where to begin?

just a pretty picture from the balloon fiesta last weekend.
that is the question. i have no idea. so much as happened, and i just don't know where to start. it's overwhelming. usually when i know i'm going to sit down and blog i'll think of my post in advance and have an idea of what i'm going to cover. well i haven't blogged in so long that even now i'm at a loss. i've known for a while now that this weekend was coming, that Chris would be out of town that i would have a chance to work out, hence giving me the opportunity to blog.
my summer of love has come to an end...the season not the love. and now fall is here and another busy season has begun.
the whole month of september flew by. Chris had a whole month long celebration of his birthday, and as his girlfriend i took it upon myself to spoil him. birthdays are a big deal to me, and Chris is a big deal to me, put that together and you get a over the top celebration.
along with his birthday month we had some of Chris' friend's come hang out with us from Kearney. and the month ended with a trip to New Mexico. this trip also brought us into October.
the summer has been a crazy one. i think about the short time Chris and i have been together, but how it feels like it has been so much longer. and that's because we've done so much. we've had so many different experiences in the short time we've been together and i feel that all of them have brought us closer.
with the end of the summer i've spent a lot of time reflecting, and all of the life changes i've had over the past three years. it's just insane to think about. from being so lonely, alone, depressed, overweight. wanting to change but afraid to change. starting on this journey, going to the gym, losing weight, making friends, creating a life, and now finding love. it's a lot! what's weird is that it seems to have all happened naturally. that maybe what you put out into the world does come back to you.
i do now definitely believe that good things come to those who wait.
strike! 60min

That's a balloon? WHOA!!! Really pretty!!

You have done so much work in the past few years and now you must RELISH. You deserve every single bit of it. You are worth it all and I am so glad that you finally FINALLY see what the rest of us already did.
