The beginning of 2019 started off with a bang with a lot of traveling. I spent the first few weekend traveling, and things never really slowed down from there. I’ve been trying to write this damn blog post for months now. Seeing as it’s almost July now, I’m just going to do a summary of what I’ve been up to.
After my awesome holiday in the Amazon (which already feels like a lifetime ago), I started the New Year with a work sales summit in Orlando the end of January, a trip to London, Vegas, and work trip to Philly. I also had a work trip in LA.
Highlights of LA – Kev and I visited both Y7 studios in Melrose and Silver Lake, we ran 5 miles up Griffith Observatory, went to the LA County Museum of Modern Art (LACMA), and had brunch at two amazing spots, Crossroads and Little Pine. I of course had to balance a lot of work out with some indulgences, so I had ice cream at Salt & Straw and Kiddos Creamery which were both delish.
A few weeks later in February, Kev and I spent President’s Day weekend in Aspen with friends. We had a blast skiing. On April 4th Kev and I celebrated our 2-year anniversary and he took me to see To Kill a Mockingbird on Broadway with Jeff Daniels. It was SO good.
We celebrated my 31st birthday in Mexico. It was just for a long weekend but it was a blast. We stayed at Mi Amor, a Colibri Boutique Hotel. One day we went scuba diving and one day we explored old ruins.
Over Memorial Day weekend I visited my family in Michigan. It was nice because I got to have dinner with my immediate family to catch up, my dad and I played golf one morning and I went running at the newly redone High School track with my mom, and we celebrated my grandpa’s 88th birthday with the extended family at the lake.
The beginning of June we celebrated a friend’s birthday in Sea Island, Georgia. It was my first time to Sea Island and I LOVED it. He rented a cabana at the adult-only pool one day and we had two nice 3-course dinners. We stayed at The Lodge at Sea Island Golf Club, a luxury 5-star resort. Not only was our room huge, they brought large fresh baked cookies by our bedside every evening. One evening we also did a boat ride that left at The Cloister and I’d love to stay there next time.
We’ve also been enjoying the city while we’re in town. We went to a few vegan festivals in the city and tried new foods and products, we’ve been trying out new fitness studios including Precision Run, SolidCore, Barry’s Bootcamp, and Hackd, and 4U Fitness, we went on a graffiti and street art tour in Brooklyn with Graff Tours, and I took Kev to a show at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn to see Cillian Murphy in Grief is the Thing with Feathers which was weird but his performance was great.
