This morning I am feeling quite emotional. It is typical of me after major life events to turn introspective, evaluating the moments of the past. I am filled with gratitude of all the players in my life and the love that they share with me. Mostly, I feel the love of God the Father and his master plan at work in my life.
Reflecting on the last 3 weeks is bittersweet. So many wonderful memories and moments that will live with me forever. Consequently, there are also moments I wish to forget, and the ones that I took advantage of and didn't live out to full potential. Regardless I can look back at April and May 2011 with fondness and the knowledge that my life is truly blessed.
Roastfish and Cornbread, our day trip to Charleston and our 2 mile bike ride on the beach with no pedaling!
preparing the house for all of our guests the following weekend.
preparing for Forbes' 30th Birthday Bash!
Big Day came and all pieces were in place. The guests were in town, the food was ready and the party went off without a hitch. Perfect weather, great wine, and wonderful friends!
to cluttered very quickly!
two new appliances, the bread maker and the donut maker!
Volunteer Appreciation Dinner for all of our fabulous coaches. This was my favorite event of its kind to date. The food was great, the entertainment was phenomenal and I got to spend time with all of these amazing women and men!
put on a show. This 5k was different than the many others I have directed. It was a new location, more people than before, and Molly Barker, the founder of Girls on the Run was scheduled to attend.
The race came and went and before I knew it Forbes and I were standing in an empty parking lot once again. It was all over. And we were hungry. The next meal goes down as the best in history. It was good...probably not the best food I have ever eaten, but it was the perfect food for that exact moment.
Visiting with my aunts and my grandma is another very fond memory of the last 3 weeks. It was a hard decision to drive the 3 hours to Westminster after an already long day and I was worried it would be a bad decision. However, Forbes and I both enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and I am really glad that I got to attend Heather's Graduation Party!
