Hello and Happy Monday Friends!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend. It felt like it flew by! Do your weekends do that too?
Matt & I had fun going to a local college hockey game Friday night with my son and daughter. Then Saturday Annie had an away hockey game in the city where Matt used to live. So we took the road trip to go watch her and for him to check up on his old stomping ground. He checked on rentals he owns there. And also tried to surprise & catch up with an old friend....but he was out of town. We went shopping at a favorite place of mine in that area - perfect for holiday shopping!! And they also have amazing food and are known for their coffee bar. I had their special of the day, which was a cherry chai latte and I think it was my favorite hot drink I've ever had! Yesterday after church we ran errands and then watched the Packers actually win a game. Lol So it was a wonderful weekend overall. 😊
I didn't get around to visit everyone last week - but I hope to make all of the rounds this week!! ❤️
