7 Years. . .

Yesterday was my "MS Anniversary." 7 years ago I was diagnosed with MS and life hasn't been the same since. I honestly can't believe it has been 7 years already. In honor of my continued stable health I decided to celebrate life all weekend long. It started on Thursday night since my friend Emily was visiting from DC and it continued with fun (and naps) all weekend long. The weather was gorgeous which only made the weekend that much better.

Friday night the celebrating continued with a last minute decision to go to the Ed Sheeran concert. I'm so glad we did! It was an awesome show and he had his biggest US crowd to date (53,000). Oh and did I mention that Chris Martin made a surprise appearance and they sang two songs together! Amazing!

Saturday started with errands, a manicure and lunch at Chick-fil-a! I took a nap in the afternoon to gear up for my 3rd night in a row out! I'm not use to all these late nights. Saturday night I met up with Emily again and some of our other friends. We had a great dinner at Gather in the Seaport and then met up with more friends for drinks.

Saturday night when we got home from the concert the smoke detector in my bedroom was "chirping" really loud and despite changing the batteries we could not make it stop. So we called the non-emergency line for the fire department hoping they could come quietly but unfortunately that was not the case. . .

Turns out it was dead and needed to be replaced. They were not amused! Ha! I'm sure our entire neighborhood was not happy about the wake up call at midnight!

Today I met up with my friend Joana and her kids at the pumpkin patch! We had a lot of fun and it gave me a chance to finally give her daughter her birthday gift (her party was the day I moved so I had to miss it).

More pumpkin patch photos to follow. . .

Cheers to 7 years! Here's to a cure before I "celebrate" 7 more!


  1. Sounds like a fun weekend...except for the fire dept. part. Oops! But the rest sounds pretty dang amazing. :)

  2. Any cute firemen? Sorry! Had to ask! It looks like other than the smoke detector escapade - you had an amazing weekend!
