matt and i just did a whirlwind tour
i started in chicago and wisconsin where i saw my family and flu-ed my brains out
then i went to boston and danced with stef, which we used to do all the time but now only get to do once a year.
then i met matt in western new york where we saw our friends tim and becky marry each other forever. we all jumped in the lake in the middle of the reception which was one of my favorite parts, mostly because i learned that if people chant “britt britt britt britt” i’ll do almost anything. also, matt and i tandem waterskiied.
then we drove a bunch to get to andrew and emily in se connecticut to reun (doesn’t it sound more peaceful than reunite? like we hugged for hours)
we swam in the ocean and in andrew’s mom’s pool. i ate more seafood than i’ve eaten my whole life and what’s crazier is i loved it. we haven’t seen andrew & emily in two years, which is long enough for someone to have had two kids. it’s bonkers how that happens.
we finished the trip off by swimming into the middle of walden pond with jesse who is moving to portland as soon as the lightbulb goes off. we chatted up some kayakers and i can’t explain it but one of them rolled me on his boat. very cool. we kept it real with the elliotts and once josh got home we kept it real with sausages. i now have my own red sox shirt to wear the one week a year i’m a huge red sox fan.
