This week has been one of the worst weeks I've had in a really long time. It will go down as one if the worst ever, actually. Sometimes when these storms roll in you have to figure out how to pick yourself up and keep pushing along.
This morning, we woke up at my house and decided to drop everything.
I had tons of work to catch up on.
Our house is a wreck.
We needed to go to the grocery store.
We needed to get so. many. things. done.
But we just said screw it.
Instead, we got in the car and headed to the zoo. It may not seem like that is a big deal, but trust me--it was. The Nashville Zoo is extremely significant to our family. We were one of the first families there this morning and spent several hours walking, laughing, enjoying each other...just the 4 of us. It was so nice to be there so early when there were no crowds and the animals were playful. The day was beautiful, our kids behaved perfectly (for once), and it was a tiny bit of healing that I needed this week.
Standing in the spot where we got married... September 15, 2007.
It was a good day.
