I’m slowly getting into a groove with my new normal, which also includes getting out on the weekends. We had a pretty full schedule this weekend. Nothing like jumping in with both feet!
This weekend was the 9th annual Oktoberfest in McKinney.
I have two traditions each year. First, we share a pretzel.
Then, we get a root beer at Wild Bill’s Soda. We bought a commemorative mug three years ago. Each year after that, we get $5 of unlimited refills all day. It’s a pretty sweet deal.
We did a lot of other things this weekend as well that spread across a wide spectrum of emotions. We attended a memorial for a friend’s dad which was absolutely beautiful. Grief is a hard journey, and knowing that others are willing to walk with you is an encouraging gift. I also got to see friends that I hadn’t seen in a while at church and went to a board game night on Sunday night. It was a busy weekend, but fun and encouraging. A great start, for sure!
