South by Southwest

I had the privilege of attending a work related conference earlier this month in Austin, Texas. Whenever I go to conferences (I attend about three a year) I try to take my sweet wife with me so that she gets some time away from the children and can enjoy a short "vacation" from them. It is also a little selfish because I like spending the evenings after the conferences are over with her rather than by myself.  The only problem is that she sleeps most of the time, however, since we have three small boys I don't blame her for being tired and trying to catch up on some sleep. Thankfully I was able to bring my wife with me to this one and she got plenty of sleep.

I love being with my sweetheart and I'm grateful she was able to go with me to Austin (we were there at the same time the South by Southwest festival was going on and Austin was a mess with traffic and people because of the festival. My advice is don't go to Austin during the festival unless you're there to participate in it). It's a pretty city and we enjoyed the few days we spent there. Here are a few pictures we took while we were there (isn't my wife beautiful?!).
 

 

The point of this is that we need to try harder to spend time together. My wife and I are very busy serving in our church, raising three boys, building my career, and trying to help others that we have to really try to spend time together and focus on our friendship. And I'm sure we're not the only married couple in the world that is really busy. Be creative, have fun, think outside of the box, and most importantly just cherish what time you do have together. We loved being together in Austin and we look forward to the next little get away where it's only the two of us.
