I'm starting to get that feeling, that one that rises up in my throat (no, not acid reflux thankyouverymuch) when I feel like I'm being swallowed alive by things and to-do's. The thing is, it's all good stuff. Amazing stuff, actually. We're talking wedding is THIS weekend, people. This is big. And happy. Beyond happy actually. My big sister is getting married.
And yet, while we're so crazy busy these days with everything, I'm still finding the time to do good things for my soul. I'm spending more time exercising. More time with my girls. Enjoying first soccer practices with Em. Being more intentional about little, special things, spending more time planning out our calendar and grabbing a drink with a friend late night and catching up, or whatever. And it's good.
We've (finally) been blessed with some spring-like weather, and I'm going to do one of those dump & run's now. These photos make me happy. It doesn't matter that we just came from the gym, there is no makeup on my face, my hair looks ridiculous, or that Lucy has sweet potatoes smashed into her hair. After dinner last night, we made time to just sit and blow bubbles on the deck. Enjoy the last bit of sunshine for the day. It feels good to be busy, yet somehow feel like I'm still living fully in each moment. I'm sure it'll all come crashing down on me next week when I realize just how behind on life I am. But for now, I'm ok and I'm enjoying.
I do miss writing more often, though. I miss that lots. I hope to get back to it.
For now, I shall channel my writing mojo into one hell of a matron of honor speech. K? Wish me luck.
Until next week, friends.
