We had an amazing weekend. As it approached I realized we had very little plans and I was tempted to schedule out each and every minute. An open calendar does not sit well with me. I NEED plans! But I resisted temptation and went into Saturday knowing all I needed to do was ride my bike 30 miles. Just 30. No big deal. (Yeah, right!)
So I woke up Saturday, took my time eating breakfast and getting dressed. Around 8:30am I set out on bike to meet Bekah at her house. Six and a half miles later I arrived at Bekah's so she could finish off another 24 miles with me. We set out at a comfortable pace, talking the whole way and before you knew it, those 30 miles flew by. Really it took about two and a half hours, but it was enjoyable and done.
At the last minute I made lunch plans with a friend from Missouri, who also lived in Wisconsin with me for a bit and who was in Charlotte for the week visiting. Alex, Eleanor and I bolted down to Northlake after I took a quick shower and cleaned up. Susie knew me before I knew Alex. She knew Alex and me before we even dated. So to catch up with her, seven years later and married with a baby was quite surreal.
Back at home it was nap-time before pool-time. Bekah and her family invited us over for an afternoon swim and cookout.
Since both the girls were born we have become very close. We attend a playgroup together on Tuesdays, and regularly get together for dinner with the families. Mike and Alex have a ton in common too, both loving to play the guitar and talking about faith and family. I am so incredibly lucky to have such amazing friends in my life. And not just because their family has this stellar pool!
Sunday morning was slow and relaxing, just the way Sundays should be.
We had such a wonderful, unplanned weekend! And we are back to Monday again, and I am back to my gig at Josh's. Come out and see me, 10-2 today!
