Thanksgiving

I can't believe Thanksgiving break is finished already!

Breaks always seem to take such a long time to get here and then BOOM, they're gone! It means we're that much closer to Christmas break but between now and then.....this girl has a lot to do.

Since I live out of state, shorter breaks I typically don't go home for. Usually I'll head on over to St. Louis to my sister's house, but this year, I decided to give them some family time alone and venture out to do my own thing. One of my best friends from high school, Scott, was actually in St. Louis working - he is the head audio guy of the Blue Man Group and so he's currently traveling the country with them. Wednesday I packed a bag for one night and met him downtown at the Arch where we had dinner; I was able to see BMG perform and see his passion for his work up close, then we hung out and talked for hours. It had been a few years since we had seen each other, but it seemed like it was just yesterday. Those types of friendships are surely ones to cherish.

Thursday night I headed back to Fulton to hang out with some friends for a bit, then re-packed my bags to head out to the Kansas City area, where I stayed with another friend and his awesome family for a few days. There were three of us extra kids from school there with his family, plus they already had five kids of their own {told you his family is awesome}! We were able to help decorate their Christmas tree, spent some time on their family's farm, and shared so many laughs. It was crazy, I didn't do enough homework, but this is life. And I'm trying my best to live it. Going on random adventures, doing silly things, staying up far too late while laughing with friends...I feel that it's these things and so many more that you remember for the rest of your life, cherish, and want to re-live.

There's a quote that I've recently taken a liking to by Diane Ackerman that at first I kind of shrugged off, but now...it's a completely different story. I don't ever want to be complacent. I want to be on the go, trying new things, never giving up. And currently, this quote sums up how I'm feeling about my life:

 

William Woods has allowed me to experience living the breadth of this moment in my life and I am so grateful for it.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
