My Trip to Denver...
So, for those of you who don't know, my husband is in Medical School at UT Houston. This is amazing; I am so happy that he is following his dream to become a doctor. The only draw back is that he is very busy, so busy that last year I found myself to be very lonely. I completely understand the commitment we have made to him going to school but as a very co-dependent person it has been a hard adjustment. Well, this year I decided I am tired of sitting at home and feeling sorry for myself. I am perfectly capable of putting myself out there and meeting new people and reconnecting with old friends. This is actually going fabulously!! I have made some amazing new friends and I have truly enjoyed reconnecting with old friends.
One of those friends is a sweet girl named Annika. Annika and I went to elementary, junior high and high school together. She was my doubles partner for four years in college and when you spend that much time with someone, you are destined to become friends. After high school we didn't chat as much but recently we have rekindled our friendship and as a way to continue putting myself out there and not being lonely, I took at trip to see her in Denver. I was a little nervous because I don't travel much without Mark but it turned out to be an awesome weekend!
My most favorite thing we did was Saturday morning we drove up to Boulder and went to a farmer's market. The weather was amazing and we got the yummiest food for lunch! I had Chicken and Basil Dumplings with a Spicy Peanut Sauce and Fresh Squeezed Lemonade. Oh dear they were good!!Yes, even when I travel my number one favorite thing to do is eat. I am pretty sure Mark and I plan our vacations based on where all we can eat! But ya, the weekend was amazing and I had so much fun with Annika; I just love friendships that can be picked up at any time! Also, this was good because Denver is one of the places I would consider moving for Mark's residency and after this trip, yes, I could move there :-)
