The timeless neighborhoods
are inspiring me with how
I want my home to look.

Being a tourist for a day.
Visiting museums 
and eating at Pike Place Market.
Looking out onto the bay
escaping into enchantment.
Drinking absinthe infused cocktails
until late into the night.

I've been pinning ideas
for when Chris and I have a house
next year.
And I cannot wait to fill it
with warmth and art
and love.

Into the mountains

Two hours into the woods
the air was hot and dry
as we basked
disconnected from everything.

I love camping. That brief, grungy
High into the cascades with
towering foothills that engulfed us.
Long nights and brisk early mornings
where we were woken by the sunrise
coming over the mountains.

A time to just connect with
friends, the outdoors.
Away from everything distracting and stressful.

Trying to find a balance, trying to build a balance.

I've definitely lost touch with the things I love.
It's east though, right?
Where you're too "busy" doing everything else
and not making time for spending time
with yourself.

Is it will power to dedicate time
for the things you love and lost?
Or pure laziness for growing out
of them.

An "attempt" isn't doing.
Failing is okay however. It lets
us know we can always get
better and it gives us room to grow,
to learn a better you.

It's easy to throw all of
my energy
into the things I have to.
A very serious full time job
that I love deeply.
I don't allow myself room
for myself
outside of work
outside of love.

I admit,
I have a lot of room to grow.
To learn.
