(Not MY wedding bells! Nobody Panic!)
Last week I made the MUCH anticipated trip to Texas for my brother's wedding. I'm not sure I've ever been so exhausted in my life! I spent the summer semi-isolated because I was trying to save myself from spending too much money. So I went from semi-isolation to PEOPLE and lots of them! It was like a family reunion x 2. I got to see friends and family that I haven't seen, some of them in over a year and a half. I hadn't seen some of Tom's friends in who knows how many years! However, I was also getting to know a new (and wonderful!) family. I spent a lot of time hopping from one bunch to the other, trying to get in some quality time with everyone. It was a blast, but also a whirlwind!
The whole week was such an amazing celebration. I just can't put together words that explain how special it was. I was so glad to be a part of the festivities in planning and participation. I couldn't be more proud of my brother. Tom and Brynn's story is nothing short of God ordained and miraculous! They are so in love and have made a beautiful commitment to each other. I shed many a tear, laughed a lot, and smiled the whole week. I wish I could capture the memories vividly forever! There were so many special moments and beautiful things said. This marriage is just soaked in love and support. (Thanks to those of you who came out to Texas and pitched in!)
And it seems all of a sudden I'm back to reality. I'm trying to piece together the events of last week and the weeks before and figure out how to pick up where I left off. The Pile of emails is a little intimidating! But! School is back in session and it's good to have a schedule and goals to accomplish! I've only got a little less than 8 months! Which is just gonna fly, probably too fast.
Onward and Upward!
