Midnight Travels











Jacket: Mountain Hardware; Top: Gap; Jeans: Paige Denim; Flats: Asos (similar); Purse: GiGi New York

Last night, Ben and I kicked off date night by heading to a bottleshop to by a few IPAs to taste beer. We also snagged some dips, a roast chicken, and went home to make pretzels and watch some Hayao Miyazaki films. We usually spend Friday nights with date night activities as it's one of our only days that we can spend together without Ben needing to study. About 10 minutes into the evening, we got a call about a family emergency and needed to abruptly leave home and head to Eugene. Our pretzel dough is still sitting on the stove and I am a bit sad at how delicious they would have been and now never will be.

So we're in Eugene now with Ben's family and our weekend has taken a much different turn. But not all about the trip has been bad - we had a nice drive down last night on the empty freeway. We also got to see a really beautiful sunrise this morning over the hillsides and are getting some important family time in. Kitty piled in the car with us last night as we left with little warning and no time to locate a cat sitter, and is having an absolute blast terrorizing Ben's childhood cat. There are always silver linings, or perhaps in the case of this morning, pink and orange sunrise linings, to every cloud. 

Happy weekend all.
