[I’ve been thinking about blogging these past few days, and I’ve come to some conclusions. I used to think that everything had to be new and unique. I’ve changed my mind. There are blogs I read who do the same things each month. Every month, Elise does a currently blog, where she shares what she’s currently doing. It’s full of verbs and gives a glimpse into her life. I love this, but haven’t wanted to be a copy-cat. I finally decided that it’s okay to be a copy-cat. I love the feature, and I feel like it will be something to look back on over the years. So here’s my first – september 2015 currently.] waiting for Autumn to come for reals.
knowing we will get some hot days that will knock me down before Autumn comes for reals.
admitting that I know that Autumn doesn’t need to be capitalized, but standing my assertion that it deserves it.
eating lots of veggies, meat, and fruit for our first Whole30.
feeling like I have a horrible hangover for days on end.
wondering what on earth I’ve been putting in my body that when I stop eating it, it can make me feel so horrible.
hoping it will all be worth it in the end of the 30 days.
knowing that we will definitely be making long term changes to our diet, just based on the past 8 days of Whole30.
reading The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah.
building myself up to start setting my alarm earlier so I can get up and have a productive, energizing morning routine.
talking myself out of setting my alarm earlier every single night.
marveling at how perfectly the daily devotions in Savor are matching up with what I need to hear.
wishing I have more time in the mornings to really thinking about and work with each devotion (see above).
listening to a most perfect mix of Autumn music that is a Sara Barielles/ Nickel Creek Pandora station.
singing along to Alma’s CDs, even when she’s not in the car.
anticipating the day in a little under a week when both my girls are in school.
running out of ideas to keep all three of us busy and entertained.
feeling tired and ragged and worn out. It’s been a long summer.
loving these days of golden sunlight, fluffy clouds, crisp breezes, and rain showers.
laughing all day at Harriet’s sweet pouts, Alma’s antics, and getting to share it all with Jesse.
hearing all sorts of sad on NPR.
wanting to do something.
