john and i spent a long time today talking about what the future holds for us, what we’d like our life to look like after he’s done with school. we daydreamed about moving back to portland, what our house would look like, how many bedrooms it would have, where it would be. we talked about our next vacation, and where we’d like to go after that. we’re finally, after so many months of adjusting here, getting our groove back. not just as individuals, but as a couple. there’s been a lot of stress for us to navigate since the move, both personally and relationally, which i’ve talked so much about here in this space. what’s important now, and what is feeling so, so good, is that we are feeling bright and light again. the backdrop of angst and stress and crankiness has been lifted. our sillyness is back. i couldn’t be happier about it. and today, dreaming aloud again together, was just really beautiful.
i am in the throws of getting stuff together for artfest vendor night. have i mentioned how incredibly excited i’m getting? i’m gonna have cards, all sorts of prints, and of course, originals!
