Saturday night marked the last wedding in our crazy 5 month streak with no weekend breaks, and I finally felt a real breath of air.  Lungs expanding and contracting- a weight lifted.

For Aric & I…it literally has been nothing but go, go, go since April.  And it’s one of the oddest feelings- to be so completely overwhelmed by the blessing of a flourishing business, and yet be so completely overwhelmed that it’s taken over life, and joy and excitement for what we do.

Finally, coming out the other side of this crazy season in our life, I feel a need to be renewed.  A need to sit and not think, to do something unprofessional, be silly, relax.

Last night, Aric & I drove around Lubbock with the windows rolled down… (mainly because it was finally cool enough to be able to!) and as I breathed in the fresh air, felt the wind whip through my hair, and looked out to yet another beautiful west texas sunset, I was at peace.

This has been a crazy beautiful summer…and I’m so looking forward to what the fall has to offer…

I hope you’ll drive with the windows rolled down for a while today…it really does bring on a whole new perspective of life…

I am jealous! I miss those beautiful West Texas sunsets and cool evenings. I can always rely on you to put a smile on my face and to remind me of the simple things in life that we all take for granted. Thank you!
