Winter break has been a godsend.Waking up feeling like I have actually gotten a decent amount of sleep is amazing. I've also been liberated by my lack of homework (except college apps are sort of crushing that notion). Although my family and I don't take a vacation over winter break we do like to take some day trips to near-by places. Most of the trips are on a whim, so we don't always know where we'll end up. Last week we found ourselves in an adorable historic town that was filled with "old-timey" charm and that quaint vintage feel. Despite some newer ones, many of the houses and stores were brightly colored and filled with quirky items. After walking up and down the roadway we stopped for some dinner at a brewery. Needless to say my Jagerschnitzel, garlic mashed potatoes, and salted caramel cheesecake meal was delicious.
