There has been so much good lately and I want to remember it!

This weekend I made my way East to Poynette, WI for an amazing wedding. I smothered my boys in kisses and then head out. In all my years, I've never had my own hotel room, by myself or made a similar road trip. I had a huge king size bed all to myself and made an awesome pillow cocoon. Our family loves Tango, which is very similar to FaceTime, but you don't need WiFi.
The wedding was all sorts of mind blowing incredible, I mean INCREDIBLE, plus I got to meet one of my favorite ladies. Andrea and I have "known" each other going on at least 4 years now through our blogs. She is friends with Julia and Erin [who used to blog], who I've dubbed the Milwaukee Crew. I feel like when they get together, I'm with them in spirit . . . which is kind of creepy, given that I've only met Andrea and that was this weekend! To be honest about 1/50th of me was a little nervous that something would be lost this weekend, if either myself or Andrea weren't somehow who we'd expected. You'd think that after 4-5 years of reading someone's thoughts though that I wouldn't have that fear, because it was insanely silly to even consider. Spending the day with Andrea, each of us doing what we love with our cameras, was basically like being able to while the day away with an old friend. A friendship where you knew enough to be comfortable, but there were just enough gaps to continue the conversation, you know, awesome. And, she's even prettier in person.
And then, at 9:30pm, I got back in my car and drove 4 hours home, which meant a lot of throwback rock, like Evanescence and Linkin Park. I was dog tired yesterday, so we wore the boys out with the Slip and Slide Isaac got for his birthday. He had a blast! To round out the evening Levi and Bethany came over for dinner.
Which brings you here. My view of a Large Caribou cold press with added depth charge, sugar free carmel shot and skim milk. This mama is tired this morning and to boot, I forgot my pump at home. :(
Bring on the week of evening appointments and my double weddings on Friday and Saturday!
