Sometimes you just have an absolutely incredible weekend that makes you happy to be a young 20-something with no agenda or responsibilities other than your own.
Under that same token however, I’ve been thinking a lot about being reliable. At one point in my life I thought my dependability was one of my greatest attributes, but in the last few years I’ve noticed that I no longer think that. Maybe it’s because I felt like others didn’t treat me the same or because I thought I was “busy” with school and relationships, but regardless I don’t want to be that person. As I was reading this post, I noticed how true it is–the more reliable and dependable you are, the more you attract the same valuable, consistent, reliable friendships. As we get older, our priorities become clearer, and it’s a lot easier to pick out the ones who will stick around. Sure, we all mess up and have moments of selfishness, but the good friends are worth forgiving.
All this to say that I am incredibly blessed with a group of reliable friends that I appreciate to the end of the Earth. The “weeding out” process isn’t fun, but it leaves you feeling more “full” than ever before.
Friday:: Evette, Meagan, and I spent the evening at the Arts District Spring Break Block Party. We had an adventure of a ride there, where I experienced my first (and probably last) Dallas DART ride. We had beer and sliders from the food trucks, laughed to tears when E sat in gum, and finished the night at the Nasher watching Fantastic Mr. Fox on a blanket under the stars. Perfect start to spring!
Saturday:: Meagan and I decided to steer clear of the chaos of Greenville on St. Patty’s weekend and took 30W to Fort Worth. We started with brunch at Brewed (chicken and waffles, of course!), did a little antique shopping, had fun trying on clothes and jewelry at Beehive, then spent the rest of the night watching UFC at the Pourhouse. We laughed and laughed all day long. When we get together, random things just happen (and sometimes we end up using an emergency exit to escape a bar). To us it was a day in heaven.
Sunday:: Spent the morning watching YouTube videos and laughing with Ellen and Scott, went to a late lunch at The Porch, and spent the last 8 hours of the day watching 24 with Ellen in bed. Perfect end to the weekend!
Sunshine and warm weather is good for the soul!
