Happy Friday, Y’all!

28 Oct

Oh my goodness, it’s been forever since I posted- sorry about that! I realized this morning that I hadn’t had a ‘normal life’ post in ages, mainly because we were on the go in some neat places for a good long while there! But now we’re back, our company is all gone, real life has resumed…And I’ll be honest, it’s been quite the adjustment these last few weeks, for all of us. But we’re hanging in there and settling back into our routine. We’ve celebrated John’s birthday (once with company and once on the actual day), we’ve met up with friends, we’ve carved pumpkins, we’ve walked to school on dreary mornings…Just wanted to share some of our normal with you before we get into this fun-filled Halloween weekend ❤

Three inches in the one year since we moved here! Time, slow down!

When your daughter says that you have to be royalty to carve a pumpkin, you comply. #realman

Fall has arrived here in Stuttgart, the colors are getting more brilliant by the day, the days are getting shorter- and chillier…Yesterday, I stumbled upon an article talking about this beautiful season and it really struck a chord with me, especially given the challenges I’ve been feeling these last few weeks. Alas, the Universe providing  in perfect timing as it always does. And I want to leave a snippet here with you as a reminder of the beauty of change, of growth, of rebirth…That it happens whether we want it to or not and that while it can certainly be challenging- or downright painful- in the process, it so often gives way to something so much more…if you let it. Happy Fall ❤

Fall is a spiritual season. Part of the tree dies in order to regenerate a healthier version of itself for later in its life. We are but observers of divine healing. As Gatsby put it, ‘life starts all over again when the air gets crisp in the fall.’ There is something incredibly hopeful about fresh starts.
