After the Boston Marathon bombings and all the craziness that followed, I honestly didn’t know what to write here. I tried to find the right things to say, but everything came out wrong. The truth is, I don’t know what to say, and I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to articulate my feelings properly about everything that happened. So, if you were wondering where I’ve been the last two weeks, the truth is, I just didn’t know what to say so I’ve decided not to say anything.
Aside from everything that’s been happening in Boston, I recently calculated all the miles I’ve driven in the past month. In 30 days, I had driven approximately 3,885+ miles, enough to drive across the country one way and part of the way back. I’ve been to Ohio for a wedding, Pennsylvania for a bachelorette party and North Carolina for a family reunion. When I recently recounted my travels to my mother, she commented, “Wow, you must really like your friends.”
When I moved to South Carolina, I vowed not to miss the life events of my friends and family just because of distance. This meant 12 hour road trips and plane rides, but it was all worth it. Since then I’ve stuck to that pledge to myself and have yet to miss out big things like weddings and family events. If your kid is turning one or you’re getting hitched, I will be there.
Here’s some photos from my travels over the past month. I hope you enjoy and please know I’m back in the blogging swing!
