Has it only been three years?!

This was the conversation Chris and I had on our anniversary Wednesday night. It’s amazing how some years pass without notice – days, weeks, months follow their seasonal routines – and yet other years have so much LIFE to them.

We have done a lot of living in three years. After our wedding, I turned 30, mastered headstands in 30 days of hot yoga, and – somewhere in between – became pregnant with Max.

We bought a house. And we’re renovating it.

We built stuff.

We started our new garden.

Garden is done, seeds are in!

We started jobs, left jobs. We contemplated career, family, home, and balance. And we made (and lost) a lot of friends in between.

That’s life.

And so now we’re here. And it’s quieter here. Things are settling. We are settling. We’re pacing ourselves. We’re being mindful of our needs. In between the busy-ness of our day-to-day, we’re living in the present. And we like it just as it is.

I posted this today because love is in the air this year. Guys, my sister is getting married today. And we are SO. UNBELIEVABLY. EXCITED! She’s all Etsy-this, DIY-that, and completely adorable. I can’t wait to share pictures. I also can’t wait to officially have Paul as my brother-in-law. Love is awesome.

Happy Saturday!

 

XOXO,
