I have been away from the blog for the past few days and I have missed it!
Over the weekend I traveled up to Reading, Pa. to be with my mom and her siblings as they remembered the one year anniversary of their dad, my Pop-pop’s, passing. Although it was a sad weekend, it was good to spend time with my mom, my Nana and family. I always like traveling up to the Reading area. My mom grew up there (in Mt. Penn) and since before last year it had been a really long time since I had been there. Being there brings back a lot of childhood memories and I always love to see the Pagoda.
Some highlights from the weekend:
I flew Southwest for the first time and I really enjoyed it! Obviously I love the fact that you get to check up to 2 bags for free but I also didn’t mind the different boarding format or choosing my own seat. I got to board towards the front of the crowd on both of my flights so that could have something to do with it. They started flying in and out of Charleston within the past year or so and I am glad I was able to fly with them. We need a low cost carrier in Charleston that will stay here.
On the way back to Charleston we flew back in from the North which takes you over some pretty awesome views.
Some flying time also meant that I got to do some reading. Julie over at PB Fingers choose The Paris Wife as the book for her March book club. I want to participate again so I downloaded it to my Nook right before I left on Friday. I will be doing a review here on March 1st.
On Friday I was awarded the Lieber Blog award from Peanut Butter and Peppers! Thank you Jennifer!
