I've been adjusting. Life is starting to resemble something that is similar enough on a day to day basis so that I don't feel like I have to recalculate my bearings every night before I go to sleep. Being "new" is mentally tough and I'm glad to be leaving this period of new.
Funny as it may sound, the plants that I mentioned here and here are helping me get into a soft schedule of readjusting. Every day, after the sun tucks down behind the neighbor's trees I go outside and water the needy little suckers and it's a subtle sign that my own body needs to realize it's time to begin to shut down. Am I as active on this blog or Twitter or Instagram as I used to be? No, but I'm okay with that during this time. Btw's- The awesome succulent image came from here and there are great "how to not kill your pretty little succulents" information here.
I realized that I was starting to get the hang of things the other day when I had time (and mental "want to") to start a calligraphy class I've been eyeing for a while. It's super fun and is super relaxing even when you're messing up... which is saying something for someone with perfectionist tendencies. Check out Melissa at her blog- I Still Love You (warning: it's an amazing site!!!) and then pop over to her on-line class I Still Love Calligraphy.
Next up on my "life is starting to settle down" to-do list: start taking pictures of the Mister and I's everyday life (including pictures of us!!) and actually printing them out occasionally. Main inspiration: Elise (whats new?) and her Project Life experiment. Also- Finally enjoy a few of the festivals my new home offers on a monthly basis that I haven't had a chance to attend yet. First Thursday Fayetteville / First Friday Bentonville get ready; I'll be there this week.
Total aside- Speaking of pictures of the Mister and I: We had our engagement shots done this last week by these guys (also known as the "most fun bosses. ever." around here) and I'm super excited to see how they came out. You know I'll share as soon as these photos make their appearance.
Thanks for letting me ramble today.
