Here’s to happy endings.
This week was a bit treacherous but the weekend more than made up for it.
Thanks to my amazing co-workers, Thursday ended up with a BANG! and I was able to pack up all my things for the move on Friday. They even watched my puppy.
Friday came, I was able to move in and establish that, hey, this place is kind of neat. Wookie loves it too. I think lake life is going to be amazing.
Friday night was fantastic. After getting unloaded, I was able to see my friend Nate and go to a Rusted Root concert in Ferndale. Nate lives in a cabin in the woods in Marquette with no electricity, he is working filming a documentary right now. Truly one of the kindest, brightest minds I know and a dear, dear friend.
Then I was able to spend the day unpacking and settling in on Saturday before heading to Detroit for an amazing reunion with an old friend.
Lilo, who now lives in Chicago. We used to hang out when we were barely 21. It was fun, but in those days the things you have in common are more of, YAY, we’re in college and like to drink. It’s nice being able to really connect on another level now that we are older and realize that we have more in common than being kids hahaha. I would say it was one of the best nights I’ve had in a long time.I had never flown a kite before and he helped me out. We flew kites on the rooftop of an apartment on Michigan Ave in Detroit until the sun set. It was a blast.
Then it was off to Green Dot Stables for dinner. I haven’t had ANY appetite lately, but I ate 3 sliders (lobster, quinoa/kale & tempeh) and an entire basket of truffle fries. The best meal I’ve had in a long time.
That was one of the best nights I’ve had in awhile.
Living on a lake = access to fun sports.
I bought 2 kayaks. One for me and one whoever occupies the guest room! I’ve already got visitors lined up for an entire month.
It’s going to be an awesome summer and I can’t wait.
