What a week.

First off, Thomas had a week off from med school and came home which meant the week was already bound to be the best one I’ve had in a while. On top of that, I got to see Hamilton! THEN, Thomas and I went on a fun historical adventure!!   This week break for Thomas [...]


Old Friends and Flashbacks

There are very few things better than a good warm meal with an old friend, add a Symphony experience on to that – and you have a very cultured friendship experience. Jacob and I have been friends since high school – at least 6 years. We met through our high school band class (Shout out [...]
