Life as of Lately

Well hello. It's been awhile. With being out of town in early October to getting my wisdom teeth removed last weekend (ugh) - I've been quite MIA, but I'm back!
 


Life has been pretty hectic, but really when is it not? I spent a long and lovely weekend in Buffalo (my hometown) surrounded by my brother, sister-in-law and their 2 adorable kids - Mia + Andrew. It was seriously the perfect weekend that consisted of none other than family time. I loved not having an itinerary and truly just going with the flow. Typically, when I travel to Buffalo I have an agenda - I'm usually there for a reason and with family that want to cross off restaurants and activities from their day. This time was different and it was more fun. I loved getting the chance to play with my little niece + nephew, drink a few (or more) pumpkin brews and just relax. I miss them already + am already figuring out when I'll schedule my next trip. I again, plan on not having an itinerary. It's totally worth it.

A few days after the trip to the B-lo, I had my wisdom teeth out. Boy, was that rough. As I type this, I still feel the tinges of pain creep in my jaw - definitely not the best feeling in the world. I'm definitely sick of the whole liquid diet thing and I cannot wait to bite into a slice of cheesy pizza (I was definitely contemplating pureeing pizza. Ya. It got that real). Nonetheless, a few days off for some R&R were definitely what the doctor called for and I did just that.

This week is devoted to resting and taking it easy. Sometimes it's nice to slow down and really savor the moments. Err....the moments you can eat real food.
