Oh my goodness!
I can't believe it's been so long since I last wrote!
Here's what I've been up to:
An incredible wedding shower thrown by the lady on the left for the lovely lady in the middle:
Heading right into the bachelorette party at the Loring Pasta Bar for some tasty treats:
The next day, I got to see this incredibly talented lady perform her leading role in 42nd Street at the Bloomington Civic Theater:
then hung out with her sweet husband and got breakfast for dinner, along with coffee and milkshakes!
I got to go crazy on celebrating Birthday Week for my guy (because birthdays are SO big they have to be expanded to a week)!
Then we spent the weekend up in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, camping and canoeing and enjoying each other's company without papers and homework and grading and jobs and dance.
Instead, we cuddled by the fire while we watched the sun go down. In today's fast-paced world, slowing down like this is a must.
Of course, paddling 15 miles isn't too bad of a workout, either.
Back at it this week (and it's already Tuesday!). I was happy to take Ferris Bueller's advice this last weekend:
"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it."
True words, Mr. Bueller.
