A couple weeks ago I went to the Zac Brown Band concert over at Deer Creek (forever named that) with my aunts and cousins.  It has kind of become our summer tradition.  ZBB is my favorite band and I love every single song they write.  They don’t have a ton of songs that speak to me personally, but one in particular certainly does.


…..We drive until the city lights
Dissolve into a country sky
Just me and you

Lay underneath the harvest moon
Do all the things that lovers do
Just me and you

Just as free
Free as we’ll ever be
Just as free
Free as we’ll ever be
Ever be

No we don’t have a lot of money
All we need is love…..

When I listened to this song I had a light bulb moment.  I want to rush into the next step of our lives and I’m not taking the time to enjoy being free with my love.  I instantly texted him and said…LET’S GO TO NASHVILLE!  Our favorite city.  Our favorite getaway.

Of course life is a little more difficult than that.  His work is busy and he doesn’t have the time to getaway.  Money doesn’t grow on trees.  All the typical reasons why you don’t just get up and take a roadtrip.   Hopefully we will be able to soon!

For now I’ll enjoy our FREE time and when the time is right we can move on to the busy preparation of blissful union and then little ones to ourselves.  For now I’ll take the kids at the pool any day and be happy to send them on their way.  For now I’ll enjoy spoiling all the littles ones in our lives and enjoy each others company and being able to sleep in, stay up late, and buy clothes for ourselves instead of little ones.

Just being free…

Fortunate and Free,
