It’s been a stressful couple weeks. Between the 47th trip up and down the stairs hauling furniture in and out, scrubbing wood floors and living out of boxes – moving is a LOT of work, even if it’s only seven blocks – life is momentarily in disarray. And, between finding a new home for my hairspray and housewares, a wicked head cold nearly knocked me out (you know it’s bad when during a normally blissful vinyasa yoga class you’re counting down the seconds until savasana).
Throughout it all, my mantra:
Because when you’re fully present every single day – not pining for the past or fretting about the future – amazing things happen.
And, they are happening… the combining of households has been more wonderful than I could have imagined (and, honestly, if you would have told me one year ago – in the midst of wrapping up graduate school – that I would be living with my love, I would have laughed at you). Who knew that putting together IKEA furniture could actually be fun?!
