The other day I was in desperate need to just stop running around and get back into books. One of my first friends I met here, we actually started talking because I said I had just moved here from Australia and she told me about one of her favorite authors who was Australian. We both loved the same author and had an instant connection, I actually have two of her books on this post. Anyway, she posted on Facebook asking for book recommendations, I decided to follow along and buy a couple of the books. Some were books that would have caught my eye anyway, while others I would have never picked up.
It is just wedding season at this point. Josh's brother, Jake got married recently. Jake and Jenn came to visit us in Australia two Decembers ago. They had recently gotten back together, and I guess going overseas with someone helps you know, "they are the one." Quickly after they got back to America from their visit, Jake, "put a ring on it." I met Josh through meeting Jake at church group called the "Tweeners" (worst name ever). We were in between college and getting married, and if we didn't stick out enough, they called us a funny name. HA! So Jake and I have always been pretty close.
Josh and I really didn't want to miss the wedding, but we couldn't miss work. So Josh tried to fly out Thursday evening, but Atlanta airport had a different plan. He ended up flying out Friday morning first flight of the day, and I flew out Friday evening last flight of the day.

One of my best friend was while I was in Australia got married recently. I have written about how we met before, but make a long story short, IT IS A SMALL WORLD. Her wedding was a destination wedding since she and her partner live in Brisbane, her family lives here, and they both have lived many other places. It the most international wedding I have ever seen.
The morning of the wedding we jumped on a horse drawn carrage after Cafe Du Monde of course and decided we would learn a little history about the French quarter.
Next on Dad's trip was Savannah. Josh and I went there for Thanksgiving last year, we both commented how my Dad and one of Josh's brothers would love it. So I decided to take Dad for a day.
.As a kid my Dad loved car racing. I remember many summers going to visit him and we heading to the dirt track to watch the normal Saturday night races or the "Grandaddy" of that racetrack, the Showme 100. (The track was in the showme state and they went 100 times around the track. Original, uh?) As I grew up Dad even had his living room decorated in the Mark Martian motif. So when he came to visit a trip to Daytona was a must.

Happily Ever After. So often we see this at the end of Disney movies, read it at the end of books, or during wedding times it is printed on things. What does Happily ever after really mean? I know we all know our life isn’t going to be like Cinderella, Belle, or one of the other Disney princess. The whole movie they are struggling, then they get the kiss that changes everything, and they “live happily ever after.” Why in our minds, do the struggles end at the kiss?
