For the past few days, my roommates and I have walked outside and seen a strange item in the middle of our front yard.
Upon further inspection, we found out that our trash bin had been filled up by the corner store and then returned to us. How sweet of them! This afternoon, Tiffany and I stopped into the store before the gym and talked to the person working. He wasn’t sure who did it, but said he was sorry and that he would take care of it. After the gym, I came home to find this note on our door.
One quick phone call and another trip to the corner store led to …
Too bad it’s the weekend before finals week so I won’t be touching it until next Thursday …

At my birthday dinner with these lovely ladies last Saturday evening, I decided to start a blog.
There are many wonderful moments and conversations that I can’t possibly tuck into my memory forever. Instead, I’m going to write about them here! I’ve heard about people who take one photo a day for a year and then look back at the end of the year and evaluate how much they’ve seen, done, and learned. I plan on doing the same – at least one photo for each day of my 22nd year.
So! Today is Thanksgiving, but before that, I want to back up one day to my 22nd birthday!
I flew home late Tuesday evening and woke up bright and early Wednesday morning at my parent’s house. I got a coffee and pedis with my sisters (Mary & Libby). After that, we headed into Tampa to meet our Mom at the mall. My Dad wasn’t too excited to see us coming home 6 hours later with multiple shopping bags … ! After a little resting and a mini fashion show, the family headed out to dinner in downtown St Pete. We ate at a Greek restaurant called Acropolis. The food was great, but unfortunately, it’s one of those restaurants that sings to you on your birthday. Don’t get me wrong, I love birthdays, but I HATE that kind of attention. It was a wonderful day and I’m really glad I got to spend it at home in Florida with my family. My only complaint? I wish my older sister Christina had been there too! She was busy being professional up in NYC.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Today was just one of those awesome family days where everyone is just around the house relaxed and not worrying about impressing other people. My uncle came by for the meal, and we all ate outside on the back porch with a view of the water. We lingered over my mom’s great cooking and some red wine enjoying family. It was perfect, minus missing Christina again!
Tomorrow is going to be a day of leftovers & laying out.
Rough life, I know.
