I might have fallen a little bit in love with Kansas City this weekend. Andrew and I took a quick trip this weekend to celebrate his cousin’s high school graduation. We ate a lot of good food, window shopped and spent an afternoon at the art museum. It was the perfect little getaway. Very few things can top an agenda free weekend in a new city with your guy.
Now it’s back to to do lists, dishes and laundry.
I love goals. I love rewarding myself after completing the tasks I’ve set out. But usually the task is a means to an end, for example: clean the bathroom, and then you won’t be embarrassed when you mom visits. But while cleaning, I never think to myself, gee, I sure love scrubbing the toilet. College was so not like cleaning the bathroom. Few times in my career as a student did I long for this day. I didn’t want it to end, I still kind of don’t. I’ve loved every minute of my time at Maryville, except for maybe the time I spent in web design (ack!). This journey has been the best of my life, and while I’ve only lived a third, or maybe a fourth of my life, and I know great things are to come, I think I’ll look back on these years as fondly as I am now.
Welcome baby, Nate. We’re so glad you’re here. Keep growing little dude. XO!
