We drove into Gratiot to spend a few days with the fam before spending the weekend in Galena. We celebrated Levi's birthday and I relaxed the most I had in months. Augh, so nice! We ate Casey's pizza (apparently, legendary) and exchanged Christmas gifts.. Lukus gave me some incredible white appetizer plates for me to use for all of my parties, plus some other sweet gifts! It was so nice of his parents to move some things around in the basement to make it even cozier for us to stay. They arranged a new little room for us and a hangout area for all the "kids" to hang once it started getting late.
|Jamming and freestyling with Levi. He even let me name all of his songs!|
Later in the week, we spent an afternoon in New Glarus, WI with Justin's bros and Marta! Lunch at the NG Hotel and exploring Little Switzerland's bakery, cheese shop and meat shop. What a fun day!
|Like a 'kid in a sweet shop' - haha|
|And then the snow began to fall..|
|Headed to the NG Brewery, crammed in the back of the Element|
|Our condo for New Year's weekend - Marta hooked us up with! The old Galena High School, overlooking downtown Galena|
|Two amazing things: Skrillex & Egg Rolls|
|Only 3,000 steps to climb to get to Main Street|
|Live music and hanging with friends at Embe|
|Thennn the sock-mittens came out..|
|Getting ready to say 'goodbye'|
|Hangin' with G before we headed back to his parent's house|
