Dear God, it’s been a minute, hasn’t it? There’s not even a reason for me to ramble off an apology at this point, right? This is basically what we’ve all come to expect from this little blog. I pop in about once a month, say hi, fill y’all in on a few details of life, then disappear again for another month. Why mess with perfection is what I say.
Ha. I just referred to this blog as perfection. I’ve got so many jokes.
So, how are you guys? I feel like I”m always so focused on myself I never even stop my ranting to ask how you are. That’s rude. I’m rude. Don’t feel like I don’t care about you just because I disappear for a month at a time. It’s not you. It’s me. But just know that I really DO care.
So, it’s basically been the same old shit for me around here. My momma came to visit. It was fabulous. I did not take one photo the entire weekend. I SUCK at taking photos and making memories. It’s something I keep telling myself I’m going to work on. I do not. One day friends. One day.
Last weekend I had ZERO plans and promptly decided that meant I would plant myself on my couch for two straight days and not move. It. Was. Glorious. I did manage to get myself up and moving on Sunday because I felt like I just NEEDED to be outside. Went for a two-hour hike across the Old Chain of Rocks Bridge and along the Riverview Trail. I have such a fierce need to be on a beach that the Mississippi was as close as I could get, so I took it. I truly believe I was meant to live on the coast. And I may or may not be spending too much time on the daily looking for jobs in coastal beach towns. I probably won’t really GO there, but it’s good to know your options.
Work has been INSANE for the past two-ish weeks. It should slow down a scoche this week then it’s most likely going to turn into a hot mess express again. I kind of love it when it’s crazy, I won’t lie to you. Keeps me on my toes and the days fly on by. It helps that I still truly enjoy what I’m doing, which is just completely out of character for me. I’m appreciative of that fact.
Officially planned my vacay to NC for the beginning of August last week. The ocean will be involved. I could not be more excited.
Wedding season has truly begun around these parts. It helps that it kicked off with one of my favorite couples, and my Addy came home from Arizona to be my date. I have kind of the best friends in the whole world and I like it when weekends remind me of that like this one did.
I’m trying to work on being a better person. Just overall, I’m kind of too much of a bitch. I openly own that fact. I’ll be the first person to admit to you it’s 100% a self-defense mechanism. There were some things said this weekend that I attempted to brush off at the time, but if I’m being completely honest they truly got to me and made me start evaluating some shit. The snarky and sarcastic comments will never completely go away, I’m not delusional. I know this. It’s who I am. But I can be a kinder, more forgiving person. It’s something that I need to work on and I feel like it’s something that’s worth me putting in the effort. I also plan to put in the effort to swing by here more often and make this blog into what I originally intended for it to be. And to fully appreciate all the good in my life. And to take more pictures and make more memories. And to not be so cold, and make sure the people I care about know how much they mean to me. There’s a lot of work that needs to be done in this little world of mine, and I plan to start doing it.
