It's before 7 a.m. on a Monday and yup, I'm up blogging. A really terrific night's sleep will have you up early, especially when you've been thinking about so many exciting things.
I found out this weekend that my cousin Wes (a favorite cousin, we're only 6 weeks apart in age) had an offer accepted on a house outside of Boston. Yay! Congrats text messages turned into "you should come to town for Ross' 30th birthday" and now I'm expecting a call from him this morning to sort out the logistics. I'm 95% sure that he and his girlfriend will be spending a long weekend with us on Lake Travis in April. Hurray!
My trip to see Val in 09
Now, this part was a surprise when checking email before 7 a.m. but I got a note from my favorite law school student, Val, about our summer plans. Her summer schedule is settled (sorry Deltas, will not divulge, you have to call her) and now we know when it would be best for me to come visit. The plan is to fly up to Seattle Thursday, June 23 and stay for a long weekend. It's the 2011 Cheryl-only trip where I go pretend to be in college again.
Add into that my upcoming NYC business trip next month, DC & Chicago probably in March and our vacation to South Carolina for Ben & Anna's wedding in April and it is shaping up to be a fantastic 2011.
