Who gives this woman...

I guess you could say that I haven't exactly fallen head first into the blogging world whole heartedly... too busy, too distracted, too something every day. I have been in wedding mother mode for almost 3 years and loved almost every minute so there are stories to tell and pictures to show. "Who gives this woman....", I think that must have been us!

I will do better. I will let the things that make my head too full come tumbling out onto the page. I will write about the details of the things I've done, the things I'm doing and the things that have happened and the things that I hope don't happen. Stay tuned...

It's Fall, Yall

Finally, after months of heat and humidity, there comes a morning when you open the door to let the dog outside and there is a wonderfully pleasant coolness to the air. You pause at the doorway to take it in for a moment. I love that moment. It signals the end of the hot days of summer and beckons pots of soup and fragrant candles and holidays to come. Because it is Texas, football is already underway having started before the change of seasons but the first game with a nip in the air is as if the season has begun anew.
I have traveled with dear friends in the fall more than other time. Our trip a few years back to Scottsdale and Sedona was my first venture to the southwest and it stays with me. I have a fasination with new places and collect the experiences and time spent with friends like a bracelet of dangling, unrelated charms that together make up a beautiful adornment for my life. My relationships with friends and family are always deeper when we travel together out of our daily routines and into just being ourselves.
This fall I have smaller adventures closer to home but look forward to weddings in Tennesee in Novemeber and at Marlsgate Plantation in December. Although I've been there before, I've not seen all that Nashville has to offer and I've never been to Marlsgate so weddings in these places will be a special blessing for a bounty of reasons.
Did I mention that I love weddings? That's a post for another cool day...

The title of my blog

I am finally starting a blog... something I have wanted to do for some time. We will see how it goes. Lots going on with me right now so here we go...

First, I'd like to explain the title of my blog.

It is the name of something I wrote recently about something that happened to me and how that one event has been so important in the way that I have lived my life and loved every day that followed.
