Warm Fall Feelings
September already? There is something so refreshing with the changing of the seasons. We had an awesome bonfire last weekend. There were no mosquitos and all the kiddos played so well together in our yard, having so much fun in the hammock and playing with our electric lantern. Our patio lights made for a glowy and cozy feeling and I just felt so thankful for our family, the little piece of land in the town that I am growing so fond of, and my cuddly new-ish baby on my lap. I don't know if we will live here forever, but if we did I would be ok with that. Nobody knows the future, so I'm letting my roots grow. I want to be HERE while I am here, the only home my daughters have ever known. I am very attached to my little home, and it becomes more "us" all the time. I have been painting the exterior windows white, little by little. It feels so empowering to take on a task like that, one that I assumed I wouldn't have time for. But you find time. There are seasons in life too, where I'll feel able to do the bigger things. And seasons where I can barely get three meals together. But as long as we are moving forward, right? In the grand stretch of life ahead, I really am a brand new homemaker, mother, and wife. Things come together, not all at once, but in months and seasons, inspirations and industry. My prayer today is that I not take any of it for granted and that I have many many more seasons to become who God most wants and most planned for me to be. I just want to be the most loving, not the most perfect.
