It seems as though our weekends lately have consisted of DIY projects and being out of town.
A sign that life is going my way.
We headed down south this past weekend for a wedding. I’ve decided two things… We can pretty much do road trips like its our job and that the change of scenery is what I thrive off of. It refreshes me. It motivates. It inspires me. It leaves me with a sense of calm. And with the high level of anxiety this girl struggles with, I’ll take it. Not to mention weddings just leave you on a romantic high where you are convinced all is good in the world and you are living out a scene of the Notebook.
I’ve been thinking a lot about this season of my life personally speaking. A season where I know that every other weekend I have two days to myself and how normal that seems to me now. I hate being away from Landyn and the anxiety I feel is overbearing at times, but I’ve come to embrace it. Josh and I get every other weekend to spend on just us.. date nights, time with friends, trips, sleeping in, home projects. We can have an “adult” conversation without being interrupted and spontaneous heart to hearts on the bed of his truck.
We talk about the day where there will be no more “breaks”. The day where we decide to have a family of our own. And that right there has me embracing this season. As a mom. As a girlfriend. It has me focused on the present and on purpose with the time we do have together. Sometimes this means putting my phone aside and not over committing myself. It’s listening to the cues and narrowing in on what needs attention. Our equation will always be three and it works for us. Currently we are embracing the right now.
We did a little wine and olive oil tasting in Temecula.
And much like life, antique shops can be a tangible display of seasons. A tangible thing that has stood through the test of time serving some sort of purpose.
We are all in different seasons of our lives. I have a cousin that just started her first round of chemotherapy for a positive breast cancer diagnosis. A dear friend lost her baby last week and is working through that season. Josh’s friends got married this past weekend and are entering into life as newlyweds… another season. It’s so easy to embrace the right now when life is going well. But life is messy and things don’t always go according to planned. But people are cured. Wounds heal. Peace is found. Growth happens and we are better for it. Life happens in seasons.
Have a great week. We’re getting ready for fall around here and are trying to nail down our halloween costume. Someone keeps changing her mind.
