July has come and gone and a lot has happened in the past month. I’ve moved, had my mom visit, and had a mini relationship. After starting the month house-sitting for Ben & Ellen, I realized that I really wanted to move back into the City. Extra drama with my roommate helped speed up the process and I was moved in by the middle of the month. It was the best decision I have ever made.
Reily and I have settled into our little apartment back in the old neighborhood. Our routine consists of morning walks around the block and nightly walks around the park. Reily is eating regularly and I’m loving it! I have St. Joe nuns that live above me and I can’t hear a thing, my last apartment I could hear everything, it’s like my own house here.
My mom was up here the second week of July and we were busy. We saw Meet Me in St. Louis at the Muny, walked in the All Star Game 5K, countless outings to Ted Drews, dinners with family and friends and much help looking for the new apartment. We even celebrated my mom’s birthday with a Cardinals game, saw 2 Pujols homeruns that night. Great to see a Cards win! Over all it was a great visit, if only my parents would just move up here!
Besides the move and visits, I’ve gone to a free concert at Missouri Botantical Gardens and Jammin’ at the Zoo. Fun events that have live music, bring your own food and drinks and the Zoo had wine tasting. I even managed to catch a Cards game with Liz, Rasmus hit the game winning homer in the 10th! I’d say I’ve had a great July, minus all the drama!
I’m lovin’ summer time in St. Louis…this is why I moved!
