I am most definitely in a season of happy right now. On some days, I think that I'm just lucky...on other days, I feel like this season is hard-won. I have talked often about doing the work (health, wellness, spirituality, relationships, parenting...ALL OF IT). My friend, Leigh, has often reminded me to take a moment to enjoy the results of that work. So Leigh...this post is for you.
We are settling in nicely to apartment living. Our bright windows are serving my core desired feeling of lightness very well. I went to IKEA last weekend with a friend, and picked up a Kallax unit that we're using as a room divider....now to figure out how to style it. I'm shifting my attitude toward things that are simply different than our house-owning life. Example - having to do laundry on the first floor (we're on the fifth) instead of in the apartment could be annoying. Instead, I'm loving that I can bust out 3 loads at the same time. Less overall time for that chore is a definite WIN.
I'm hovering around the 30lbs lost mark, which feels really good. I did have a reprisal of hip pain over the past week - but my acupuncturist is handling that. My super-fabulous hair stylist cut 3-4 inches (I think) off my hair last week, and I'm loving that it looks sassy & spring-y. I'm starting to rotate into a spring capsule wardrobe, and will definitely add a few things...and will delete several things that I simply never wore over the winter.
Dan & I took advantage of glorious weather yesterday and chatted about our day over wine & cheese by the river (which is literally a block from my apartment). I'm so grateful that we can talk about the good & the grey and work through the give & take of what we both need & want in any given moment. Because on balance? Life is simply unbalanced...and that's okay.
Life feels good.
