a good limbo

i don't know if it's spring -- the eternally transitional season -- but i've been really, really focused on the future lately. i feel like so much of our lives right now -- living in denver, robbie finishing school -- is in kind of a limbo land. it's an in-between part of our lives that i'm so grateful for -- the chance to adventure together, to explore a new place, and to be able to make a living off photography -- something i never imagined would happen to me. 

still, i feel like i'm waiting for so much of our life to start. not waiting in an impatient or unsatisfied sense, but in an on-my-toes, giddy kind of way. i love my life so much right now, that i go crazy (in the best way) thinking of the good stuff that's still ahead. i'll be the first to admit that sometimes i let that kind of thinking (the daydreaming about our future home and kids) sort of consume me. but in the warmest, happiest, enveloping kinda way. so i'm gonna call it a good thing -- a good limbo.

  1. You're always so optimistic, and cheerful. Uncertainty makes me crazy! I'm so glad you're enjoying your limbo land, and you should absolutely soak in all your time with Robbie. You look beautiful by the way.

  4. holy sexy lady! That dress is hot. and Jordan and I are still in limbo too. But we are on the far end of limbo and that is a wonderful feeling. I've been thinking a lot lately about how things seem like they will last forever when you're in them, but then when they're over you look back and say...That wasn't that bad or you say, look it's over. Nothing lasts forever. I've been holding onto that lately. Cherish any time you have doing anything, whether pleasant or unpleasant. Cause it won't last long. I'm pretty sure you are a cherish the moment kind of person. :) I look up to your positivity.

  5. Preaching to the choir, sista! I absolutely feel as though we're in limbo too! It so hard sometimes, but other times, it's so exciting to just be completely untied! I just love you so!

  7. I read once that imagining the future is a type of nostalgia. That it becomes just a way to escape the present. But I think it's a teeter totter of living in and enjoying the present, but holding on to that dream of the future, of the babies and front porch.
