It’s crazy to think we are about half way through wedding season already and, wow, is it crazy as ever (as usual really). Totally crazy amazing, mind you. I am so so lucky to work with the most ahhh-mazing couples, I leave wedding after wedding on cloud nine, creatively fulfilled, more grateful than ever to be a part of such a precious and special time in couple’s lives, and heart happy! I am oh-so-thankful to be crazy busy, bring it on!
But we are still trying to work on that whole work life balance thing….balance is so not my forte! So, in the name of making a life, I asked the spouse for a bit of time for just us this weekend after weeks upon weeks of nonstop work (for both of us). I honestly didn’t care what we did, I just wanted it to be us and not have pack our days with nonstop events. Truly, just sitting on the couch together would have made me happier than ever. But, K picked me up downtown after the loveliest morning elopement (coming to the blog soon!) and told me we had to go home and change because she had plans for us. I was totally surprised because I didn’t expect her to actually plan something for us! I just thought we would end up at the movies or a local restaurant. But, instead, she surprised me with taking me to my first ever county fair! As a born and raised city girl, I’ve never been to a county or state fair! And novelty or not, I always wanted to go to one! I’ve been talking to her about it for years…mostly about cuddling blue ribbon baby piggies. So, when we arrived at the county fairgrounds and I slowly realized what was happening, I was more excited than ever. My total exhaustion faded away (the glass of wine on the way there definitely helped) and I lit up like a little kid. Adventures with my love are my absolute favorite! Cuddling the tiniest little piglet (You guys, it was WAY smaller than it looks in the photo, sooooo tiny!), munching on yummy grilled sweet corn, cheering on some bull riding rodeo fun, live music on a beautiful night, and holding hands with my love everywhere we went….total date night success!
