this or something better

the funny thing about plans is that they are in constant flux, at least ours are, and the last few weeks are no exception.  as a couple, we are avid non-planners, and we love it this way.  we made our first plan in months, and decided we would leave june 1st on our highly anticipated cross country road-trip.  we have not left yet!  it is not as though we knew where we would go, we were just going to drive.  north or south, it didn't matter.  we will leave on this great adventure eventually, and each day we wake up and think..."maybe tomorrow."  we are very excited, and the anticipation has us awkwardly giggling like kids when we talk about it.  it will be an adventure, and that is what we crave.  when we were faced with the option of making a great deal of money in exchange for two and a half weeks of our summer, we pretended to be responsible and took the job.  it wasn't easy, and we have decided that life is more fun when you can choose the irresponsible option, haha.  however, we have learned a great deal from these last few weeks.  although we could have been in Canada, or maybe Mexico by now, we have learned that this is life.  this is what makes life beautiful and unpredictable.  life is not black and white.  it is not neatly planned, and to be honest, I don't want to live in a perfectly planned world.  many of the most beautiful moments in my life have been random and unplanned.  we may have altered our plans for the past two weeks, but each day that goes by something new and exciting develops, and our summer becomes richer and richer.  each day is filled with new ideas that send our parents into a panic and make it hard for us to sleep.  my mom keeps reminding me that in life, "it is this or something better."  i am learning what she means.  we can make plans, but if they fall by the wayside it is no big deal, there is something better out there waiting for us.  we are hoping to set sail tomorrow, but we will see.  we have set our heading towards the north.  (we had forgotten how hot it is in the summer when you travel any distance from the ocean!)  we are very excited to be photographing a wedding on the east coast in July, and so we will still have a few weeks to get lost before we put on our freshly pressed suits and act like professionals once again.

we have learned our lesson: no planning for us.  so stay tuned to see where we end up.  we have high expectations and we know we will not be let down.


somewhere "lost" in the backcountry of the sierra's last summer.  it ended in perfection.
