Been busy planning a wedding and forgot all about ranting on here!
Work has been so crazy; almost as if I don’t have time to think or do anything else really. I eat, sleep and breathe it, which isn’t good. But, hey, I have a job, so no complaining.
I keep reminding myself that my wedding (which has no date yet) is still a year and a half away and I do not need to plan everything right now. I guess I’m just too excited.
Well, nothing eventful has honestly happened lately that is worth talking about or ranting/raving. I’m sure I’ll think of something soon…
So the blog has taken a backseat to life…what’s new?
I recently spent a wonderful weekend with three of my favorite people in Keystone, CO. It was meant to be a break from life, a peek into the future and just a time to enjoy with old friends. It ended up being that and so much more.
It is amazing how in a matter of three days your life can completely change. Luckily for me, it was a good change. On February 15th, around 4:15 p.m. MT, on top of the main peak in Keystone at the beginning of the Frenchman run, B asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. I of course said “Yes!”
It was a moment to remember (and one I will, of course, always remember). The sun was setting, the view was perfect, the company was perfect and I was sitting next to my best friend in a State that we so dearly love. I could not imagine a better way to start a new chapter in our lives.
I just cannot wait to begin the wedding plans, but most of all, I cannot wait for this to come full circle, beginning with a marriage proposal and ending with a move to a new city (Denver).
It is amazing the things that can happen in one weekend. In just a measely 3 days, lifes are changed, friendships start, relationships break, cars are damaged, someone wins an award, you see people you haven’t seen in ages.
In one weekend, I have realized who matters, who doesn’t, what makes life special, who my best friends are, who I miss, who I am and who I am not.
I love movies like “He’s Just Not That Into You.” It puts things into perspective. Or CDs like The Fray’s new one. Maybe I am a sap, who knows, but what I know is that I want to be happy and I want the people I love to be happy. When they aren’t happy, my heart breaks, who ever they are.
It is hard to embrace change, but it can be so refreshing, and a reminder of who you were or who you are becoming. Welcome it and remind yourself that to grow, you must change.
Never have I wanted a week to be over. Funny thing is the week I’m referring to has not even started yet (next week). As Colorado inches closer, I am losing my patience. I just need the mountain air, good friends and Brady. I need a weekend of peace, laughter and memories.
I leave for Colorado in less than two weeks. I am really excited first off, because it is Colorado and I love that state more than anything. Secondly, I get to see two of my favorite people in the world and one of my best friends.
I really thing this vacation is going to be the beginning of something wonderful. For several months now, B and I have been looking for jobs and apartments in Denver and I really feel this can get the ball rolling for us. We have talked about moving for over a year (not kidding) and I think this visit is going to be a catalyst among other things.
We will also get the chance to ski/snowboard, which I honestly have not done since high school. My board is still in such great shape because I haven’t gotten the use out of it that I could have. I am going to come back so sore. I am just hoping I do not get hurt so I can still run the St. Louis Half-Marathon in April. Fingers crossed.
I wish we were going to have a little more time in Denver to look around, get some ideas, but mostly this trip is going to be good for the both of us. A change of scenery and considering we haven’t had a vacation together in quite some time, a good fire starter, I guess you could say. This month we are celebrating two years of being together (where did they go?). So, Colorado, friends and us will make for a fantastic time and memory.
