As the temperature drops this week in Dallas, it's hard to think that last weekend I was driving a jet ski and going for a sunset boat ride at a friend's lake house in South Texas! We were celebrating my roommate's recent engagement over the weekend- a restful few days out of the city was just what I needed. It's always a good day when the biggest struggle is which swimsuit to wear ;)
Yes, I made everyone wait while I took pictures of our food. A few people were assigned to each meal throughout the weekend, so kitchen responsibilities were spread out; every meal was delicious! These amazing pumpkin pancakes (above) were made by my friend Greg, who also builds custom furniture (he's handy AND cooks!). You should visit his website… actually you probably shouldn't because then you'll be jealous that I'm friends with him and you're not. Well, check it out anyway.
Y'all. Let's talk about how amazing it is to have a table that easily seats 14 people- what a dream! I could host dinner parties here every single night! I loved sitting down for meals together with these friends.
This was my first time to drive a jet ski. I'm a pretty aggressive driver on the road, but it turns out that I'm super scared of being thrashed by the water, so I played it safe on the jet ski.
I think my favorite part of the trip was getting to know one of my girlfriends a little better. You know how sometimes you can know someone for a long time, but never really get to know them deeper? Well, I finally got to know this friend a little better! It was such a good reminder of how faithful God is to bring certain people into our lives during different seasons; I was so encouraged by our conversations, especially during what is turning out to be a season of transition for me. I love being able to look back at times of uncertainty in my life and see that those times are when the most growth has happened. I know this time will be no different :)
