A Weekend Away

This weekend, we spent a much needed weekend away with our friends in Lubbock, the Shews. It was mostly happy and a little sad too, as the Shews are moving in the fall to California, where Michael has a prestigious Stegner Fellowship at Stanford University. This was the last of the swimming pool visits, board game playing, cooking together, and movie watching weekends for a long while. We will see them for one last hurrah at our wedding, in which they are both participating, before they move.

I wish I had taken some pictures, but our memories together are unforgettable anyway. We are sad to see them go, but oh-so-happy to see them "spread their wings." There are certainly many changes in life; remembering that helps me to appreciate every single stage of it.

There are some big changes heading our way soon: marriage, new job (for me), and potentially, a move to a new residence. It was nice to take a weekend away to just forget about it all and do something very familiar.

We arrived home last night, and Brendan whipped up an instant Kashi dinner. Thankfully, the Shews have been into eating healthy lately, so we were able to stick to our pre-wedding slim down while away. Today is consisting of doing laundry, writing thank you notes (I am 100% caught up, yay!), snuggling with the cats (who missed us so), and working out. A much needed yoga class will follow it all tonight.

Time seems to be moving faster than ever. Hard to believe we'll be leaving for Austin in just 10 days!

Hope your weekend brought a "break from it all."

Happy start to the new week!
