today i’m writing to you today from the airport in columbus.
a couple years ago my sister and her husband sadly moved away to ohio. having only one sister and growing up in a tight knit family, it was tough to see her make the move and with the 7 hour drive from toronto to columbus, we don’t get to see her nearly as much as we’d like.
^^weren’t we just the cutest of sisters? haha
i’ve made the trip to columbus a couple times and always managed to have an amazing time, but since i only had a super short visit with her last weekend (which i blogged about here), my mom, my cousin and i booked a last minute flight to pay her a visit.
^^crossed this off my bucket list during my visit to columbus last summer.
^^during my christmas visit, we took in some columbus/pittsburgh action at the rink.
we flew out of yyz bright and early yesterday morning on a teeny tiny prop plane (where i saw my life flash before my eyes, as we teetered into the sky) and spent the day getting some quality power shopping in. thanks to my favourite brother-in-law, we also took in the columbus vs. pittsburgh hockey game at night.
^^taking in game 4 & an amazing w for a deserving team!! go cbj!
my sister and her husband live in a beautiful little community that is literally straight out of a fairytale. the streets are lined with white picket fences and blooming trees. there are walking paths throughout. a large mailbox houses a community library. all you need are rainbows and lollipops and you’d think you were living in a dream. i’m lucky to have had an hour to enjoy the sunny skies on a walk around the neighbourhood.
^^could this place be any cuter?
after laying my head down to sleep for a couple hours last night, it was time to head back to toronto and back to reality.
although it was much too short of a trip, i’m so happy to have spent some time at my sister’s…and getting some much needed shopping in didn’t hurt either!
columbus, you’re always good to me –’til next time!
