Friday Jams

I’ve been waiting for what seems like a year for this weekend. I’ll be heading to Michigan for one of my pilot’s wedding which means not only do I get to celebrate the very special day of  one of the people I most respect and admire in this world (and his awesome girl) but I get to spend time with a large portion of my Top Gun crew.

I adore my pilots. Nowhere else in life have I been able to watch the drive and determination of a whole group of people who so carefully keep their eyes on the prize. That they do so with such character and humor makes them all the more special. The fact that one is currently out of the country and will be dearly missed will make our time even that more special and I’m so thankful for it.

I’m excited to hear about their adventures and their lives and just be enveloped in their craziness. So a little Top Gun to kick off the weekend seems appropriate.

Enjoy the weekend.

‘I am’ is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that ‘I do’ is the longest sentence?
