How our lives can change in the blink of an eye. I had every intention of following up my last post with a happy update about enjoying the little things in life and taking it slow. However, the Sunday after my somewhat vague, but very real and very vulnerable post, my world as I knew it came to a halt. The planning, preparing and dreaming that I had been so busy and excited about didn’t matter anymore. This will not be a space where I bash or reveal intimate details of what went on but the important thing to know is that I will not be getting married in September. I am still confused, stunned and raw.
You know when you have a no good, rotten moment and it throws you off? Well, I had one of those last night and I just couldn’t bring myself to focus on writing a blog post. But I’m here. The morning came and I dragged my butt out of bed and got on with the day. I had one of those reality checks where you get caught up in thinking everything in life is perfect and dandy and you feel like you have your shit together and then BAM! Reality comes a knocking and says, “Ha, you thought you had this all figured out? Try again next time.” Because you know what? We will, we’ll keep trying and striving and living and doing and working our best to figure life out.
Another work trip took me to Texas but this time I was in San Antonio. It was humid as all hell but I thought San Antonio was actually a pretty neat city! I had heard a lot about the Alamo, obviously, and the River Walk but wasn’t really sure what to expect. The River Walk is pretty cool but SO crowded, I think it does save time using the walk to get to places but that’s only if you can navigate through the crowds of people and not get completely lost. Overall, I thought San Antonio had a lot to offer that I could easily see in the short time I was there.
This weekend two of our closest friends got MARRIED!
The wedding was at Smith Rock State Park and we all stayed at this insane house that looked out onto the park. The wedding was intimate, personal and so perfectly them. It’s so fun getting to witness and celebrate our friends’ love!
One year ago (from yesterday) Tim got down on one knee and proposed. It still feels like it happened just the other day and it blows me away that a year has already flown by. Next weekend we get to celebrate two of our very dear friends as they get married and then it’s our turn!
Remember that yummy looking jam I made last week? Well, it was looking a little lonely in my fridge and I decided to make something with it. I made strawberry pop tarts this week and I can’t wait to tell you all about them (plus some other random tid bits).
