Adjusting. I haven't worked outside of our home since before the girls were born, so being gone 3 days a week has been a major adjustment for our family. Honestly, there are both positives and negatives to it, but overall I think we are finally starting to get into a groove.
Teaching. We got a late start on home school this year because of our move, but we have finally started back up again. I especially love the beginning of the home school year when all of the books that we've so carefully chosen start showing up on our porch. There is so much excitement! I'm planning another (windy) home school post soon. We learn more and more of what works for us every year.
Creating. As I mentioned above, working for A Beautiful Mess has taken some getting used to, but I am loving it. I don't know if it's like this for everyone, but for me, the more I'm creating the more creative I become. When I get home from the studio after a day of DIY, I'm pumped to make something on my own watch. It's a great feeling. :)
Appreciating. My best friends just moved away and it's been a good reminder for me to just be thankful for the people I have in my life currently. No, it's not like they're gone for good, but there has definitely been a little bit of heartache since they've made their trek to Colorado. (That darn state keeps stealing my friends away!)
Loving. This crisp Fall air. I can't wait to go to the farmer's market this week and stock up on mums. Oh! And plan our trip to the pumpkin patch! Oh! And pick apples at the orchard! Okay, I love October SO much.
Eating. Donuts. Too many. It's my replacement for the ridiculous amount of ice cream I consumed this summer. Have I mentioned that Johnny and Hope are a HORRIBLE influence on me??? ;)
