the weekend before wedding weekend had just begun.
my last day at work came to a close & i drove home.
i met rachel for a quick afternoon run, & then it was time to go.
the three of us jumped into the truck & headed west.
we made it to the twisting, turning, water-lined drive.
and then, there were some of our oldest friends.
dad maneuvered the boat out onto the water.
and then we saw the sun sinking behind the horizon.
and as planes flew in over the water, i hurriedly clicked this out:
now that the sun is going down the twinkle lights are coming out across the water.
and really, the evening was as simple as that.
