Crazy trip and a Happy Thanksgiving

November 28, 2007 at 1:40 am 7 comments

It’s good to be back…physically and virtually! Alex and I had a very good and successful trip in Ohio. We knew it was going to be hectic going into it. It started with us driving the 3.5 hours to Dallas from Austin to catch the flight from Detroit. Once we arrived there we rented a car and drove to Toledo where we made a pit stop and visited Alex’s old job at WGTE. After which we drove an hour and a half to Lima to visit his dad, stepmom, and nephews until Wednesday evening when we drove back to Toledo to be with his mom and see our friends from college for the rest of the trip. I was sooo excited to go back to Bowling Green where I went to school and spent 4 years of my life that feel like a decade ago.

I was so excited when we got there that there was so much fall foliage still on the trees. I love fall colors and get so giddy when I see them. The day we left a cold snap hit the midwest and the rest of the leaves fell :-)

Alex and I were in charge of the turkey, well mostly Alex since he’s known for what I like to call the “Firenze Turkey.” The Firenze Turkey came about in none other than Florence when Alex’s roommates (the Bufas) and my roommate and I cooked an amazing Ringraziamento (Thanksgiving) meal the day after the real Thanksgiving in 04. I can’t divulge the real recipe because it’s sacred…..but it involves a fair amount of sage.

Attached to this post are pics from the trip!!!

    THAT was a glorious day. I wanna go waaay back in time and say, “beat that, ya freaking Pilgrims! You and your buckled hats are no match for the Buf!” And then I want to go to 2004 and have some more of that amazingness we all created. And that Meloosa cleaned up after.

    Wow, what a pretty picture! :)

    Thanksgiving in Florence? Really? I spent a Thanksgiving in Tuscany around that same time, too, well a year earlier… it definitely feels funny to be out of the states during the holidays, but so many of us got together that it was one of my best Thanksgivings anyway.

    r2r: it was really weird being out of the states and leading up to the holiday i didn’t think it would be the same without being with my family….however it was probably the best thanksgiving of my life. i shared it with 8 new friends, each from a different state… the food rocked!
