A Perfect Game and A Day Trip.

Happy Monday and Happy April Loves! I hope you ended March on a high note and are ready to tackle a new month, filled new goals and big smiles. I enjoyed a great weekend, one of the best I've had in awhile.

It all started on Friday as I watched something spectacular unfold before my eyes. Kyle and his team Limoges CSP had an away game in Evereux, which is right outside of Paris. I hate when I can't watch the games in person, I like to be there cheering on Kyle and his team, after what happened Friday night I was really bummed I didn't get to see the game live. I was home in our apartment in Limoges with Wooden watching the game and losing my mind as Kyle was having the "perfect" game, he was shooting 100%, which isn't a simple fete. I was on the edge of my seat after he hit shot after shot and breathed a sigh of relief as the game ended, Limoges won and Kyle had his perfect game, ending the night with 22 points. He shot 4/4 from the three point line, 4/4 from inside the arc and 2/2 from the free throw line, he also had 5 assists and nabbed 3 rebounds. I can't tell you how proud I am of Kyle and I know I'm not the only one, the outpouring of support from family, friends and CSP fans was phenomenal, everyone leaving kind words for Kyle and his amazing achievement.

This achievement however, doesn't surprise me. Kyle has been working his butt off to get to this point and it is very well deserved, I'm not just saying this because I happen to live with the guy. I'm saying it because I see day in and day out how hard he works and how focused he is on being the best player and professional he can be. I know there are still big things to come for Kyle and his career as a professional basketball player and it couldn't be more deserving. Below is a awesome clip that the CSP organization released of Kyle's perfect game, check it out it's really cool.

After Kyle's success Friday night it made our day trip to Bordeaux even more desirable, we needed to celebrate. As I mentioned on Friday in my vlog, which you can check it out here (VLOG) if you missed it, I was quite nervous as this would be Wooden's first trip. Well, he blew Kyle and I away with how good he was, from the 2-1/2 hour car ride where he mainly looked out the window, to how he took over the city of Bordeaux like a seasoned traveler. His good behavior made the day even better. The weather was perfect in the city and we had such a great day, exploring, enjoying an amazing lunch and a sweet treat while we walked the streets.

Bordeaux is definitely one of my favorite places in France. The city has such a great vibe, it reminds me so much of Chicago. The weekend was a total success, I feel very blessed to be able to experience all these amazing things, which become even more amazing when I have my guy by my side and my dog at my feet. For a while I felt like a wanderer, traveling and living in different countries, in different cities, it used to be a scary feeling, not knowing what to call home, I felt lost. But now I am learning that not all who wander are lost, you can make a home anywhere, and it's crazy to think that Kyle and I managed to make a home in France, where we barely speak the language but it's all about making the best of your situation and having your best friend by your side does make the everyday challenges a lot easier.
