around here

haven’t come here in a while to share what we have been up to lately

there have been creeks, swimming holes, pools, neighborhood quarantine hangs but most importantly, mine and Lily’s move into our new west asheville home

the end of a chapter and the beginning of a new one is always bitter sweet and i am just trying to not get overwhelmed and just take everything one day at a time

Lily is being super helpful during this move/transition and although she seems on the upside of things, i know it has to be hard for her

both William and i have reached out to recommended child therapist in order to provide her with a neutral space to share her feelings and thoughts but have had no luck booking one because none of them are taking new patients at this covid time

in the meanwhile all we can do is move forward and keep an eye on her and talk about all that we are feeling/thinking

it feels like the most non-summer summer ever but, one day at a time right?

happy friday and happy weekend friends

around here

i’ve been trying to not think about all the canceled summer travels we had planned for this summer as well as trying to not be too nostalgic about previous summer travels

instead, i’ve been trying to be present in the silver linings of the situation we are all in

this will be our longest asheville summer yet and we are trying to find our way through it

some days are easier

some days are harder…

happy friday friends

i started going on morning walks again and i can honestly say that flowers are my biggest motivation and inspiration to keep doing so

neighborhood hangs

what lunch looks like sometimes

what dinner looks like sometimes

i have re-potted all of my orchids

as well as re-corded and beaded some of my hanging planters
