What I Learned Spring 2020

What I Learned Spring 2020

The last time I wrote one of these updates, the world was a completely different place. Now, I find myself trying to even remember writing those words, feeling those feelings, and realizing the new things I learned then. I just went back to look at what I wrote about all those years ago that was actually only three months ago, and I WROTE ABOUT FACE MASKS, Y’ALL. I. Wrote. About. Masks. BEFORE. It. Was. Cool. and I can’t get over…

What I Learned Winter 2020

What I Learned Winter 2020

This winter hasn’t been very wintery around here. This morning I sat in a coffee shop and watched flurries come down as I sipped my tea, but last week I was going around with just a cardigan on. It has been an odd season and I am more than ready for spring to be here. Winter causes me to be secluded and more antisocial than I already prefer to be, so I am anticipating the softness of springtime and the…

10 Things I’ve Learned This Summer

I believe it is important to reflect on the past and see where we have come from on occasion to see more clearly where we are going. Every three months I plan to list a few of the things I have learned, both serious and maybe seemingly silly things – whatever sticks out the most. Here are some of the things I have learned this summer! 1. I adore companionship. I love being alone, but I don’t love being by…

First Year of Marriage

First Year of Marriage

Today marks Andrew and my one year wedding anniversary. To celebrate, he took me on a surprise trip to Natural Bridge, Virginia where we enjoyed the weekend alone together. I’ll write more about our travels in later posts (with pictures!) but today I’d like to list off a few things I’ve learned in this first year of marriage. First: it went by way too fast. Actually, most time seems to be going too fast nowadays. I’ve been taking time to…
