Processing

Processing

February 11, 2013

**YAY! Liz F has been randomly selected as the Starbucks card giveaway winner! Email me darling!**

I’ve started to go through my trip pictures. It’s a slow process on this end even though it feels like my time away flew by. It didn’t feel like two weeks then, but it feels like more than two weeks now. It seems I only missed the good parts about home and forgot all about the things that drive me batty ;-) So, I’m processing. What I learned, where I want to grow, what I want 2013 to look like, how to do the best I can to make those things happen personally and professionally. And I’m doing these things alone (which is hard). It was hard to see so much without Wil and try to explain it to him. I loved traveling with my mom, but I honestly have no idea how she and my dad do this every month. I want to talk more about marriage on the blog, I think it’s really important. But I’m going to have a hard time making that look as pretty as I try to with everything else. So as you can see from this ridiculous stream of conscious…my brain is still kind of in a fog. I don’t want things to go back exactly to normal, I want to have grown and I need to challenge myself beyond the usual. I want to live more in real life and less online. I want to be a better listener. I want to react slower (after thinking about things…and not let my face tell EVERYONE exactly how I feel right away). I have lots of things to work on.

This week though I promise I’m getting more organized! We have a beautiful couple’s engagement pictures coming up, my goals for the year (yes I realize we’re basically halfway through February), and Wil’s & my Valentine’s tradition :-D

Do you feel weird when you get back from trips? I need to find a way to better articulate what I want to share :-P Please tell me if you’ve found such a way!
