Here are some highlights from the past few weeks:
My sister's wedding!
It was a beautiful southern wedding. Loved it!
(more pics to come . . .)
A fabulous date with the bf to see Cavalia.
Cavalia is a Cirque du Soleil-type show, but with horses (people too). It was fabulous! It was filled with acrobatics and even the horses would "dance". I was amazed by what the horses could do - choreographed dance moves, running out to their exact spots on stage, tricks and all.
After Cavalia we went to Craft - Atlanta and had a delicious dinner of braised beef short ribs, sunchokes, squash and pancetta risotto and pear crisp with toasted almond ice cream. Delish!
Lilly, as I've affectionately named her, was my Christmas surprise. Since my sister was on her honeymoon and it was just me and my parents, I didn't know what to expect. Imagine my surprise when I run downstairs and find a beautiful pink Townie just waiting for me! I was so excited and had the biggest smile on my face. I live in a little town just outside Orlando that has streets lined with shops and restaurants and I am just a short walk from town, but now I can bike - and in style I might add. I have a basket that hooks on as well. I'm in love!! I also got many other wonderful gifts and surprises that I am so thankful for.
As for the rest of my break, I enjoyed lots of shopping, good meals, fun times with family and friends, movies, and time with my pets - Rory the black lab and kitties Molly and Griffin. I was able to be at home in GA for two weeks, which is the longest amount of time consecutively spent there in quite a few years. I loved every moment!
I spent the past weekend in Bonita Springs with the bf ringing in the New Year and I am now ready for the challenges and adventures ahead. Cheers to 2010!
