What matters.

I love the Pendleton Round Up and all that the 2nd week in September brings.

While some people choose to get out of town and avoid the craziness, we were {crazy} enough to stay and partake in most of it. Happy Canyon each night, the parades and Round Up performances are the best way to spend the second full week in September if you ask me.

And while the flowers didn't get watered regularly, my laundry basket overflowed and my floors didn't get swept until Sunday, it didn't matter.

Friends and good times mattered. And we were filled with both.

I'll put up more pictures this week, but here are some of our {multitudes} from our week of Round Up.
