The past couple weekends I have been traveling...it is nice to get away from here and take a break. Here are some pictures from the weekends...

I went a little north of Charlotte to see my old Hofstra teammates. It has been way too long. Joy, me, and Billi...love these girls!

Dad, Mom, and I went to Kim's wedding back in NoVa. It was a lot of fun and good to be home (even though it wasn't even for 24 hours!)
