Another week gone, filled with ups and downs and events left and right. It all sort of blurred together, but we made sure to slow down a bit for a date night and walks around the neighborhood. I enjoyed myself, though at times it was a challenge. As an introvert I often wish for more alone time to recharge than I’m able to get. I gave in to a lot of my negative emotions last week and failed to do the things I know to be helpful. This week has been just as chaotic but I’m doing my best to get through it all feeling less overwhelmed.
Today we’re headed to my brother-in-law’s graduation and then off on a four day vacation! We haven’t been out of town overnight in a year and I’m so thrilled to get the chance to relax with my love in Raleigh, Durham, and Asheville. We’ll be going to a wedding, visiting family, and celebrating our eighth anniversary. Is it silly to talk about how quickly time flies? Because it really, really does. Yet somehow I can barely remember what I was like 8 years ago. Always moving forward, always changing.
A few nights ago we watched The Last of the Mohicans and between my sighing over Daniel Day-Lewis David pointed out places we’d been on our second anniversary trip to North Carolina (where this photo was taken). I’ll be happy to breathe the mountain air again, even if just briefly.
