Wow, what a weekend. I have many stories and photos to share that will probably trickle in here and there, but ultimately, the weekend was amazing, fun, lovely, funny, sad, bittersweet, scary at times, delicious, adventurous, mosquito ridden, family awesome, roadtrippy, great. Ultimately, I gained a greater understanding of myself and how happy I am in my life and how lucky and blessed I truly am. I mean, I have this realization fairly often, but it just felt different this go round. I feel more mature. More adult. And I have a newfound desire to keep stress out of my life and not deal with any unneccesary drama. Life is beautiful, fragile and ever changing, and we just have to take each day and go for it. Be present in it. Live it.

Cause man, it is beautiful.
