one of the things i was doing during my virtual absence in may was visiting my family in texas (where i happened to snap the photo above).
a lot of things are changing in my family right now and its exciting and unsettling, happy and a little sad...all at once. my younger sister is moving off to college, my youngest sister is entering her teenage years and my parents are moving to a new home.
i've always embraced change in my life, looking forward to the new. but for the first time, while visiting texas, i found myself doing a little looking back and feeling a little sad that despite how bright our future is, nothing is really ever going to be the same way it was.
