today…

 

today has been…good. i’ve been tired lately…but i think that’s because i just need to stop and rest some. i’m pretty bad at that. just a few more weeks until a little vacation with the husband…i cant wait!!

here’s some things i’m looking forward to/like right now! enjoy!

1. drinking coffee out of pretty coffee cups
2. catching up with old friends
3. knitting scarves…because i’m too lazy to knit anything else!
4. listening to Sandra McCracken. she’s my favorite…you should probably look her up.
5. running my first 5k!! if i can get training started…

it’s a fun season i’m in right now. a lot of change and growth going on in my life…but it’s beautiful. so beautiful.

october…

it’s october!! my favorite month of the year! i just love october… the leaves, the crisp air, the smell of cinnamon and cloves, the taste of apple cider. it’s just the perfect season. i’m taking this month to work on me. to get back in shape, to rest mentally and emotionally, to figure out me again. it’s going to be great. i’ll keep you all posted on how everything goes…

anyway…we went to an apple orchard on monday!! it was such fun!! and i might have fallen in love with some goats. yes, goats. they are so sweet and cute! and i even got head butted by a kid!

yes, we caved and got a caramel apple. and we might have gotten one for the road that is waiting to be eaten! we are so excited to do so many more fun things for fall…some of which we hope become traditions! what are some of your favorite fall activities?!

in the silence…

so i know i’ve been silent on the blog lately. i’ve been busy trying to find my place here in the great land of wisconsin, and since blogging isn’t my full time job, i guess i dont feel much of a responsibility to keep up with it. 

i will say though that since moving, i’m starting to remember my identity. i’m starting to remember who it is that God has created me to be. i am a musician. i am a creative. i am a wife. i am a daughter. i am a lover of nature. i am me. the reminding has been hard though. and i am sad that for a while i forgot all of these things. for a time, i was trying to be someone who i was never intended to be. i feel kind of like Eustace Scrubb in Voyage of the Dawn Treader. he is a little boy who becomes a dragon for a time, but Aslan comes and pulls off his scales making him a little boy again. it is painful, but in the end it is completely worth all of the hurt. i feel like i am becoming myself…
