We're in the middle of a busy period right now. There just simply is not time to get away. Life is moving along at a fast pace, but we're stuck doing mostly things we would rather not do, looking forward to the days ahead when we can go for a hike in Yosemite or a stroll along the beach.
That's just the way it is, though. This is our time for simple pleasures and taking advantage of the moments we get to spend together since work and school demand so much from us at the moment.
Life is good. Just busy sometimes.
