Day 21 - Your Favorite City & Happy Birthday Luke!

So I am doing much better on my blog challenge - Even though it has taken me 3 months to finish a 30 day blog challenge! ha! Anyways, here is day 21

Your Favorite City:

I am going to be unconventional and do 2 - one city that I visit often that is part of my reality, and one city that I love to go on vacation to.

My first city is Cullman, AL - Where Ty's Lakehouse is!!! There is nothing better than waking up, walking out on the front porch and watching the calm morning lake water. It is so pretty. I love laying on the dock, doing absolutely nothing, listening to country music. I love taking sea-doo rides with Ty. I love wakeboarding and tubing. I love the sunsets that remind me of my Uncle Stu. I just love everything about the lake! There is no other place in the world that I love more than the lake! Here are some of my favorite pictures from the lake:

My other favorite city that I'm obsessed with but I know I will never live there is Boston! Boston reminds me of NYC but better. I loved NYC but there is a "homey" feel to Boston. I just love it! Mom and Dad took Ty and I for my graduation trip in 2009 which was the first time I went. We did ALL the touristy things and went to TWO Boston Red Sox Games along with a personal tour of the stadium with one of Ty's Dad's friends. We had such a blast!! Last summer, I went again - this time to visit my best friend, Molly, who moved up there last January. Molly and I always joked that we were going to move to Boston together. If Ty wasn't in my life, I would totally move there for a year or so, just to say I've lived the "city life". Its totally "me" - so fast paced! Anyways, back to my trip to see Molly - I was so excited to see "her" Boston. I wanted to see where she went to eat and where she walked around and where she lived. I was so excited to see Boston through her eyes. Boston is such a cool city. You can walk everywhere, there are cute little restaurants and shops everywhere and it is just a gorgeous city! Here are some of my favorite pictures from my 2 visits to Boston:

we got lucky - Boston was playing Texas the weekend we went  - so we go to see our college friend who is now a Texas Pitcher, Tommy!

absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!

love this picture!

On another note - Today is my nephew, Luke's 3rd birthday! I cannot believe he is 3 years old!!!!!! Happy Birthday Luke, Aunt Kafween loves you VERY much!!!! Thank you for coming into my life 3 years ago and showing me what being an aunt was all about!!! You will always be the one who made me an aunt for the first time and will always have a special place in my heart!

  1. Growing up the lake(Meme & Granddady's lake house) was my favorite place, so many fun memories that I will cherish forever!
    I hope we get to visit Boston sometime soon!
