Happy Friday and Happy Weekend! Taking a cue from Nina, I thought I'd update you on what's been going on in my life so far. So here goes. Lately, my life has been...

  • AWAKENING: Realizing that you are a real-life adult can be really terrifying. But having the right partner in crime makes that realization less scary and much more fun. {Plus, you can still be kids together!}
  • EVOLVING: I feel like I'm in the planning stages of...everything. It feels like I am in need of a career change and despite time, I am still trying to figure out what that change is. Hopefully soon it will make sense.
  • HEALTHFUL: I try to make cooking at home and riding bikes regularly de regueur in our household and I feel like the past few weeks have been proven successful. Let's hope that this lasts! I feel like I'm doing my body a favor.
  • COMFORTING: On the days when I am extra hard on myself (more often than not these days), I am comforted to know that I am not alone in how I'm feeling. Everyone goes through their own things. Everyone has days when they're blue. And everyone eventually figures it out. That is comforting.
  • LOVING: Every day, I am grateful for the people that are in my life whether it's the nicest, most accommodating Trinidadian waiter at the French café or the elderly man at the corner of my street who waves every time he sees me on my bicycle. But I'm most grateful for my friends (both new and old, in real-life and in the blog-world), my family, and most especially my husband. In turn, I feel like I've got so much more love to give. And want to give. It's really quite surreal to know that I've never, in my life, cared for anyone as much as I do for Ryan. It's seriously the best feeling in the world.
{Thanks, Nina, for inspiring me to do a mini-life inventory. It has put things into perspective!}

Have a wonderful wonderful weekend, everyone!

  1. I also love this idea! I saw that Nina put that up a few days ago, too. Good idea to follow suit. We all seem to be going through similar transitional times, and you're right, it's so comforting to know that there are others along on similar journeys. Your blog is so sweet! I'll be stopping by regularly.

    Take care!
