Remember awhile back when I wrote a post about talking about your dreams with your partner and making them happen (with a specific discussion of Krista and Steve who were going to take months off from their normal lives to travel around the U.S. and Canada in a VW bus)?
Well, guess what? Matt and I had the sincere pleasure of meeting them in the flesh. Yes, sirree. They came all the way down to Houston and stopped by for an overnight visit. You can read all about their visit on their awesome blog (anyone for a little vicarious traveling?), but I will say that I am super-thankful to have a partner whose values align with mine in a lot of significant ways (not in every way, of course).
For example, when I got an e-mail from Krista a few days before her estimated arrival in Houston, I asked Matt if we could have a pair of complete strangers show up at our house and stay for the evening. He said, "Sure. Why not?" I'm so glad he's up for adventure and connection.
And I'm so thankful that this blogging thing has put me into contact with so many awesome people. I feel fortunate to be connected to all of you!
Happy Thursday, Everyone...
P.S. We didn't make them sit with Hoss in the backseat. I was trying to keep him in the front seat with me, but he jumped back there and they insisted they didn't mind.
