it's amzing what happens in a year....
Tonight I am feeling very reflective of what has happened in my life over the past year. A year ago on Memorial Day I spent the afternoon with my brother kayaking in Mt. Pleasant. It was a really good day filled with adventure and good conversation. I remember thinking that I would just sit back and relax while he guided the kayak. Much to my surprise the kayak's we used were one person-ers. So I had to steer my own. I'm not a fan of deep water and I'm not the best swimmer so I was freaked out. Brandon was really patient with me and had confidence in me. And I did it! We had a great time together and it was on that kayak trip that we decided to go on the road trip.
Today I had the family over for lunch and to celebrate. This year on Memoria Day we worked on packing my apartment, taking stuff to Goodwill and putting together wedding invitations. It was really nice to enjoy the time together. I try to savor each moment that we have together because I realize that I will be moving and getting married really soon.
As I sit here alone in my apartment I am wondering what next year will be like. Sometimes I get ahead of myself and have to take a step back. It's a good thing I have people in my life who help me get a hold of reality once in a while and aren't afraid of giving me a reality check. The move has been stressful and it has really helped having my family here to help through it all. A year from now I will be married and living with the love of my life. I can't wait to see what adventures will come our way together.
