Random Friday

14 Oct

This is the post where my sister moves back home for three months, and all five of us are back together. I never thought this day would come, but by random chance my entire family is living at home again. My brother is here because he’s still in high school, me because the rent is cheap and my sister because she took a temporary position in Ohio to be home for the holidays.

It will be nice to have all of us together, but it will also be very interesting. I foresee some sibling arguments, squabbles with the parents, and a lot of fun having everyone under one roof.

On another note, tomorrow is the big 5K I’ve been not at all somewhat training for. Even though I’m not expecting a great time, it will feel good to be running again. Here are two other things that made me smile this week.

My little brother was crowned homecoming King! We were all really excited for him, and to top it off, his football team won their first game.

The second thing is Sebastian might be coming to visit for Thanksgiving! Nothing is set in stone, but I am beyond excited. And to round out my random thoughts for the night, here’s a little quote that will get me through the race tomorrow. Happy Weekend!


The Bliss List

7 Oct

This week has gone by exceptionally fast and for that I am thankful. The busier I am, the less I think about Sebastian and how far away he is. I counted today, and it’s been 110 days since I last saw him. In reality, I know it’s not that long, but it feels like forever. And to add to it, I keep having the same conversation with everyone over and over again. “No, he’s not moving here anytime soon,” “I don’t know when we’ll see each other next,” “Yes, it’s very difficult.” For the most apart, I think I’m dealing well with the situation, but it always feels like something is missing.

At least the weather has been nice, and I continue to find little things to cheer me up. Here are a few things that made me smile this week:

leaves{changing leaves}

fall day{beautiful fall days}

pumpkins{pumpkins in our field}

Side note: It’s my little brother’s homecoming tonight and he’s on court. Good luck Broseph! Even if you don’t win you’ll always be a king in our hearts.

The Bliss List

5 Aug

Lately it seems like the glass is half empty. I can’t really explain it, but I’m been feeling more negative than usual. In an effort to improve my attitude, I’m going to start “The Bliss List.” Each week, I’ll be on the lookout for things that made me smile and post them in a short list.

This week I actually found quite a few things to be happy about, but I’ll limit the list to three.

flowers[flowers on my windowsill at work]

letter[a letter from Sebastian – always brightens my day]

cupcakes[cupcakes from my office roommate for my birthday]

Yup that’s right, my birthday is tomorrow, and I’m really looking forward to it. As I turn 23, I can’t help but look back on this past year. I traveled to Germany twice, started my career, went on my first official work trip and fell in love with a really great guy. If 22 was this great, I can only imagine what 23 will hold.

Have a great weekend!
