Weekend Adventures

These past two weekends have been absolutely wonderful. 
Two weekends ago (Valentine's Day weekend) I got to see the love of my life! Corny, but true. Kuchanda came to see me and we stayed at an AirBnB in Chicago. It was cold (and by cold, I mean cold.) So, we stayed in a lot, only adventuring out to see the Cambodian American Heritage Museum and to get donuts. Yeah, I know. But they were probably the best donuts that I have ever had. If you are ever near Glazed and Infused- just trust me, go. 

So, a lot of our plans to explore downtown were thwarted by the extreme cold and long lines (two  hours to go up the Skydeck. TWO HOURS.) Instead we got Shamrock Shakes, went back to the apartment to watch Sherlock, order pizza in, and cuddle - it was awesome!

And then this past weekend I was in California! It was so wonderful. I didn't realize how much winter weather was getting me down - a dose of 65 degrees is what I needed. I was in Lake Arrowhead, CA for a discernment retreat; it was up in the mountains about an hour and half away from LA. It was so gorgeous. I have never been somewhere so pretty - we stayed in these cottages that weren't too far from the lake. Also, the conference itself was wonderful. I met a lot of cool people with awesome stories and ideas. 

And probably one of my favorite pictures of all time... all the Historic Peace Churches participants in the photo booth together. 

Back in PA this coming weekend for more adventures! It is travel season, y'all!

Dang girl, you're travelling *all* over the country! It's too bad you didn't get to do too much in Chicago, but at least you tried the donuts ;) And I can't imagine getting to experience 65 degree weather right now- that would be heaven.

Ooh, I'll definitely have to try that donut place next time I'm in Chicago! And so glad you got to escape to warmth for a few days! I can't wait to head down to Texas at the end of the month! xo

Oh so beautiful! I would die to go to California right now, hehe. And that donut place sounds divine - not to mention, I'm dying over the name ;-)
