We gathered together for an evening of what was just something you do to support a spouse when it's the season of holiday work functions. It's been a long year. And I know we all say that... BUT... it really has been. And I was reminded this night that it wasn't just me and my husband. It was all of us. Tired warriors gathered together to break bread and build each other back up. We did it. We got through the year. A little worse for wear, but standing in support of what was achieved. And in between clinking glasses and the most delicious meal I may have had this year, I was not expecting to feel humbled and honoured when they gave thanks to spouses for tirelessly supporting the employees. One doesn't always receive thanks for that. And I was caught off guard when I looked around and saw the same weariness I feel and my husband feels reflected in the eyes of the spouses and employees around this table. But the same weary eyes around the table were somehow, despite all the challenges, shining. Full of pride for that which was worked SO hard to achieve this year. Work that cannot be touched or taken away. Reminded once again that we can do hard things. We can be pushed past our limit and then pushed maybe a little more... But then we can gather together and be lifted up and full of so much pride in and gratitude for each other. And I am so glad i got to be part of this magic. It was magical. And healing. On to the next battle, I suppose. With a little practice on how to hold each other through it. 📸 @blossomandfernyarnco
I finally got to see those big dinosaurs on the freeway near Cabazon 🦖🦕
What do you do when you get married on an island, have all your best men, a weeeee bit of alcohol, and you’re just pumped on life that you married the woman of your dreams?
You all go skinny dipping with your dog, that’s what you do.
