Life is good.
I sit here this morning recovering from a long hard weekend of second shooting an 8 hour wedding, catching up on the mountain bike race I missed yesterday, and getting excited about everything that I have to do today. It’s summertime, baby, and life is good.
The weekend started with a ride with a friend of mine who is recovering from a knee injury. She has ridden bikes for a very long time and has amazing skill. Too see her on a bike even after almost a year off is inspiring. She just flows. It’s like the bike is a part of her and it works with her every movement. I love riding with her because it makes me better, even on her ‘recovery days’ (which, I should warn that even on a ‘recovery ride’ she is still one of the fastest riders I know and could whup my behind if she wanted to). Bikes are awesome. I haven’t found a person yet I don’t love riding with and who doesn’t teach me something. Awesome way to start the day.
As for the wedding, hard work, yes. But it was a blast. The bride and groom were amazing, the location was to die for (seriously, there were dinosaur bones! This girl carnivore was ecstatic!) but most of all – the couple was SO in love. That was a privilege to be a part of. Oh, and they partied like it was 1999.
Another bright beautiful Sunday followed up with some more off site adventures, trials on charcoal grilling, and just the general continuation of positive vibes. I have a lot of ideas brewing, cool things happening and tons I want to write about! Time to make some time for this old blog and bring you guys some tasty food while I’m at it!
