Adventure is out there!

Sometimes you fly in an airplane. And sometimes that airplane flies by a thunderstorm and the lights seem to play to the sound of your music and it’s awesome and crazy and bumpy and the coolest thing you’ve ever seen.

A long time ago I did make it to New York (last fall) and totally forgot to mention it. That might be because the most memorable part of the trip was the fact that I got strep throat. Basically I wandered around the city in a stupor for 3 days mixing in a couple of fevered naps in parks. BUT I was able to toss in a trip to Katz and a slice of Chicago pizza before my throat closed up completely. Needless to say I was exhausted, sleepy, in a lot of pain, and super drained the whole time, oh and did I mention I was tired? 

I shall DEFINITELY be going back. 

Oh, and I should mention a trip to a local apple orchard that I don’t remember much of but I was with some fun peeps!
