After a long drive up the east coast yesterday, I’m officially back in Maryland (and a little sleep deprived because we arrived home after 1 AM last night). Now I’m working to get my life in order, figure out the final guest count for our wedding, unpack wedding shower gifts, fight ants that somehow came in the roots of my Trader Joe’s orchid that has been sitting here unsupervised for over 2 weeks, combat fraudulent charges on a credit card…and I still haven’t even checked anything off my actual Monday “to do” list.
It feels great to be home, although it really was nice to get away for a bit. Life is just one big whirlwind right now, and finding the calm in the eye of the storm is often more difficult than anticipated.
I have about 18 draft blog posts written at the moment, but I’ve recently realized (especially after painting a bedroom, a kitchen and working on lots of little projects at my family’s beach cottage) that I have a rather short attention span and am easily distracted because I want to do so many different things all at the same time. I’ll wrap up all these posts eventually, and will hopefully have some great content to share with you all soon, but today is a recovery day (plus I need to go buy groceries because for some reason eating expired food is frowned upon…who knew!).
I hope you all have a lovely and productive Monday! Thanks for hanging with me!

It is all good stuff….take time to enjoy, take it all in….one step at a time, one list at a time and soon you will be the happy, healthy Mrs!!
You are experiencing so many changes all at once. They are all good, but that can still be stressful. Take time to stop and take it all in. I haven't been reading your blog for long, but I did start at the beginning and I have been enjoying following along. I love your style and how you decorated your apartment. I'm looking forward to seeing how you decorate the new apartment for you and your hubby, your wedding, the beach house and your career change. Thanks for doing what you do!
Still better than an Army Monday! 😀 I hope the rest of your week is so much better!
