…searching for a new book to get lost within. I haven't made any time for reading in the past several months (or year, if we're being honest here) and I miss that feeling of not being able to put down a book because I'm so wrapped up in the story.
…feeling a bit more like myself these days. I have more moments of calm, which have been a long time coming.
…also continuing to be highly emotional and have managed to channel Kate Gosselin entirely too often while in fits of hormonal drama. My poor husband. Despite everything, he still claims to love me "nonethelesser", so, for that I am grateful.
…making plans for a bunch of new shop goodies. Creating new items takes twice as long these days, as the process if often interrupted by the wee one, but I've been craving that creative process which is always so fulfilling. So, I figure adding at least a bit of craftiness to each day is doable. I want to do so much more with my crafts; it's just a matter of putting the pieces together.
…discovering the double-edged sword that is post-partum hair regrowth. I mean, honestly. While my hairline is no longer receding, it is kind of a hot mess of random wispy hair. Also, I'm this close to breaking down and spending too much money on highlights because I generally feel like poo when it comes to my hair situation. (I know. Vanity. We all have our moments. Don't judge me.)
…going to be published! Ahhh! Early next year some of my crafty goodness will be featured in a book. Once I have more details, I will definitely be sharing them with you! For now, I am just absolutely over-the-moon to have accomplished one of my creative goals.
…missing country living. I'm rather tired of hearing traffic all day long.
…pretty sure Eisley will be walking within the next couple months. She is crawling all over, easily pulling herself up on furniture, walking along the couch when she stands, and…I'm not sure I'm ready for this. She is just too eager to explore, it seems!
…trying to keep a level head. Finding (and keeping) perspective can be tricky.
…thankful for inside jokes, new (to me) gold flats, grilled cheese and avocado sandwiches, sisters, afternoon sunshine, and a clean kitchen.
