This autumn arrived slowly and lingers still. With plans on the table to move to New England next summer, it feels a little bittersweet to say goodbye to possibly the last autumn I’ll spend in this apartment. Today I started putting out the winter decorations, and the weather has finally cooled down for the remainder of the season, so in a few days all the autumn decor will be taken down and winter will officially have begun for me.
I have to keep reminding myself to enjoy this moment. The quiet before the storm. Right now, it’s calm, I have a lot of down time, and I can really take in everything. Hopefully within the next year, Joel and I will pack everything up and move over a thousand miles across the country to begin a new life. I know in the midst of all of that I’ll look back at this moment and think how I wish I could just have only a couple of things going on instead of a hundred. But the funny thing is that I know by then, the Universe will have made it so I can handle it all. I’ll continue to grow and be able to withstand more.
Winter is my favorite time. I keep fantasizing about walking through forests blanketed with snow and taking ice baths in a lake. And that’s when I have to bring myself back to the present otherwise I’d keep myself up until 4am with excitement!
Talk soon ♥
