Does anyone else feel like summer is literally JUST starting?
Honestly, how dare time be so fast. I am offended.
I’ve been so busy lately that I basically want to stay in my room by myself forever…or die. There is no in-between.
But the Lord has been so kind to allow me to find joy in the bustle, instead of getting overwhelmed.
I’ve gotten to grow while watching my siblings get older and do new things. I got to see my LOVELY LOVELY friend, Hannah.
I also had a layover in New Orleans, AKA my dream destination. It was everything I’d ever imagined. From the desolate concrete fields, to the bustle of people in Terminal C. It was great. (hey, you take what you can get.)
I just got back from our church’s summer camp, where I served as one of the leaders. It was an amazing privilege to walk beside the girls, answer their questions, and pray for them.
But I’m so glad to be home. To be in my own bed. To drink my own coffee and plan my own day.
I’ve always been in love with the idea of home. And it’s times like these when home has recently been a place to dump my stuff, repack a suitcase, and attempt a few loads of laundry that makes me appreciate that idea of a comfortable dwelling.
There’s just something about waking up in the morning as sunlight drifts through the curtains, stumbling out of bed and blindly throwing on clothes before retrieving that hot cup of coffee to curl up on the couch with. Baking bread while listening to good music. Plugging in a new air freshener and attempting to dry herbs outside.
I don’t know, I suppose that being away for a while has made me realize how much I love domestic life.
But then again, who doesn’t love decorating the house with succulents? XD
I have some big news!
BECOME A MIDWIFE!
*angels gasp, then start singing*
I’m starting online classes in August, and also *might* have an internship with a local birthing center.
I never thought that yanking tiny humans out of a weird human slip ‘n slide would make me say “yes, that is what I want to do with my life”, yet here we are.
But I’m excited!
That means that I have about two weeks to get ALL the summer things done before the craziness begins.
I made popsicles, which is one thing I can scratch off the old bucket list. Now to tackle the other 15 million things to do.
How’s life for you all? Any summer plans yet to be fulfilled?
