Reflections and Chocolate Eggs

Do you ever sit back and think about how much your life has changed in a short period of time? I sure have, and I am on this chilly morning in VA with my hot cup of coffee as I was clicking back through some of my old blogs from this time last year. 

Last year, when I was bragging about getting married to the man of my dreams in 97 days. When we were trying to plan an awesome and cheap wedding on our college (and parent's) budgets. When I was trying to balance graduating from college with worrying about finding the perfect vintage cake topper while wondering if I would ever find a job and heck, where we would even live when we got home from our honeymoon. We certainly had options--would it be Annapolis? Virginia? Or our good 'ole hometown in PA? 

As I sit here in our quiet apartment as Ian sleeps (because the lucky bugger is on spring break) I'm pausing to count my blessings, as Ian always tells me to do when I've had a rough week. You know those weeks when it just seems like you don't know what your purpose is? When you feel tired, mopey, and completely uninspired? Like PMS, but not? 

Maybe instead of thinking about things in my life that I'm not so content with at this point in time, I should think about the fact that I have a salary. I work at a job with people I enjoy, I come home to my best friend every night (and sometimes to Greek food!), and I live in one of the most fun places ever. 

So despite the chilly morning, I'm going to suck it up, put my hair up, and enjoy life. And probably eat a Cadbury egg....


  1. It's always a nice reminder to keep our blessings in mind when we're feeling less-than-great. Hope you guys have a lovely Easter weekend!

  2. Lady, I can relate. I sometimes sit there and mope about how I am not where I want to be, but then I snap myself out of it - I got cheap rent, cool job, asheville's small but not the worst place to live by any means, My relationship of 9 years is at it's best it's ever been, what more do I want? Yea there's tons crappy stuff going on, but we just need to take a deep breath... maybe scream a little and just keep on truckin'. AND it's FRIDAY, whhhaaattt?!

  3. I was feeling unsatisfied last night, too. I think I've mostly snapped out of it, but I know that can be tough, so yes, let's both enjoy a little chocolate.

  4. It's all in our heads, isn't it? We always feel like we are supposed to being doing something great or we feel like we are not doing anything great...I love your honesty. You really do have it all going on girl. Just be, relax and have a great weekend. dawn suitcase vignettes xo

  5. I love the image of you sipping coffee on a chilly VA morning. I don't know if you were outside. But sometimes just sitting and enjoying the senses of taste and sound and breezes makes me come back to myself. Love your writing. :)

  6. I know...time flies doesn't it? I totally know that Uggg unmotivated feeling. Those days do suck but you are right...there are so many things to be grateful about and we just have to remember that.

  7. It's so easy to focus on the negative in our lives...way to
    Look at the brigh side of life!!
