Detroit for Eva’s 1st Birthday

Last week was my 5th time in Detroit… I think?

I lost count after the 3rd time, because it’s literally my favorite thing in the world to be in Detroit with my best friend and his family.

There is only one trip I look forward to more than #brocation and that is my trip to see my very favorite folks, The Sideris’

Nick was one of my first bros I became friends with when I got out of the Navy back in the day and somehow we managed to live in a studio apartment. Coming off of a ship, it was literally so spacious to me at the time, but looking back I don’t know how he did it!

I was there almost the entire week, so I got a lot of time in with my peeps! I just literally love hanging out with this family.

My favorite little greek baby, Eva, turned one!!! They had a great birthday party for her at the pool. IMG_20160423_080429.jpg






FOR (R) Dinner Club

About a week ago… two weeks at the most… some friends of mine from all my various circle of friendships got together for a little FOR (Friends of Ryan) Dinner club! We had Kara (who I originally met at work), we had Jill (who was in my very first bible study many moons ago!) and we had Andrew (who I originally met on twitter and is now my bible study leader and my brocation travel friend).

We decided to meet up at Draught House 50 and the food did not disappoint (I made everyone send me what they ate and drank so i could include it on here, but… i lost those text… whoops!)

We had a gr8 dinner and we learned so much, but most importantly that Kara is a HUGE fan of manatees. IMG_20160323_211629.jpg
