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?
ushering in autumn with pumpkin spice lattes and candles
sneaking in a few rides + walks through the woods and up on the mountains
meditating like a champ – and loving every single morning of it
just being aware of the funkiness + quirkiness that is asheville
having fika with new + old friends
getting my hair cut – in preparation for my 40th birthday in a week!
making three dollar champagne night a tradition. boo-ya.
loving the quiet, still, dark mornings at home
connecting with more coffee professionals in the area – touring roasteries + getting free coffee beans. i love my work perks
dog sitting brady while paige (for the love of wanderlust) is off wandering + hiking in peru. me? jealous? you know it!
going nuts getting my brother’s cute bungalow apartment ready to receive its first Airbnb guests!
drinking mimosas because those first airbnb guests cancelled TWO HOURS before their check-in!!! grrrr!
preparing to photograph a wedding on saturday!!! i’m a photographer! (visited the venue with the bride-to-be… it’s a camp out in the woods + it is amazing!)
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.
