Jennifer Blake: Lets be real [vol. 1]

Lets be real [vol. 1]

November 12, 2013


I schedule most of my posts, there are only few occasions that I publish a post right after I hit it. The special occasions that I do, you better know something is up. It usually means I have a burning desire to get words out because I am stressed, frustrated, sad, angry, or some other not good emotion, and writing helps.

But today? Well today I didn't have anything scheduled. This week is busy, like so busy I feel like I am sprinting to keep up and eventually everything is going to come crashing down, I am juggling too many plates at the moment. I wish I could share more, but I promise later I will! I wanted to write today, I wanted to put something down, I wanted to just get real and share how I feel and what we are up to.

So lets get real?

+ First off...You guys, its snowing! Like big ol' flakes of beautiful white magic. I really and not a snow fan, but there is something so magical about the first few snows. I just get all giddy inside and I love it. I also love it more when I can spend the majority of my day inside watching it fall magically to the ground from the sky.

+ Also, we may have gone out and bought a small 4ft Christmas tree because we didn't see the sense in putting up a giant tree with are upcoming move right around the corner. The big tree will be at our new place. I know we haven't hit Thanksgiving yet, but Christmas is my jam. A month is just not enough for decorations and music...so we started a little early. I would be lying if I didn't say my current favorite thing is to sit on the couch with the Christmas tree lights turned on and Christmas music playing while I blog or do homework. It just makes my soul happy.

+ I had a really rough week last week, I totally am a believer now that bad things happen in threes. Friday I got hit with three things and I did not handle them with grace whatsoever, definitely something I need to work on.

+ 30 days of letters is fun, I have been terrible the past few days at uploading pictures to Instagram, but I have been getting one letter out each day! I hope they are making people smile.

+ I am currently having a love affair with my camera. It can do so much and I love getting chances to whip it out and practice taking pretty pictures. Definitely making more time for my camera.

+ 2014 is going to be amazing. I am going to make sure of it. I am already planning so much for the blog and for life in general. Excited is an understatement. 2014 brings a lot of change for us, I am excited and a little scared to see it all unfold!

Thats life right now, I'm drinking coffee and watching the snowflakes melt as they hit the ground.

Happy Tuesday, Friend.

  2. I'm in love with Christmas music this year. Adam and I go home to my parents every other year for Christmas and while I love getting to spend it with them I always feel like I'm missing out on spending the holidays in my home with Adam. I tend to break out the decorations and music early those years. I'm grateful that this is one of those years.
