gatherings the sacred everyday

hanging out together

16 Sep 2014

how has a week passed already?! i promise that it is not my intention to post only once a week. i mean, in all reality, you may not care. you may even like it better. but, i don’t. i really, really loved when i posted practically every day. it was not only a way that i stayed connected to myself and all of my thoughts, but i have always literally pictured you, my readers, as i write. i feel as if i am writing little letters to you all when i post more frequently, and though there are many of you that i have never met, i feel like this is where we come to “meet” each other. so, ultimately, i miss hanging out with you all.

speaking of hanging out, i don’t feel like i’ve done so much of it lately. i feel super busy with all of that regular life stuff that i’ve been craving so much. now, let me make this clear, in no way am i complaining about having my regular life back. i’m just saying, it’s been busy. more busy than i feel it’s been since we moved back to asheville, i believe. but, it’s mostly all good. so, what have i been doing?

what’s happening in your life? how has it been for you this past week? talk to me, friend. i’m listening. and, i promise to not be so silent here as much as i have been. it’s felt good to catch up a bit. (wouldn’t it be amazing if we could meet for coffee or wine one day soon?!).

love + peace.

      I just love this comment to pieces, Holly! It was like receiving a pen pal letter from my favorite pen pal! Isn’t it fun to keep in touch and up-to-date?!

      Oh, i”m so glad that you and your girl are having a holiday for a week! Where are you off to? I know that you two will enjoy every single minute together – and you both deserve it!

      My birthday is the 24th, so Gemma’s is just before mine. 🙂 Give her birthday wishes from me and my love! xoxo

    Maybe I have suggested it before, but you should be on the visitors bureau payroll for making Ashville look so appealing!

    My wife has been a little jealous this week, she says I have been spending to much time with my new girlfriend. I spent a little extra money to get her (my girlfriend) a makeover and she looks amazing. Please keep in mind though that my new girlfriend is a stand-up bass I recently bought. I named her Dolly. Wish I could show the before and after pics. Anyway, have a good day…..Joey
