Time Out

Sunday, April 24, 2016

Over the past few months, a lot has been going on. With big moments and small moments alike, our calendar has been full of events to attend, things to do and decisions to make. I have felt overwhelmed at the possibilities that lie ahead and grateful for the everyday moments that keep me rooted.

What I have learned over the past few months is that no matter how busy life gets, the only sure way to keep it all together is to make time for those people who really add value to your life. When you feel like you are constantly racing against the clock, it's surprising how a few hours spent with those you love can really slow down time and make you feel like you are right on track.

Here is recap of those special, everyday moments where I was reminded to never be too busy for friends and family. At the end of the day, they are what it's all about.

At the end of March, we celebrated Jerrod and Cameron's birthday by having a little get together at my mom's. There is nothing quite like having a family dinner at home. It's the simplest of get togethers, but for some reason, sitting around the table together, telling stories, you feel like you are right where you belong.

Another great memory from last month is when Shannon got married. Shannon has always been more of a sister than a cousin. I remember her spending weeks at a time with us during summer vacation, and as we got older, we only bonded more. She has had her fair share of heartache, so to see her so happy and in love certainly pulled at all of our heart strings.

Happily ever after!
