Last week was a weird week for me since I only spent one day at my desk. The rest of the week was spent in meetings or in classes. Hopefully this week will be more normal and I'll have more time to write.
With the September 11th ten year anniversary, I'm sure everyone had an interesting weekend. It was wonderful to walk through the mall and have American flags handed to me and to turn on the tv and see all of the patriotism. I can't believe it's been 10 years since that day -- I remember it like it was yesterday and I'm sure everyone else can as well. I hope everyone remembers the pride that Americans showed in the days following the attacks and we continue to show that pride through the next 10 years.
This weekend was my friend Maria's wedding!! I can't believe she is finally married! (When training for our half-marathon last year, we were both planning our weddings and hers seemed so far away).
Friday night was the rehearsal dinner and Jarrod's family showed all of the out-of-towners how to party Texas style. We ate Tex-Mex and everyone wore cowboy boots.
The wedding was Saturday and Maria looked stunning! The ceremony was very traditional with tons of music and then we went over to the Petroleum Club Houston for an amazing reception. She and Jarrod make a gorgeous couple and I'm so happy for them.
Sadly, Maria had to move to North Carolina yesterday and there were more than a few tears shed leading up to the wedding and on Saturday night. I'm going to miss her like crazy :(
Since it's fall (well, the once-again triple-digit weather doesn't seem to agree), I thought I'd follow a fall motif. Here are the two paintings I did yesterday.
What did you do this weekend? Do you have any hobbies that you've taken up recently?
