MEMORIAL DAYS


"You'll need coffee shops and sunsets and road trips. Airplanes and passports and new songs and old songs, but people more than anything else. You will need other people and you will need to be that other person to someone else, a living, breathing screaming invitation to believe better things."

Memorial day was spent with Colorado friends this year, and that time was so good for my heart. We spent a day just being together, soaking up all of the sunshine we could get our hands on, hiking our little hearts out, attempting (on my part) to slack line at the park, and getting in a few good belly laughs.

This move has only increased my understanding of the need for community. It has been so important for me to be around people, and these three, among others, have continued to be there for me. This week I was so grateful for their thoughtfulness, understanding, and love. They help to make this place home.













Have you ever slack lined? If so, are you any good at it? I am not, but I want to learn! :) What do you and your friends/family do on weekends like Memorial Day? Do you stay home and play games or get outside for an adventure? What are some of your favorite outdoor activities?

It scares me a little, but I really want to get better at it! And by better, I mean at least be able to stand on it without holding onto someone for dear life.
