a Couple Thousand Words

This isn't the most flattering picture of my father, but you have to understand, it was very late at night, and he's quite an old man....I'm surprised his eyes were still open!

The other night my Dad and I spontaneously (a word so rarely used in my vocabulary!) decided to go to the street dance in town and break in my new cowboy boots! The music wasn't exactly what we were looking for, but we did get a few good songs in... I love that feeling when I spin, twirling up on the balls of my feet, lights and air blurring into circles. Even when I miss a step or forget to follow, it doesn't really matter, because it all ends in laughter.

Afterwards my Dad actually agreed to go to perkins, even though it was already midnight. I think the thing I love the most about my parents is we can talk about anything. Have you heard the saying about how women use 10,000 words a day? My parents like to joke I use all my words at once, and it's kinda true. I'm a mostly quiet person, but at least once a day, I need to spill...and the people I trust the most are my parents. So I spilled my couple thousand words and Dad managed to stay awake and even respond. :)

I am one blessed girl to have the father (and mother) that I do!


  1. I really like reading this blog...can't believe I am saying that about any blog. I hate blogs.

  2. Your parents are pretty awsome. Jealous.
