You deserve some rest

I don’t know how your summer is shaping up, but mine has been crazy busy. We spent the first few weeks of June making road trips to another town to find an apartment, and then we took off for a vacation. We dropped our bags on a Tuesday and just a few short days later, we headed off for a six-hour drive to see my husband’s family in Odessa. The week we returned was also the week we were making our move.

Now, somewhere in there, we’ve had tons of fun. We fished the Gulf of Mexico and went snorkeling. We took pictures with colorful welcome signs and overall, had a blast. With all the changes happening around us, we’ve realized that we’ve marked one year of marriage and one year working at new jobs. As much as that deserves inshore fishing trips and a week at the beach, it also means we deserve some rest.
