plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

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.
