happy days

I've been feeling a leeeetle bit homesick lately. I think it is especially jarring as I approach 26 (3 weeks!), because, somewhere deep in my brain, I thought this was something I'd grow out of.

But, considering I could not even sleep at my cousin's house growing up (2 a.m. call to Muff&Dave every time), I think the fact that I sleep through the night, every night, eight hours away from my Indiana home, shows great progress. Not total domination, but progress. Dontchathink? (#smallvictories)

It's not necessarily that I want to be back in Indiana right now, but more that I'd like everyone I love to be in the same place. Really, is that so much to ask?

I don't think so, either!

Last night, Melissa and Katie and I took the night off from productivity. We spent the whole night talking and enjoying a slow Wednesday. It made me realize that what I am missing so often, is the chance to connect with people on a deeper level. The chance to slow down and ignore the task lists and grind of the week, and just enjoy people.

It was such a great way to spend my Wednesday night, and I'm so grateful for their company. In fact, it was just what I needed to get me out of my funk.

And now, here we are, Thursday!



  1. at least you made it to 2am... i was out of there the second the street lights came on :)
