does it surprise anyone that the thing i'm most excited to get back to is my boyfriend? we moved in together about three weeks before i left for my internship, and i'm so thrilled that i'll be able to see him the second i walk through the door. long distance is tough; i do not envy anyone who has to do it for long periods of time or over a bigger time difference.
|please excuse the gratuitous boyfriend photo, i just miss his face...|
right up there along side alex is my cat. i miss him so much. i felt really bad leaving him behind because i feel like he thinks i abandoned him. you know he's going to be extra spoiled when i get back; i have to make up for six weeks apart!
3.) lakefront trail
|do not excuse this face; it's universally adorable|
i really dislike having to cross streets/wait for stop lights while on my run. while there are a lot of trails in dc, none are convenient for me. the lakefront trail, on the other hand, is right near my apartment. i can't wait to do my long runs along lake michigan again!
|i mean, would you get tired of this?|
4.) my kitchen
though i like my airbnb, it doesn't have a full kitchen. i'm not much of a cook, but not being able to heat up peppers and onions on the stove for a burrito bowl or roast broccoli in an oven has been super annoying. i'll be happy to get back to making my normal meals.
|and smoothies! i miss having a blender!|
5.) pure barre-lincoln park
don't get me wrong, i really enjoyed my time at pure barre capitol hill. but it made me miss my home studio so much! pb-lp is an easy walk from work for me (think 5 minutes versus 35 minutes here in dc) and it's never quite as crowded in my preferred classes. plus, i want to start working my way toward 100 classes, and i have to stay put at one studio to do that!
|ahh, home sweet home. image via here|
of course there are more things i'm looking forward to get back to, but these top the list!
what do you miss most from home when you're away?
