been away for so long....

but i'm back!
So much has been going on over the last couple of weeks, so I am going to do a short recap... mostly so I can look back and remember. First I must give a nod to TEXODUS, which was what we decided to call our departing celebration, it happened Aug 1 and started with an awesome cookout at Jana's house hosted by our sweet parents that came in town for the festivities, and ended with a 10 band show at a local favorite, Bash's, showcasing some of Lubbock's local talent... and it was amazing. You can read more about the show from an onlookers perspective HERE, I can not even begin to explain.

What I will do is show you some images from the show, shot by Mr Ruben Castillo, photographer extraordinaire. You can also check out his blog HERE. This man captures some amazing things during live music.

I was asked up on stage with Thrift Store Cowboys to sing a song with them, and loved every second of it!

And this is the craziness that erupted on our last song... nice!

I would also like to mention that for our last show I had the honor of wearing a custom headband created especially for me by another AWESOME photographer I know, Cristy Cross.

In homage to our time in Lubbock (or something like that) the day after TEXODUS... Kyle decided it was time to cut his hair.

... then we moved to Virginia.
I promise much more in the days to come BUT here are a few images from our first days here in Richmond. (BTW... no worries, we now have water!)

The first Sunday we were here, after brunch, K and I decide to ride around on our bikes just to see what there was to see... and we ran into Richmond's WATERMELON FESTIVAL. yummy.
our alley and neighbor's weird greenroom thing... I MUST get in here.
and me.
