just hanging out
Hi everyone! Didn't mean to take off for a week, but things have just been busy here (isn't that always the story?). Our summer is off to a fine start, even though it hasn't felt very summery lately! Jared is off from school for a few months, and even though we're both working still, it feels like a vacation to have evenings and weekends together instead of at the library! My garden is doing wonderfully (I suppose that is the one benefit of the constant rain) and I can't seem to stop myself from buying more and more plants...We've finally set a date for our housewarming party, so we've been busy finishing up loads of little projects around the house, it's amazing how many boxes can be emptied once you buy a big bookshelf!
I don't know about you all, but sometimes my biggest problem when it seems like there's so much to do (or that I want to do), is that I can't seem to make myself just slow down. A few weekends ago, Jared and I took a day to just hang out. I had a new-to-me camera to play with, and we took the day to go to some places around town that we'd never been to. We hit up a fancy coffee shop, a farmers market, and then took a little drive. At the farmers market I saw a gigantic lavender plant and stuck my face in it to just take in the beautiful scent. When I looked up, the farmer told me that the look on my face was the look that everyone should have when smelling lavender...dreamy.
It was so nice to just have a day to spend together, just being.
