Hello! I am writing from my wonderful kitchen table this morning. And boy, it has been a whirlwind of the past couple of days. My dad turned 60 on Thursday–so we decided to make an impromptu trip to Maryland to celebrate his birthday. Mimi invited us to a cookout in my dad’s honor a few weeks back and since it was a free weekend for us, we decided to go! I told the majority of my family about the surprise trip–and everyone kept quiet until we arrived and dad greeted us at the door. I am so happy that we got to surprise/celebrate with my dad at his party!
The bonus of the trip was that we got to be with my mom and sister on Mother’s Day. It was my sister’s first Mother’s Day which makes it even more exciting. After not being able to find reservations anywhere, we decided to cook an amazing brunch including fritta, cinnamon rolls, bacon, sausage and fruit. We had mimosas (or momosas) to celebrate my wonderful mom and sister. It was a great day and wonderful to get to spend the day with the two best moms I know!
We were in Maryland about 48 hours–but the trip was well worth it. I love being around my family and getting to spend quality time with them means the world to me. Also, spending time with the cutest nephew is great too!
