July Mood


It's here, it's here! It's finally July and I'm so excited to get off of this little rock and back in the real world. While there are a few loose ends to tie up before we head off to California on the sixteenth (a small and sweet baby shower, a few more beach days, ALL THE PACKING), I'm basically mentally checked out and beyond ready. All my time now is spent making lists, downloading playlists and podcasts, and glancing over at our suitcases longingly. While I'm dreading being separated from Ainsworth for such a long time, civilization is calling and I'm itching to see something different from these three square miles of island.

A few fun things have happened lately: we found out the gender of our baby (woo!), I made the Dean's List (proving to myself that all of the time I spend glued to my laptop is actually worth something), and I've begun feeling pulled to distance myself from the online world more than ever. As we prepare to become a family of four, things seem to be coming into focus more clearly than they ever have. At the same time, I'm also inspired and working toward big goals that I will no doubt share with you soon.

July seems full of change but in a good way. I'm excited for new horizons, new routines, and the chance to visit so many loved ones. See you soon California!
