It's been so long since I've posted!
Over a week, as a matter of fact.
I'm failing in blogland. Must. write. faster.
The past couple weeks have been non-stop, seems like things haven't quite slowed down since we started burnin' rubber soon as we got back to Texas.
Can you blame us? There were so many people and things that we missed!
But now that we're going on three weeks post-Scotland, I'm thinking maybe it'll slow down a little. I need it to, because I've got lots more things to do!
We're still house hunting - but we do have a contract submitted for one fab find, just waiting on things to get sorted out with the current owner. Waiting. And waiting. Are we done yet? I hate waiting!!!
And we've been visiting friends, and hanging out with friends, and spending time with the folks we're currently staying with, who are so much like family. We love it here!
I also just launched my own freelance company, so as I continue to do all my writing and consulting it's more official. Needless to say I've been slaving away on the computer to get my professional website up and running, as well as meeting deadlines and working with a local PR firm in Houston. Full details to come!
Then we're getting ready to head to Dallas for Labor Day weekend so Mike can go hunting and I can see family and friends! Love that it's no longer six months in between our visits. The highlight of my trip will be getting to see my country love, Roger Creager. If you've never listened to his music, I highly suggest you take a gander 'round his website and check it out.
I attend several of his performances every year, including our annual trip to the Guadalupe river. We partake in a six-hour float down the water in a tube (armed with a cooler full of booze), followed by a typical country night out at Gruene Hall - one of Texas' oldest - headlined by Creager himself.
My bachelorette party in 2006 entailed a Creager concert, followed by some time hangin' out with him and his band backstage. We're best buds, as you can see.
Speaking of bachelorette parties, I got to spend a lovely weekend on the beach in Galveston with several of my favorite gals. (Known some of 'em for 16 years!)
The bride-to-be, also a good friend, ties the knot in October and I couldn't be more excited for her!!! We all had a blast lounging in the sand and the waves - which was just a hop, skip and a jump from the beach house we shacked up in for a few nights.
I love sun and sand and water. Perfection!
Though I occasionally feel a little overwhelmed right now - I mean, I have been living out of a suitcase for nearly a month! - I am very thankful for every day and every experience. The husband and I try not to take all the little things for granted. We enjoy being busy, but we just as much enjoy sitting still and just soaking it all in.
So here's to the "mini-moments" (and memories) that make our lives complete...
