How Time Flies

Time certainly flies when you're busy having fun. We had the memorial desert trip for Moe. It was intense, fun, sad, wonderful, memorable, emotional, closure. We had a carpet of purple flowers welcoming us on either side of the road as we drove into the flats, it definitely set the tone for the weekend. We knew Moe was there waiting for us. The valleys were covered in purple flowers. Now, I haven't been going to the desert for very long, but some of our friends have been going for close to 20 years. They have never seen purple flowers out there, not like this. Yeah. Intensity. The crack of dawn ride was incredible, watching the sunrise from the top of a dune after being cleansed with white sage by her brother was an amazing experience. Camp was huge, so many people. The ride out to the memorial valley was epic, so many people whose lives she touched. I know she was right there with us, loving every minute of it. I broke my quad. Well, my quad broke, but it wasn't my fault. I think it was Moe's way of telling me I am ready for a bigger bike. That's what I get for showing off for her playing in the dunes above the memorial valley. It makes me smile.

We booked our reception venue last Friday. It's such a relief to have that figured out. We met with a caterer last night and will hopefully have the food booked by the end of next week. Everything will flow together after that, the venue was the biggest obstacle/stresser. I'm getting so excited. We registered for kitchen stuff over the weekend, it was a really fun experience. And, let's be honest, those little scan gun thingies are incredibly fun to play with. The fiance's mom is throwing us a summer kitchen Jack & Jill wedding shower so she needed us to at least register for kitchen related items. I'm looking forward to completing our registration, it really is a fun experience discussing and deciding on the items we would like to have for our life together. It seems so simple, but it's really meaningful and a lot of fun.

Wow! I couldn't agree more. Hope you are relishing all those small moments, registering, choosing your food, and CAKE! So happy for you.

Jaina... Where are the beautiful pictures of the purple desert, and the sunrise? You gave a lovely account of the beauty. But aren't you the "Girl-With-A-Camera, Looking Through the Lens"? Would love to see pictures. I guess you could say, I love pictures.

Have a great day and week.

Denise-We are trying to relish and savor every moment. It's just so much fun.

Ann-They're hiding on my computer at home. I will try to get some up this weekend for you. I have them up to the end of the memorial when I dropped my camera in the sand. I need to take it in to get cleaned.

I'm getting all nostalgic now. Those zapper guns are SO fun. And my home is full of wedding presents even now, nine years later. They're not just things. They're the things we store so many of our memories in.

Kim-They really are fun. I love how you worded it about storing memories, what a wonderful sentiment. I'm sure I will find it to be the same way. :) Am I completely nerdy for being thrilled over our fine china selection?
