the idea of the post is quite free + random. it’s just to write a bit about what’s currently going on. a little what i’m doing/thinking/feeling now. nothing deep, just fun. and i love fun.
→ i am counting my expat blessings. i mean, on any ole regular day, like today, i get to ride my bike to the grocery store. creatively pack all of my groceries on my bike/in my backpack after i am done, ride through a city square amongst beautiful, old buildings, pick up a little pot of flowers for $1.50 at the flower market in the square, smell the autumn leaves, feel the chill in the air, and know that when i get home after my 5 minute bike ride, i can make a yummy cup of coffee and warm up my cold bones.
→ my first paycheck from the photo boutique is sitting on my desk! woo hoo. i brought home some bacon, baby.
→ i’m still in the honeymoon phase of autumn. loving the blanket on my legs. the candles lit in the room. and the cozy knowledge that, even if my love + i are doing separate things, that connection, that love, is always present.
→ it is my dad’s birthday, and my parents are celebrating at the north carolina state fair. oh, how i’d love to cram a fried oreo in my mouth, walk through the pioneer village, see the farm animals, play a few games, take tons of photos, and get a good, down-home feeling from my beloved north carolina. all while celebrating my dad at the same time, of course. missing you guys, so much, mom + dad.
→ i am so looking forward to my yoga training class in stockholm tomorrow (which is actually today as you are reading this). it’ll be my third class, and i cannot wait for 8 intense hours of meditation. i know it’ll blow my mind and touch my soul. and i seriously hope it pushes me into another meditating phase – cause this phase i’m in now of not being able to concentrate is not super fun, y’all. but, it is what it is. and it’s all part of the process. i know, i know. patience.
→ guess who’s starting to really get excited about our halloween party in a week and a half! and then there’s thanksgiving, and then christmas, and then… oh dear lord, i love holidays. and i’m going overboard on my pinterest autumn + winter boards. see them –> here and here.
→ feeling excited + inspired about the new year. i’ve got lots of work and plans for this blog. i’m ready to change some things up and start to offer some courses, tips, series. it’s time to up my game, people. stay tuned for some fun, creative things to help us all live more simply, slowly, and authentically in twenty-sixteen. i am so freaking excited.
→ i am totally binging on friends on netflix as i type this. it’s just my happy place, ya know?
so, what are you up to? care to share what you’re doing currently…
