Today marks day one of the longest time I’ve been away from San Francisco since I moved two and a half years ago.
I have mastered the art of packing for an overnight trip in one small duffel bag.
A weekend trip? No problem, I’ll just take my carry-on.
But two back-to-back trips, spanning over 13 days? What do I pack?? I guess it’s better to be over-prepared than under…
First Stop: Las Vegas
I’m currently in between sessions at the WOMMA Summit at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas. This hotel is incredible. I’ve stayed in nice hotels before, but this one takes the cake.
I love the WOMMA Summit. Last year, I made some great friends and connected with some of Context Optional’s biggest customers (and even some potential customers, too!). I’m really looking forward to what this year brings.
Second Stop: Colorado (and I’m nervous)
On Friday, I fly directly from Las Vegas to Denver. My little cousin — who I suppose isn’t so little any more — is becoming a Bar Mitzvah on Saturday and I’m joining in on the festivities. Can’t miss a Torah reading sesh and a DJ playing Top 40s!
I’m staying through the entire week to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family. I can’t wait to spend some time in Colorado — I really haven’t been back for an extended period of time since I moved. I can’t wait to catch up with my bestie, and all of my other friends who have scattered around the country.
I’m nervous because…..my boyfriend is joining me and my family this year for Thanksgiving….
We’re approaching our one-year anniversary (where the heck did the time go??) and while I am nervous for him to be all up in my element, I’m really excited to show him around Colorado. He’ll have a chance to experience where I grew up, where I hung out, what I did, and meet all of my friends and family.
Here’s to a wonderful 13-day adventure!
