A typical day out on the trail. Aspen gets so excited that he runs around and around in circles and then can’t seem to contain his excitement so he jumps on either Sarah or me in an attempt to wrestle us and then chase him through the forest. I’m wondering if our kids will be like this one day
She has a quiet strength about her that is an absolute gift, especially to our marriage. It was her strength and confidence that led us to Austin 18 months ago; I’ll be honest I went kicking and screaming like a fearful kid scared of the unknown. We had questions we wanted to get answers for, and rocks we wanted to turn over together, and we did just that. This last season has been one of the most pivotal seasons for us and our marriage, and one that I would never take back nor do I regret even for a second anymore. It’s been a season of healing and growth. We’re on the road now back to Colorado, as different people than we we were when we left last summer. And as we drive along the desolate roads of Texas towards the Rockies of Colorado I’m reminded of the gift this girl is, and I’m overwhelmed with joy about what is too come.
A smile hasn’t left our boy @aspenthemountainpup’s face since we told him this would soon be his backyard. We’ve got quite the week ahead of us packing up all of our things, but we’re full joy and eager to get back to views like this.
PS, our house here in Austin is still available for rent starting 11/1. Send us a DM is you or anyone you know is interested!
Amidst a crazy season of decision making, Sarah and I have fought for time to unplug and rest. Sometimes a week of turning off your phone and falling a little behind on emails is exactly what your soul needs. Our last trip to the Pacific Coast was just that for us.
As if this month hasn’t already been full enough with launching @TheLawrenceHouse, we’re stoked to share with you that we’re making the move to Colorado to make the Rocky Mountains home again! A simple Instagram caption could never communicate how grateful we are for the last 18 months in Austin, in fact it’s probably safe to say that ATX is one our favorite cities on the planet. In some ways it’s been the hardest 18 months of our lives, in others it’s been one of the greatest seasons of joy. To everyone that gathered around our table week after week and brought us in like family, you know who you are, and you know we love you. We leave Austin with a stronger marriage, a full heart and with friends who feel more like family; for that it’s a total win in and of itself. Here’s to the road ahead my friends, may it be a joyful one
PS, we’ll be selling some of our things over at @lawrencehousegoods, give it a follow to be kept up to date.
