047 // Suprise!

Today is the day. We’ve been planning it for weeks and I spoke to no one out of fear of ruining everything. This weekend we—my mom, my youngest sister, my girlfriend, and I—drove all the way to Texas to surprise my our sister and her family for her 30th birthday celebration!

It was a long drive (over 15 hours!) and it’s going to be a long drive back starting tomorrow morning but it was so worth it. I only wish we had more time but with work and our poor pets back in Denver missing is we just couldn’t stay. Maybe next time when our jobs aren’t so pressing and the weather is warmer.

The party turned out beautifully and afterward, there was a late dinner to sit down and catch up properly. We’re going to bed late again but it can’t be helped. We have to fill the precious hours with as much as we can.

We miss each other more than we readily admit.

046 // I’ll Tell You Tomorrow

It’s been a long day long day, but I can’t really tell you about it right now except to say that today was new, it was nerve-wracking, it was exhausting, and fun, and worth every minute, but I’ll never ever do it again, at least not like this.

And now I’m off to bed, far too late and dreading the next few nights of the same followed by mornings so early I barely know who or where I am or why the hell I’m even awake.
