Yesterday was of course Thanksgiving and (some of you know) my birthday so we spent lots of time visiting family and eating good food. Michael and I played volleyball in the evening with my brother and group of friends. Michael bought me a new flash for our camera for my birthday! I am super stoked to learn how to use it! He got me the Canon 430EX II and a lulu lemon climbing tank and pants--They make the cutest and most comfortable workout clothes around. Some of you know what I'm talking about... :)
The rest of the weekend we are going to work on unpacking more boxes and trying to get settled before Michael leaves for Philly early Monday morning--back to work for him as usual. It has been nice having him around the last two weeks.
I have really mixed feelings about settling into an apartment in Salt Lake City. The outdoor scene is almost unbeatable, but I really miss the culture and beauty of New England. Cost of living is really cheap here which is nice with Michael having just graduated and a new babe on the way. We also love being close to our families, but will miss the experiences of relying on and building familial-like relationships with friends and neighbors.
Well, I have lots of unpacking, cleaning and organizing to do! Just wanted to give a quick update. I will try to get Cancun pictures posted soon!
Until then, here is a little teaser to get you excited for the rest of the photos:
