Hitting the open water

Sorry for the gap in posting.  All of the big events we have coming up are starting to catch up to me as far as being busy… Last semester of grad school, real estate work, wedding planning ( it just hit me that we are only two months away), and house planning (we are getting closer to finalizing our built spot, which is crazy exciting but means more decisions as far as plans go)…. So all of that is keeping us pretty busy.

We did sneak away yesterday to have a little Sunday Funday with some friends.  We went kayaking down the river in our hometown.  It was such a beautiful day and the perfect break from lots and lots of reading and before I had to start my case study analysis (BOOOO).

This was the first time Taylor got back in a kayak since being at the hospital.  This time we did it all on our own, no help with physical therapist or occupational therapist.  It wasn’t in pool.  It was Taylor and myself working as a team and getting out on the open water.  Taylor summed it up perfect as he enter the water, he said, ” FREEDOM!”
