Sometimes you have to let things go. But, sometimes you just have to stop, pause, and realize the good that came from the event.
When I originally sat down to do the outline of this post it was going to go in a much different direction. I was getting itchy for another road trip right after my birthday getaway and I couldn’t wait for the adventure that was waiting for me. I was going to go to a place I had never been before (Indiana) to hang out with a girl I had known for NINE years and had never been able to meet up with despite many honest attempts over the years.

This has been one crazy summer. Not only do I feel like it just flew right by me, I also feel it was probably one of my best summers in quite some time. I saw the light, did quite a bit of traveling, got out of my comfort zone and made a lot of new friends and reconnected with the old.

My birthday (July 22) came and went oh-so quickly. I can’t believe it is August. It seems like just yesterday I was knee-deep in winter weather. I can’t believe how hot it has been here in Michigan, and I am trying not to complain about the Oklahoma-like heat wave because I know soon enough it will be winter again. I had a weekend planned to go to Cedarville again. I was looking forward to sunshine, water, friends and tons of smiles.
