Hello friends and hello July! I’m still processing last month, but a month that arrives on Friday (my favorite day of the week) is only going to get a wholehearted welcome through my favorite lens:
Thinking about … my people, our stuff, and place. I’ve spent much of the past four days helping Katie re-settle her people and stuff and into a new place. It’s so much work. physical. emotional. mental! My dad’s job moved us a lot (five moves when I was a kid plus three more) and my mom has moved four times since she was my age! Since I graduated college, I’ve moved twice. Marc and I know we have one more move to a house we can navigate without stairs … and it needs to happen soon!
Grateful for … finding new rhythms with Katie and her family being so close. I’m not at all sure what this closeness looks like long term, but having her call at 4pm and being able to be there at 5, with dinner!, feels like something special.
Inspired by … Katie’s books … to tackle my own.
and Katie says she’ll help. My goal is to get books into shelves. TBD what happens to the yarn that’s also taking up shelf space. and how I organize … if you have feelings, please share!
Fun … I’ve resisted Looking Forward for so long … and y’all – I bought a plane ticket!! August 1st I’m flying to Albuquerque to spend a few days with my dear friend Lauren in Santa Fe. It’s going to be weird to travel. and I haven’t been to Santa Fe. If you’ve been there and have suggestions for bookstores, yarn shops, or churches (my three favorite touristy things to do!) I should see, please leave your recommendations in a comment.
and that’s it … happy July!
