a crazy week...




hello, friday! i have never been more ready for the weekend than this weekend. one paper & one exam later, i am left feeling empty & uninspired. i haven't picked up my camera once this week! i haven't had time to make a blog entry that wasn't written late at night with heavy eyes & nonsense thoughts. and throughout this week, i have realized that the days are becoming so short & my to-do lists too long. it is not that time has suddenly disappeared; it is my unwillingness to say "no" to plans & my inability to sit down & relax.
this weekend, though, we plan to celebrate autumn & all its beauty by evenings spent on the couch- knitting & sipping on hot apple cider. we also plan to get our lives back in order- do some laundry while reading a book, make a meal plan, & buy groceries. i also plan to pick up my good pal & make some photos.
it should be an excellent weekend!

love,
natalie

happy weekend, natalie! it's taken me about 27 years to get to a point where i recognize when it's time to say no to some things. i'm actually really amazingly proud of myself for not committing myself to any activities or meetings during the ten day period we have to move. it's hare, but we can't do everything! hope your weekend is great.

natalie, these photos are gorgeous! i think i need to buy some prints from you and your hubby to hang in my next apartment - that way i can still hang out with you everyday! at some point in all of our lives, we have to learn to say no. i too deal with that issue & it makes me exhausted ALL the time. your weekend plan sounds lovely (and left me craving cider...)!
