It’s been such a long time since I’ve felt content enough to blog.
Contentment is strange. A sense of happiness and satisfaction? We do so more now than ever try to find the joy in the daily things that God blesses us with, but it has been a huge struggle for me personally to really settle in. I’ve been living “until the next session is finished” or “until I feel better” or “until my next appointment.”
I usually love blogging and writing to journal our events/journeys, but lately (and by lately, I guess I mean the last 6+ months) it just hasn’t felt right.
Almost from the beginning of this pregnancy, I’ve been in a funk. With the months and months of morning sickness came exhaustion, mental fatigue, and just an overall haze. Kind of like a thin veil of fog just hanging over each day.
Sickness after sickness in our home left us secluded from friends and family. Along with the sickness, we have been in a major MAJOR transitional point in our lives. After 16+ years with the same company, Chase has accepted a position with a new company (talk about crazy) during this last month of pregnancy. Don’t forget we kinda moved three times in the last year, built a house, a camper, and sold everything we owned…. I’d say this year has been one of growth, learning, and acceptance.
But today. Today felt bright. Today felt good.
Don’t get me wrong, we have had MANY great days in between some of the crazy, but I just haven’t felt like writing about it. Now that I’m finally caught up with work and photo sessions, I felt like I could spend time on us, our home, and sharing a little bit of what we have been up to the last 9 months.
This sweet room has been such a place of happiness. I’ve so enjoyed putting lovely little things in here that bring us joy! From the sweet Gingiber fox, blue owl pillow and sheep, to the thoughtful gifts from friends… Love it so much!!
and then these happy shelves that Chase built… I LOVE THEM way much. I still have some fun ideas for the coffee bar and the living room, but after selling most of our things last year, I’ve found serious joy in less. The things we have out are so meaningful to us.
So there you have it! Happy Tuesday, y’all. Thanks for catching up.
Maybe with the next blog, there will be a baby girl!
