It's been a long time since Jenn and I were in the big apple. We've talked about going back for many years, heck every once in a while we think about just packing up our stuff and moving out here. But after our trip to Chicago we decided that it was time to finally go back to the big apple and at the same time check off a bucket list item for me, the US Open.
A little while back I wrote a post, Joel & Jenn's Travel Continues - Part 1 that talked about Jenn and I booking a trip to New York to watch two days of the US Open (1-day session, and 1-night session). Around the same time that we booked the US Open we booked a trip in January of 2018 to head back to Switzerland.
Jenn and I are now on our third round of Blue Apron. We've kind of gotten into a routine (both positive and negative) of getting a Steak. Chicken, and Pasta meal for each of these. It's sort of disheartening because that's typically what we cook anyways. So if we are to continue ordering Blue Apron we've both decided that we're going to try to be a little more adventuresome.
It doesn't happen often, but I love when it does. There's no better feeling than when you get fully enraptured in a novel. For me personally, I haven't had a novel move me the way The Hate U Give did in a long, long time. This is one of those rare novels that instantly transported me into the world of young 16-year-old girl, Starr Carter.
