Journey

In life, each of us is on a journey. My sister began a journey 3 years ago to become a lawyer. At first, I was perplexed because she never mentioned law as kids. Being sisters we would chat about all kinds of things (boys, future, my faith, etc.). Your sister is the one who knows you. Your secrets, hopes, ¬†and dreams. She’s the one you share your life with. I have been through thick and thin with this girl. I’m beyond proud of the accomplishments and strides she’s made. I always knew she was a smarty. She has always been ambitious.

So in May, I braved traveling with a 6 month old (being a single parent is not my cup of tea). We laughed, went shopping, I got to hang out and play tourist for a day with my parents and grandma. For me, it was nice to my sister and be able to walk along side her in her own house.

The graduation was an experience all its own. From the bagpipes to watching her walk across the stage (thank you Roy for walking my son in the stroller). For my sister, it’s another chapter that has ended and a new chapter that will begin. It’s strange at how as you get older your life seems to go at a rapid pace. I sound so sappy, but apart of me like her will want to lock away these memories in our hearts to remember.

Preparations

He was at the door.

We drove hours (traffic not so fun) to our nation’s capital.

My husband was running a marathon.

26.2 miles.

Crazy!

In my heart I was nervous, but I couldn’t wait to share this journey with him.

We talked, laughed, and arrived in the city. It was pouring rain. Not what I had anticipated to pick up his materials at the North Face Store for the race, but embracing and adapting to change is fun and exciting.

On the way, we found a cupcake shop.

Then set out to find the Lincoln Memorial with our umbrellas in the rain.

The memories of that night I will treasure for years to come.
