Out Living Life

I had a post planned for today, but it did not get written. Instead, I had an impromptu date with my husband last night! 

We drove 130 miles yesterday afternoon to watch my son's high school soccer game. Before heading home after the match, my husband and I decided to go out for dinner.  The soccer teams traveled by bus, so my son actually got home before we did. 


An action setting on a camera is a wonderful feature when photographing sporting events!
I have read that bloggers sometimes need to step away from blogging, and live life, so they have something to blog about! I agree. 

Yesterday was a good day of “living life.”  I spent a warm and sunny afternoon watching an exciting soccer game. (Our team won, so my son and his friends were happy.) My husband and I spent some quality time together, and we enjoyed a delicious meal. In fact, the food was so good that perhaps I will even write about the restaurant in a future blog post!


My husband and I, after a wonderful meal of international flavors!
The post I had planned to write for today will just have to wait - until this afternoon, or even next week. 

If ever you visit this blog, and I haven't published new content as consistently as I usually do - rest assured that I haven't stopped writing. I am just out living life - and coming up with more topics to write about.


Montana is a big state! How far do you usually travel to attend your kid's sporting events?

This post may be linked to one of the great link-up parties I follow and list on my blog. Check them out!

  1. I'm always amazed at how far you have to go to watch sporting events! Cross Country has lots of invitationals - this weekend they travel to Wenatchee which is about 2.5 hours away, but we're not going to that one. I loved this post and I'm so glad you had such a nice day. Love the picture of you and your husband! Have a great weekend!

    1. We are amazed by the distances we travel, as well! But you get used to things being spread out in Montana. I hope Cross country goes well this weekend! The series you are doing on your blog is such a great idea - I am going to share it on Facebook today, and add my five places to visit there :)

  3. Love it. Life is indeed there to be lived, savoured, relished and cherished.

  4. It passes by so quickly - we need to grab every minute and make the most of it ... even if that means doing nothing sometimes!

  5. A good reminder to step away from the screen and engage ourselves in the business of life!

  6. Yeah. Alberta's pretty much the same. Wide - open - spaces. What a lovely picture of you and your husby! And what a good idea. Go out and live life. Someday, I may do that . . . :)

    1. Montana reminds me a lot of Alberta - just a little more arid! At least our highways are not crowded. Seems like you have lived life well, Diane, by all accounts on your blog!

  7. Great picture of you and your husband! I think it's great that you had such a fun spontaneous day! We don't travel very far for most sporting events. I'd say a few hours a couple times a year is the farthest. I love watching my kids play though, so I can see why you'd want to be there for your son!

    1. Thanks Marie. We do travel a lot. But, you sort of get used to it, and it has provided us with a lot of good family trips.

  8. Fortunately we don't need to travel very far for our children's sports. Knock on wood!

    What a lovely post, and I'm so glad you shared it at Motivation Monday.

  9. I haven't had to go to a kids sporting event in years! I was supposed to go to my neighbor's childs football game last night but I was running a bit of a fever and Mr. Paranoid wouldn't go. He is so protective I told him it was from the excitement of watching football that I love...he didn't buy it. I took a break from writing all day Saturday didn't turn the computer on, not even the phone. When I woke up Sunday morning all the clogs in my brain that weren't sinus related had opened and I have been writing like crazy this week. Need a week for just the book, I can't get back into the right mindset so I am just letting it simmer for right now!
