Summer 2019 ended in the best possible way. Four days of love, music, friends, and food. First, we drove to Grand Junction, CO to see Amos Lee in concert on Friday night. He's been my #1 for over ten years, and this was my second time watching him perform live. In addition to the concert, I had the opportunity to meet him after the concert. He's an incredible musician, and an overwhelmingly kind person.
Sunday evening, we invited our wonderful new neighbor friends over for dinner. I'm grateful we've met them and hit it off so quickly. I love having great friends right down the street.
Monday, our other great friends invited us over for a Labor Day barbeque. It's so necessary to occasionally let down your guard, and laugh and unwind with the right people. Friends are priceless blessings, never to be taken for granted in this crazy, messy world.
I feel refreshed and ready to return to the office this week, and tackle my first online class, thanks to a perfect end-of-summer weekend. Memories were made and will be wrapped in gratitude and stored away. Fall is my favorite season, so I'm not usually sad to leave summer behind. But I'm just the tiniest bit melancholy about it this year, after such a joyous weekend. I felt so much love in each moment, and now I feel the ache of missing it all just as strongly.
PS. In case you don't know...
