...a girl who has been challenged beyond anything she thought she was capable of. Worry, stress and tears are all things that have been trying their hardest to swallow me whole the past few weeks. Most days, I'm gone 12 hours. Most days, I have every hour filled with responsibility and busyness. Most days, I have to remind myself to just breathe. However, one thing that has been surprisingly absent is self-doubt. I know I can do this job. I know I'll be great. And that kind of makes it all worth it.
...realizing how much I miss writing.
...happy to be married to a man who will just sit with me when I need to cry, listen to me when I need to vent, accept my apologies on days when my temper runs short, make me the best margaritas and laugh with me about pretty much anything and everything.
...thrilled to have had the greatest three-day weekend full of relaxation, delicious food and time with my husband.
...always more content after a morning spent in the sunshine.
...presently planning a tiny craft show with my best friend. This weekend I've been up to my elbows in felt, thread and paper as I attempt to have enough items to offer our friends and family. I haven't made time for crafting at all lately (due to my schedule and general need for time to just zone out at the end of a busy day) and it's been so refreshing to have had time to just create. Our little craft show in in a couple weeks, and I can't wait! Hurrah!
...absolutely going to write a Bloggers in Sin City recap one of these days. Cross my heart. But, in short? It was all kinds of lovely. And incredibly needed. And aggressively delightful.
...hating that sometimes there is really nothing you can do to help someone who doesn't want to be helped. Which is awful to realize and nearly impossible to accept - especially when your heart is so wrapped up in the situation. My emotions are rather tied up in knots these days.
...attempting to spend less, read more, fight negativity.
...going to be giving a tour of my crafting nook later on in the week! Yes, I finally took photos to share with all of you. Yes, it's been forever and I'm an awful procrastinator. Yes, I did some serious cleaning and organization before I took the photos because I would love for people to think I live in a pristine environment. No, you're never going to see photos of our entryway closet.
...quite sleepy, quite often. I would approve of a daily nap time for adults. Amen.
