Okay okay… so a blog a day seems like too much for my currently hectic, tiring, life. so how about every few days, once a week? Let’s just commit to writing at some point because it is good for the soul.
So what have I been up to? oh just dying from the heat… really though- it’s been too hot. I’ve been harvesting fruit herbs and veggies from our garden, and although my lovely journey with the ranunculus flowers has come to an end for the season- they have been replaced by little Iceland poppies and the giant Rose of Sharon bush we have in the yard. How can you even handle the colours and absolute magic of nature. I just can’t get enough of it.
Zephyr has learned his own language, it’s a mix of actual words and sounds like “uh-oh” and jibberish that melts this mamas heart. I was holding him the other night as he fell asleep in my arms, and thinking about how fast this time has flown by. He’s almost two already… how on earth can that be possible?!? It’s insane how vast my love for this little human is, and how wonderful it is to be able to watch this sweet being come into his own. Parenthood isn’t for everyone- but holy crow am I glad I am went down this road.
I’ve also been reflecting a lot on things that bothered me so much before…my body issues still take up some space in my mind, but I’m happy to report, that at least that space is significantly less. I think that the great outdoors really has done me good. Also, I didn’t realize how depressed, stressed, and guilt ridden I was before- to be honest I’m not sure how much longer I could have stayed on that road, and even though it still stings… I think closing the store was such a wonderful decision for my family and me.
Anyway, I don’t really have too much to report. But isn’t that wonderful? My life isn’t dramatic and crazy, it’s calm, and filled with nature. I’ll take it- and I’m happy.
on to the next my friends 🌸
