Last week, we packed up our packages and set off on one of our ridiculous, overstuffed but joyful holiday journeys in which we tried to see every single loved one we could squeeze in.
We're ready for our CW drama.
On Saturday, we exchanged gifts with Sean's family and tried to solve the world's problems at dinner. We haven't quite resolved all of them yet, but at least we tried as hard as a Model UN might have. Afterward, a few of us went to see the movie "Brooklyn," about an Irish immigrant girl adjusting to life in America in the 1950s. We LOVED it. The theater was packed and we ended up in the front row; thankfully, the theater had reclining seats, but I told Katie when it was over that it's the first time I've left a movie with bedhead. When I cried, my tears went sideways. LOL.
Things that bond you forever: designing a newspaper while watching the sunrise, midnight dance parties and drunk antics at college newspaper conferences. It was so nice to be together, and a perfect end note to our whirlwind holiday travel.
I received some wonderful gifts, and I'd daresay the most surprising and wonderful was a Kindle Paperwhite from Sean, who was tired of watching me aim my phone flashlight at my old Kindle in the dark. Very sweet. Thank you to all who spoiled us with wonderful treasures and sweets!
