I have some energy after a really good doctor’s appointment today and realized I didn’t want to miss an Editor’s Note post! I love these catch ups so much, they have always brought such happiness and inspiration while putting them together. Lots of goodness happening as summer approaches, so wanted to pop in!
Well, not a whole lot here other than:
Get our baby here safely, whenever and however she decides to make her way.
Soak up every second of newborn bubble.
I’m excited to introduce you to our new family member soon!
Life just feels extra vibrant lately. For many reasons. But one thing that has been so lovely is to experience and witness so many reunions. A month or so ago, I saw a friend at a ladies night out and I remember feeling taken back by it… but then as more reunions unfolded day by day, it amazed me how quickly get-togethers just seemed normal again. It’s so refreshing and nice! After a very long, tiring, tough year on so many, I am giddy to see people around me so happy and enjoying life again with fresh eyes and a whole new appreciation for simply living. We got to BBQ with a bunch of our good friends on Memorial Day as well, it was so fun. I really missed this part of life, spending time and making memories with our nearest and dearest—it’s everything!
I think this summer is going to be one that feel extra special… and I must say I have been giggling at the #shotgirlsummer and #vaxgirlsummer notes… so good.
I’ve loved this quote for many, many years (I save them in my phone notepad) and it feels more relevant than ever before so wanted to share it:
“I like to see people reunited, I like to see people run to each other, I like the kissing and the crying, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can’t tell fast enough, the ears that aren’t big enough, the eyes that can’t take in all of the change, I like the hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing someone.”
—Jonathan Safran Foer
I’m also a little emotional lately as we are so close to meeting our baby. I feel like I’ve been pregnant forever now, too, people are not kidding when they say the last weeks are tough. It’s a wild season for sure as you patiently wait for a sign that it’s go time!
On our way to our friend’s in Oakland we were crossing the tunnel and we realized that the next time we drive through will be when we head to the hospital. I started to weep and my first thought was how wonderful that moment will be and just how excited I am to meet her. It gave me strength knowing that’s where my mindset went instead of any type of fear (have been afraid of child birth by whole life!). I just feel so readyyyyyyy. K, that is all—happy June to you! x
