [I adopted him 5 years ago, he currently temporarily lives with my parents].

then I had the joy of attending 4 baseball games; the 1st four days of my visit [my parents “house” two players this summer]. cheers!

we went on a family walk through the woods. [I had my first TICK encounter. I might not enter the woods again. true].

we enjoyed a night OUT.

we went out for mexican + margarita pitchers [please note: my father’s zip-up philly’s jersey. can you say throwback?]

and father’s day,of course, at the baseball park.

now what: an entirely new level of excitement to my hometown …the boyfriend, mr. [J] is coming to town today. to visit for a couple days.

then we’re headed back to the land of abraham lincoln [illinois].


this will serve as my “week in photos” post, but I will post a recap of the weekend on monday. so everyone …

have a grrrrreat weekend.


welcome summer :)
