For some reason or another, after writing my last blog post, I was more self conscious about my writing than I've ever been. I even asked Nate to read over it. I asked him if it was too long. He said he didn't know a blog post could be too long. He never even read it before I posted it. Since I mainly started this blog as a personal project and as a way to fill my grandparents in, I never really think twice about who reads/views it. I always insist to Nate that no one ever reads it. He always insists back that lots of people do.
It was such a blessing that on the blog post that I was the most hesitant to write, I got the most positive feedback. I've never gotten so many Facebook and Instagram comments - even if it wasn't my most read post. My friend Cyle always told me that the greatest form of flattery towards your creative work is for people to simply take the time to view and appreciate it. I finally understand what he means.
Thank you guys! Thank you for making it easy to be open and vulnerable. Thank you for taking time out of your day to read my thoughts and view my pictures. Thank you for caring enough about me to want to know what's going on in my life. I don't have the most popular blog ever, but I am so blessed to have friends, family, aquaintance and a husband who encourage me to do what I love and then share it.
On a completely different note, here are the pictures from the spring break trip my family took to San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico.
Last year at this time, Nate and I lived in Denver, volunteered at Joshua Station, and both attended school at the University of Colorado Denver. For spring break, Nate joined my family on a trip to visit my Grandparents who live on a huge lake in Texas! The day we returned to Durango, Nate proposed at our favorite look out.
Here we are, one year later, living in Durango in our first apartment, happily married. Can you believe so much can happen in a year?
For spring break this year, Nate again joined my crazy family on a vacation to San Jose. In an attempt to avoid the spring break crowds, my mom booked a beautiful house overlooking the ocean in this beautiful little town about an hour away from Cabo San Lucas. Although we had to cope with some really loud construction, undrinkable faucet water, and a lot of Forced Family Fun, we had a picture perfect vacation filled with whale watching, sun bathing, cousin time, too many tacos, swimming, a van crammed full of family, hot tub soaks, late night movies, surfing, and farm to table restaraunts.
It was the bomb.
All of these pictures were taken on my iPhone 5s and were edited with VSCOCAM. The full gallery can be found here.
