An Ode to Home …

Well friends, as I mentioned on Monday, I made a quick (surprise) trip back east last week for my nephew’s second birthday party. It was the perfect time to head home for a bit, since I’ve been feeling a bit wishy-washy about Denver. I even made it into the city one day and managed to catch up with some friends and an old boss — it was just the shot in the arm I needed to head back west and take on spring!

Here’s a bit of my trip in pictures …


1Irish_Coffees^^ Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day — the day of my arrival — in the best way possible with Irish Coffees

2Times_Square^^ Glorious, glorious Times Square. This city always has a way of making me feel alive.

3Coffee_Bean^^ I hit up The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf for the first time ever with a friend while I was in the city. It was pretty good, but Dunkin’ Donuts, you still have my heart …

4Central_Park^^ I had a little bit of time in between friend meet-ups, so I took a solitary stroll through Central Park. She’s a beauty. 
5Rory_Bus^^ This little guy — the whole reason for my trip. Happy 2nd birthday little man! Love you so, so much!
6Spring_Snow^^ Happy spring?! To be honest, I’m kind of glad it snowed like crazy the Friday I was home (although it did make the drive from Jersey to Pennsylvania a bit treacherous.) I’ve been watching via social media the crazy winter the east coast has been having, and I’ve been more than a little bit jealous, so this was nice.

7Rory_Counting^^ Don’t worry, we’re not upset. We’re just counting to 10 with our eyes closed while Mommy hides our toy bus. It’s a pretty fun game.

8Swim_Lessons^^ I attended Rory’s swim practice Saturday morning before his party, and it was the cutest thing. He doesn’t too much love the idea of putting his head under water yet, but he’ll get there!
9Rory_Gift^^ The aunts and uncles all put in to get Rory a bus/slide combo for his birthday present … and I think it’s safe to say he pretty much loved it.

10Bday_Cake^^ Two whole years in the books.
12Sun_Set^^ And the sun sets on my trip back home (and in my parents’ yard). Till next time, family … bis bald!
