I haven’t abandoned this project, I swear. I do feel like I’ve gotten away from it a little bit, and getting back into the habit of writing and documenting has been harder than I expected. I feel like self-care has become much more embedded in my daily life and routines, that now it is such second nature for me I’m not even thinking about it as self-care. Rather as just those things I do for myself on the daily. I like that feeling. I also like being more intentional about what I’m doing, and so I’m trying to find a good balance.
In exciting news: Wyatt and I got the most adorable house!! We’re moving May 15th. I can’t wait to start fresh, to make a home together, to have places to walk to for a change, and to have a more intentional and purposeful home life.
I’m away for the weekend working at camp teaching three fiber arts classes. I had the most amazing day of teaching, creating, and being inspired. The youth we work with consistently blow me away. Being here is my self-care for the weekend. Camp is one of my absolute favorite places on earth. There are few other places where I feel as grounded. I’m so sad I won’t be here this summer, but I’m making bigger self-care decisions by being in grad school, so it’s a trade off. But being here now is really good and revitalizing for me. Looking forward to a full day of teaching tomorrow and then heading home to get ready for the week to come.
