A Trip Recap from the Detroit Airport

It's been three years since I've seen one of my very best friends from college. We started off as roommates who did not like each other then morphed into workout buds and eventually bff's. For nearly two years I saw her every day. Even when I graduated and took a job back home and she went on to get her Master's degree in our college town, I still saw her often, many times making the two hour Friday night drive to Columbia to re-live our undergrad days. 

And then somehow time and jobs and moves and schedules and money all got in the way and it wasn't until this past weekend that all those things collided perfectly and we were finally re-united. 

Re-united!

On this trip, Sarah learned that I am a horrible relaxer and have inordinate amounts of energy. So she did her best to keep me entertained and show me all the grand sights of the bustling town of Binghamton, NY....

Dinner out the first night 


Out on the town with Sarah's friends




Sweating Freezing it out  in Sarah's gym....which was set at 49 degrees (#brrrrrrr) and was full of way too much man jewelry

We tried on ridiculous outfits

and took silly pics

We visited Sarah's work...which happens to be a psych ward. #scarytown

Ran Sarah's first 5K with her!

and got to see the park where Taylor Swift filmed Back to December

And now I'm sitting in the Detroit airport, ready to head back to Atlanta where the temps are knocking at the  70s and there is no man jewelry to be seen in the gym....yet very thankful for sweet friendships and new memories.

How did you spend your weekend?
XO, A

What a fun trip! I love how you manage to look amazing anywhere from sweating to glamming it up in a dress that probably wouldn't fit around my thigh. :D
