Seasons.

As the days get warmer, I can feel my mood lift with the warmth of my skin. I think everyone goes through a bit of wintertime numbness and apathy. Life is a whole lot better when there's daylight to see it happen. I find I'm happier when I awake to daylight, like the universe wakes me gently instead of some abrupt darkness shoving me into the day ahead. For some reason, I'm about 100x more comfortable in my bed just as I awake during the spring than any other seasons. I've never been one to toss and turn but springtime offers a slumber far more peaceful than winter.  

I think I have arrived at a significant turn in my life. Where childhood and teenage years feel so far away, yet you don't know how you're suddenly 24 and a half. When you find elegant kitchen dishtowels and artwork more aesthetically pleasing than music videos and social media. I know I have only dipped my toes in adulthood but I feel really really content. I mean I just bought the most precious Audrey Hepburn children's book for my future daughter one day. If that's not a sign of womanhood then I don't know. I've read it a few times. I'm really in love with it.

It's so accurate when they say time only gets shorter with the way these months are flying by; you blink and you're suddenly an adult. Time is weird like that. I can't wrap my head around it. Other than getting bouts of nostalgia, I think I'm handling this young woman thing with as much grace as I can.

  1. I feel ya on getting into house decor :) I can't wait to have my own home, but at the same time, growing up is scary. And I think it's sweet that you're buying things for your future daughter. That's fun!

  2. the transition to adulthood is gradual, and the time goes by so much faster the older you get.
