you’re so close to freedom.
I am so happy to wrap up this week. Lots accomplished, but the fear of letting a ball drop was looming the whole time. For the first weekend in a while, I will have a bit of space to just be. Which means we can start cleaning the house in preparation for incoming guests. Because that is definitely what I like to do on a rare and elusive non-busy weekend. Why wasn't I born with the cleaning gene?
This has been a happy, overwhelming, full week. Lots to appreciate and reflect on, for sure.
1// About six years ago we bought a nearly new couch set from a friend who was moving. It has served us well, but the leather-like material is literally disintegrating. Mario and I were passing by a local furniture store this morning and stopped on a whim. We found a set we like! We've been looking for months to no avail... I guess it was in the stars. Isn't it true that the right thing usually comes along when you stop trying so hard?
2// A man who stops at a Sperry store just to buy you comfy shoes? Keep. Him. Around. I intend to do just that. My first pair of authentic Sperry boat shoes. Swoon.
3// The tulips and daffodils are blooming like crazy. Apparently spring does exist. I can't get enough.
4// My hair has found its happy place for perhaps the second time in my entire life. I have been trimming it every few months but otherwise leaving it be. I let it air dry, use a natural shampoo and conditioner, wash every other day... and it has thanked me. I can actually wear my second day hair down. Never. Before. It's still fine and thinner than I'd like, but it cooperates and can be put back with a single bobby pin (as above). I have found hair happiness. Who knew?
5// The commencement platform has been assembled. Three weeks from tomorrow I will be walking across that stage as a college graduate. I still can't wrap my mind around it. It is starting to feel so... real.
