We celebrated Labor Day by finally dusting off our longboards and cruising down Provo Canyon. It's been over a year since we last long-boarded. I can't believe that so much time has already passed since that last venture down the canyon. A year ago we were filled with the anxious excitement of being newly engaged and now we've been married for nearly a year (whoo-hoo)! I wouldn't necessarily suggest boarding the canyon on a labor day weekend unless you feel pretty comfortable on your wheels. There were people everywhere! Bikers, walkers, runners, strollers, babies, boarders-- the whole of Utah was wedged onto those little bike trails in the mountains. I almost got trampled by a gang of bikers (they weren't very good at sharing the trail) and Taylor was run off the trail a couple of times by other boarders who weren't very good at paying attention. But all in all, it felt good to be cruising the mountain trails again. It felt good to feel the cold nip of air slowly sneaking through the trees. It felt good to just forget about all the important "adult" stuff that we're supposed to worry about and pretend like we were in high school again.
Life gets pretty hectic pretty fast. But I think it's possible to slow down time; you just have to be doing something you love while being surrounded by people you really care about. So I've made it a goal to slow down the time in my life as often as I can.
