Winter “Break”

It’s absolutely crazy how fast the past month has gone by! Before I get back on the road tomorrow, I wanted to share a few recent happenings through some pictures. Between working from home and spending time with family over the holidays, I managed to squeeze in a few adventures over my winter break. I am also beginning to plan another month-long trip to Europe this summer– stay tuned for details. Tomorrow, I am heading to Georgetown College in Lexington, Kentucky, which is a school of only about 900 students! I am looking forward to meeting the women there and helping them with recruitment training/Formal Recruitment. After that, I am off to Baldwin Wallace University and Ohio State University! Can’t wait!

That weekend I went to San Francisco to visit friends and attend the infamous SantaCon. Somehow after a travel nightmare involving canceled flights and closed BART stations, I actually got there!

View from our cousins’ house in Seattle! We had an amazing time eating great food, drinking amazing wine, and doing some sightseeing around the city.

We went to the EMP (Experience Music Project) Museum in Seattle, which had recording studios, lots of music history, and a huge display of guitars!

The main reason we made the trip up to Seattle was to see our cousin, Jeffrey, perform as Ralphie Parker in “A Christmas Story” at the 5th Avenue Theater. Last year, Jeffrey played “Oliver” in the same theater, so it was great to see him back at it! He even signed autographs and took pictures with fans after the show. (#famouscousin) We are so proud of him and I can’t wait to see what amazing things he does next.

After a few days in the city, we took the ferry across Puget Sound to get to the Weber cabin on Treasure Island! Getting 10 people there was an adventure in itself.

But the view was all worth it. We spent a few days at the cabin watching movies, eating lots of Dungeness crab, playing plenty of ping pong, and lighting off HUGE fireworks on the beach!

We got to stop by our cousin Blaine’s cabin on Puget Sound too, which was a highlight for me. They had thousands of oysters right in front of their deck and we got to shuck and eat a few while we were there! There’s nothing like oysters that fresh. Overall, it was an incredible trip, and though I don’t miss the cold, I hope to get back to Seattle soon!
