Life lately, is pretty dang great. The fall here in the Pacific Northwest is truly amazing. The trees are all golden, especially with the light streaming them. While when you think of the PNW, you think of rain, it’s truly spectacular when it isn’t raining. And, even when it is, it’s cozy, green and lush. I’ve been enjoying all the mild weather, perfect for sweaters and boots.
After months away training, the handsome hunk is home! It is so good to have him home. I can’t even describe how good. He’s a piece to the puzzle and it just isn’t complete around here when he’s gone. I love him, and he loves his career in the Navy, so we make it work. But, life isn’t the same with him gone. Now it’s all back tp perfect!
SeaTac Airport has started a pilot program where they are giving 50 people per day a visitor pass to go to the gate. It’s an incredibly popular program with the 50 passes going within minutes every day. I woke up early, set my alarm to alert me right when the passes would go live, and… technical difficulties! Oh no! I couldn’t get a pass, the site wouldn’t let me choose the right date, and then it said they had sold out for the day. I called the airport, thinking maybe it was a problem with the whole system, wondering if there were still passes left for the day. I was honestly shocked to even get a real person on the other end. I explained my problems with the site, and how the handsome hunk had been gone for months and how much I wanted to surprise him if at all possible. Turns out most other people didn’t have technical difficulties, and they were out of passes for that day. I was bummed to say the least. But, a few hours later, much to my shock, I got a call back from the airport, asking if I would still like a pass! Yes! It was so amazing seeing his surprised face when he stepped off the plane and I was at the gate to meet him. I love SeaTac airport!
I decided to let my hair grow out for my wedding next year! I get bored after a while, and usually go through this cycle where I grow out my hair, then chop off 6-12″. So I’ve made the decision to stop the cycle! I’m letting my hair just grow. I have thick hair, and it’s pretty long already, so I want to keep it lush and give myself as many options as possible for the wedding. I have absolutely no idea what I want to do with my hair. So, if you have a hair look you love, please send it my way!
On Instagram this week, I talked about the season of life I’m in right now, and giving myself some grace. A lot of women said that they were feeling the same way. As women, we are suppose to have it all! Which for me, adds on so much added extra stress and pressure, because the truth is, there isn’t enough time to have it all. We have to make priorities, decide what’s important at this point in our lives, and put our all into those things. And, if there are things that don’t happen, you know what, that is okay! It might seem like a small thing, but I love ironed sheets. They make the bed look so much better, and there is nothing better than sliding into a perfect bed after a long day. But, at this point in my life, there is just no way I have time to iron my freaking sheets! It bothers me that the bed never looks perfect, it’s always lumpy, and isn’t magazine quality. But, I have a busy life and have to make priorities. Right now, the priorities are my relationship, my health, and my career. At this point in my life, anything that doesn’t fall into those three categories, gets pushed to the side. And, I’m starting to accept that, that is okay. So, what are you going to give yourself grace for today?
