This week I am thankful...
That school’s out for [my 2.5 weeks of] summer!
As of noon this past Tuesday, I have been a free woman. Papers turned in. Exams taken. Apartment cleaned. Can we just take a second and breathe in that reality together? Thanks. :)
My summer classes crank up in two and a half weeks, so imma be over here in the meanwhile reading my current obsession, loving my people, and generally rocking a liberated spirit. xoxo
For deadline-free time with him. For any time with him.
Aaron is wonderful, I will just go ahead and tell you that. I am so thankful for his support these past few weeks--and for these past few days that we have been able to spend together without looming deadlines and examinations.
For three new dresses.
The Gap had three perfect dresses in my size and 40% off last weekend. I am thankful for the way clothes that fit both my body and personality push my shoulders back and my heart high. It feels so nice to slide into pretty clothes that meet my needs!
For the chance to be with my family in their places and spaces.
We have been here since Tuesday and my heart has come to overflowing.
For the opportunity to make supper for the folks who have nourished me my entire life.
For the fun of competition./For Granny and Poppy's super-serious game-faces.
In our family we don't just play Dominos--we go for blood. haha! I am thankful for the chance to be silly with my elders. And cutthroat, because, you know, COMPETITION.
For the fact that God does not need me to be perfect, just present.
