A Taste of Freedom (from Medical School)

September 27, 2015


I had no new material to study over the weekend since my exams were on Friday. It was a weekend free from studying, and oh-how-sweet it was! I enjoyed every minute I got to spend with my loved ones. It was such a nice change from my weekends full of studying...

Friday evening I got to spend time with two of my closest girlfriends from growing up. Sweet Christina had baby Luca several weeks ago and Friday marked our first girl's night with the three of us... plus baby Luca. We gave him his first "big boy" bath since his umbilical cord fell off and he was a champ. No tears or anything... and guys, there is just nothing better than a clean, snuggly baby. We had dinner together, watched some chick flicks and TV episodes, chatted over some glasses of wine, and passed baby Luca back and forth. We just can't get enough!

I just can't handle the little man's face. He wasn't having it.

On Saturday, we all had breakfast together and then I headed home to get some stuff done. I did laundry, cleaned the house, had a chance to FaceTime with the sweet family I used to nanny for, and got ready to go to Oktoberfest with some friends. We had a lovely time stuffing our faces with food, enjoying a few adult beverages, and remembering that there's a life outside of medical school :)

We enjoyed ourselves. Please note that a year ago at
Oktoberfest, I never would have eaten a turkey leg.
On Sunday, I got to sleep in (YES!), go to the grocery store, and go on a hike with my momma. A perfectly laid back Sunday. The hike was delightful. Just my mom & I... and we had the chance to talk about life and death, all of the unfolding mysteries in life, and what we both want to do when we grow up. We've both decided we'd like to do something rewarding, help others, and most importantly, rejoice in every moment we have to be alive. 

Bear enjoyed himself on the hike as well

Oh so lucky to live in a place like this

I'm so very lucky to live close to my family and friends. This weekend was so good for my soul. Tomorrow, I'll be back at it!
