Is there such a thing as too much travelling? I never thought so, until today! I've been out of town the last two weekends. I worked three days last week and four days the week before. Last weekend I was on the west coast, in Seattle and Walla Walla, WA (and in Oregon for about an hour!), so I visited two new states. This past weekend, I went to Iowa for the first of six weddings this year.
I'm not sure why Steve is looking a bit goofy in this photo, but here is us at the wedding reception.
The wedding was at a lovely old historical church and the reception was held in a lodge at a local state park. It was low-key, like the other Iowan weddings we've gone to, where we were among the most dressed up. The wedding was on Friday, so Saturday we visited friends and then went down to the Amanas, one of my favorite places, as you know! It was a quick trip there, but I did go into my favorite quilt shop there and found some adorable fabrics, including some 1930's reproduction prints, which is my current favorite. They are too cute, so I am thinking up ideas of things to make from them!
My passport expires in October and I need to renew it now, as you aren't supposed to travel with it within six months of its expiration. This means that I've had it for nearly ten years, which means that I was in Luxembourg nine years ago right now. How is this possible?! I will admit that I was a little annoyed when I realized that its final trip was to Iowa. Lame! I should have planned a trip back to Luxembourg, so it could go back to its roots and travel full circle :) Yes, I use my passport travelling domestically too...it's just easier, I find.
How was your weekend? What did you do?
