WATCHING: the hours tick by until I'm on my way to spend the weekend with my mom. I booked this trip early last month so I would have something to look forward to and it couldn't come at a better time. However, I am sad to leave Sam for three days...
PLANNING: out what our spring & summer might look like. So far there is a weekend at the coast, photographing our first wedding, birthdays to celebrate, a trip to Texas, and a possible hot air balloon ride. And that's just until June!
WORKING ON: making more intentional connections with people, whether in person or through the Internet. Sometimes this looks like a phone call/text/email checking in with someone & planning a time to meet up (if possible). And other times it just looks like a comment left on a blog post that really spoke to me. Either way, my goal is to not be someone who sits back and lurks.
READING: the lastest Emily Giffin book, "Where We Belong". Yes I started it over 6 months ago, but with everything that has been going on, I haven't had a chance to complete it yet. I'm hoping this weekend's flights will help me finish this book.
FEELING: peace with where we're at right now. Of course, I wish life was different, but because I can't do anything to change what happened, I am trying to be content with where we're at. Not only is this our physical location, but, more importantly, emotionally as well.
PINNING: pieces of art that I'd love to own for our home; recipes that both fit our new eating plan & some that don't; and words of wisdom to help me get through the tough times.
INSPIRED BY: lots of bloggers lately! To name a couple from this week... Amy at Chapters, Diana at Hormonal Imbalances, AP at I Love You More Than Carrots and Erin at Blue Eyed Bride. I am so thankful there are women out there who are willing to share their lives with complete strangers, like me.
REMEMBERING: what we were doing two months ago today... saying goodbye to our little girl. Hands down, the worst day of my life and one I will never forget. While I spoke about feeling peace above, I have to be honest in saying that I still feel angry sometimes too. Even though I know she's in a better place now, I'd be lying if I said I didn't wish she was still in our arms. Thank you to those who also remembered today!
