slow life

fall has come, and it feels like life is finally slowing down. 

we are happy in our sweaters, drinking coffee slowly. we woke at 5 am on friday to snowfall in the city. bags of clutter are making their way out of our home, and boxes of coats are coming down from the top shelves. we are finishing books we started ages ago. it's cool inside and we're dancing more spontaneously. we're sending letters that are overdue. and for the very first time since i was seventeen, i have time to invest in projects that will bless our family in the long-haul. and i know our best moments are ahead of us still. and i'm so grateful for that.

  6. hm, yes! tis the season of slowing down. at first, spending every evening wrapped in a blanket and heading to bed early for extra reading-time made me feel guilty and unproductive, but I've since embraced it, and it's awesome. hooray, hooray!
