So, now that you are all caught up on my West Coast adventures from this fall, it’s time to switch gears and travel to the opposite side of the country. Todd was out for a solid three months for the fall tour season since the band combined two separate tours into one long trip. I’ll let that sink in. He was gone for an ENTIRE SEASON of the year. No jumping in leaf piles or drinking pumpkin spice lattes for us-the leaves had pretty much turned and fallen by the time he got home. Wah, wah, I know.
Anyways, for my second trip out to visit I joined the band in Pittsburgh, PA (my hometown), and did another week long stay winding around the East Coast and ending up in Atlanta, GA. The early October weather had brought the usual rain and slight chill that I’m accustomed to with an East Coast fall, but we didn’t let it dampen our spirits. We were so happy to be together and he got extra points for presenting me with a necklace he bought for me during their Toronto show. Good boy. We also had the most delicious Nutella and banana crepes (my favorite) and Thai bubble tea that still haunt my dreams.
Most tour visits are spent walking around and exploring the cities, eating, and shopping a bit. Hmm, I guess that’s what I usually do at home too. But even everyday activities seem extra special when you get to do them in fun places with the one you love most.
Todd comes back from his Singapore/Australia trip tomorrow and I’m SO excited. I can’t wait to hear all his stories and see pictures (perchance a present I shall have as well??). I definitely need to tidy up the house before he gets here though, Charlie and I live like total bachellorettes when he’s gone. Maybe I can get her to dust with her tail…
