Our summer has been so full and fun. We have loved living near family during this season. From trips to home towns, to summer vacations, festivals and fairs…it's been so great. A few weeks ago we went to our new little towns summer fair and I snapped these photos. Would you believe that up until 4-ish years ago I had never been to a fair? Growing up in Houston I never noticed fairs…that just wasn't something we did living there. We did, however, go to the Houston Live Stock Show and Rodeo…which is basically like a fair on steroids. In fact, my art was shown there and won awards several times. Not that that's super special or anything because lots of kids did that but still. I am having all these funny situations happen to me that would never happen living in a big city and it's like major culture shock. Like learning that teenager's parents won't let them drive on the highway until they're 18 when I grew up learning how to drive on a highway. Then there's all the people I see over and over again out and about town but I don't know who they are but it's so small I just keep seeing them. Then people complain about traffic here…(this is me giving a major eye roll). Haha. It's all funny to me and living all over the country now it really is interesting to see all the different ways people live life. We really are enjoying life here and have been extremely busy and knowing the fall and holidays are coming up it's just going to get busier.
Life is good. I'm sad to see such a good summer end but I love fall so I'm not that mad about it. Bring on the apple cider, pies, leaves and crisp weather.
