Hi everyone! Long time, no talk. Just popping in on here to provide a quick life update and hopefully give myself some accountability to get back to posting on here.
Since the last time I posted (2 months ago), a good bit has happened! I’ve begun wedding planning, we started a new year, Cameron and I moved in together – lots and lots of changes!
I’m weird because I have a love/hate relationship with change. On one hand, I love it because I love growing and adapting but on the other hand I despise it because I want to instantly get back into the groove. And friends, it just doesn’t happen that way!
Moving, even if it isn’t a far distance, is a lot of work! Not just the packing and unpacking and carrying loads of boxes. But the actual act of sharing a space with a person (and a crazy cat). And trying to go with the flow when you have not one but TWO washer/dryer sets fail you and you are forced to purchase a brand new set. And facing your unhealthy anxiety of raw meat and trying to get your fiance to teach you how to cook (I’m trying!). And trying to loosen up and be less of a Type A clean freak.
What I’m trying to say is that when you’re faced with a lot of change, no matter how significant, it is easy to feel unsettled. And while that has brought me a good bit of stress, I’m trying to teach myself that not everything needs to be settled and perfect instantly. Not every picture has to be hung. We don’t have to have every kitchen utensil (heck, I don’t even cook). Everything doesn’t have to have be so put together.
Being unsettled is beautiful. It is messy. It is exciting. You are plucked from the comforts of your routines and given the opportunity to change and grow from it!
This post is for any of you who are unsettled by the idea of being unsettled, and this post is for me. I’m working on enjoying this process of settling in and creating new routines, new “normals” and new traditions. Don’t get me wrong, we’ve had an absolute blast so far! From our weekly grocery shopping dates on Sundays to our nightly Netflix indulging in The Office, coming home to one another has been absolutely wonderful.
I’m really loving this home we’re creating together.
Happy Saturday, friends! Get out of your comfort zone this weekend and do something that unsettles you a bit. Shake it up!
See you soon!
P.S. I’ve been brainstorming a new approach to this blog – how I can narrow my focus and make my posts more intentional. If there are any posts you’d like to see, feel free to reach out! Excited to get this space back up and blooming 🙂
