So Long Travelling

So before I even start this post, I've got a fun story from yesterday to share. 

You know when you walk out of a conversation, and realize you've had something on your face the whole time? Yeah, well yesterday after work I got in my car to notice I had chocolate on my lip. 

Pretty noticeably, too.

And I probably wouldn't have cared, until I realized that I had eaten said chocolate 3 hours earlier. 

Three hours... really?

Yeah, that happened. 

Anywho, back to this post. So this upcoming weekend will be the first weekend in over 2 months where I will be in Santa Barbara the entire weekend. 

And besides seeing this girl on Friday:


I have zero plans. 

Zilch. Nada. 

I could not be more excited. 

You see, travelling can wear on you after a while. {Shocking, I know.}

But, I will say this. I have so enjoyed the last few months. Let's recap, shall we:

- I got my Country fix in at Stagecoach.

- I soaked up the Lord both at the Women's Conference, and in Boston.

- I got to see some family and some more family.

- Had the time of my life in Vegas

- Reunited with great friends in Sacramento.

And last but not least:

- I watched my brother graduate and had some more birthday celebration fun. 

Oh, I haven't shared pics yet from that last one? You didn't think I'd leave you hanging, did you? 

Voila:














Now on to birthday bbq pics:




Lovely birthday girl:






Reminiscing on college drinking games:



Take note that Annika is giving me a high five in the above picture. I got skills, guys. Just saying.


Now, am I exhausted from all this recent travelling?

Heck yes.

But you know what I've realized? I want my words and my plans to be more than just words and plans. When someone says "Hey, let's do _________" {fill in the blank with your adventure of choice}, I want them to know that when I say "I'm down!" I really mean it. 

I want to take this life, and really live it. 

And in the next few months, I will be doing that by doing absolutely nothing.

But give me some time to re cooperate, and I'll be back at it :)

So who wants to plan the next trip?
