As you may have deduced, I spent my weekend in Plymouth, Massachusetts, which sits on the coast about 40 minutes outside Boston. My friend, Kate, live there and after 3 years of friendship I finally met her family. (Most of my friends have met my family and many of them met freshman year.)
On our first day there, we walked along the water, where I saw the Mayflower 2 (the replica of the Mayflower) as well as Plymouth Rock. It is pretty interesting to actually see the place after learning about the pilgrims my entire life. For Kate, this was the destination of a million field trips. I suppose it's comparable to my education on Ellis Island or the gold rush. You learn a lot about the history around you. Anyways, this was a photo Kate took of me, so I could text it to my mom. (My mom and I both love traveling and history.)

We ended the weekend with a trip to Boston to meet up with Sarah and Fleur. We did a little shopping and then headed to Flatbread where Kate's brother works. I've never been to a Flatbread, but it was AWESOME! So delicious. We had this sweet potato pizza with goat cheese, cranberries, and caramelized onions that was to die for! We called it our "last supper," since we were leaving to head back to cafeteria food.
Now I am back at SMC with a big week ahead including interviewing, Global Comm-ing, and practicing my speech for the Accepted Student Day this weekend and next weekend. I hope to see a ton of Class of 2016-ers there! Have a great week!
