This new lifestyle made for fun adventures this past summer. Thursday evening would roll around and, if I was feeling okay, we'd search the internet for a fun destination, book a hotel and jump into the car after work on Friday. We attempted to seize every available opportunity and take advantage of the good times.
I had really forgotten about this lifestyle shift until this most recent trip to Dallas. Over the past couple days I've been quasi-planning a trip to Austin and simultaneously talking to my family in Houston to see we could wrap a Houston leg into our road trip. As things started to work out with visiting my Houston relatives I was met with adversity from my Dallas family / siblings: Why are you going to Houston? That wasn't apart of the plan? Why weren't we invited?
And that's the whole point; there never was a plan. We live our lives one week at a time and if we find an opportunity that sounds within reach, we take it! There's no certainty in what tomorrow may bring; we don't wait around for things to happen; carpe diem!
My plan turned out so good that now the entire family is meeting us in Houston for a mini family reunion. Should be fun!
