The past few weeks have been… interesting. A combination of pits and peaks (stolen Kardashian lingo), have kind of made me an emotional basketcase. In case you are wondering, I am not a pretty crier (whether it’s because I am happy or sad) like a lot of the girls on the Bachelor and Kristen Bell. But this morning I was just thinking about things and could not feel more grateful for the incredible people I have the pleasure of calling family and friends. Hearing a girlfriend’s voice all the way from Chicago, talking to my dad about taxes and life, connecting with my mom on a level I can’t with most people, gchatting with friends that say “omg I literally just gasped and clapped,” getting an unexpected gift and unbelievably sweet and sincere card from a friend just thinking of me, daily doses of advice from my younger (and wiser) brother, making plans with friends and smiling just thinking about seeing them, words of encouragement in daily conversations, emails with “woohoo!”, marking my calendar for visits from friends, and of course always having Sally Ann as my rock of a roommate. Sorry to get mushy – these past couple days (and weeks) have been overwhelming with good and bad and it just feels like a sigh of relief to remember that what I have is enough and will always be enough.
And of course, I don’t know where I would be without this blog as a way to capture my creative spirit and you amazing people who read it.
