Would you believe that I never flew in a plane until I was 22 years old? I mean, I guess if you grew up poor like me then it's totally relatable— flying is a pretty huge luxury/privilege. You just jet set off and in a few hours you're squeezing your best friend tight! I recently flew for the second time in my life to DC (and boy were my arms tired! ughghgh, you can unfollow me for that one) for no reason other than I had a week off work and an extreme case of the I-MISS-YOUS (cause that's totally a real thing).
Flying is always a surreal experience for me. I don't get nervous or scared or worried, I just act like a six year old who's lived under a rock their entire life. It kind of just feels fake to me— like it's a movie set or a theme park ride. Nick has flown a lot (and hates it) so obviously he offered me the window seat (which I was too giddy about) and laughed at me for being so excited about the sunset flight we got to experience. Seriously though— a sunset from above on the way to visit my favorite person on the planet?! SIGN ME UP.
This cotton candy wonderland was just way too dreamy! We even watched Bob's Burgers in flight on Nick's tablet so that was kind of the cherry on top. Oh, except for when we landed and Shannon just handed us slices of the best vegan pizza I've had to date. We had a great time frolicking about for days and visiting all the monuments, museums, and restaurants that DC has to offer. I have lots of great pictures I can't wait to share with you! So much food and inspiration in that city. I mean, don't get me wrong— I am a country gal through and through. But it was nice to have so much culture readily available.
Since I've been back it seems like there is never enough time in the day! Between work, computer issues, friends visiting, blogger meet ups, and generally just trying to feed myself on a daily basis I got a little ~overwhelmed with life, you could say. I was brimming with ideas for this here blog of mine but I took some time off from both blog reading and writing to kind of collect my thoughts. I have so many ideas going around and I really wanted to step back and make sure I know where I want to go with this site. I also wanted to insure that the things I write + share here aren't being affected by the things everyone else is doing with their blogs.
So I've pretty much literally just had my head in the clouds for the last month. I've been dreaming, talking to friends, thinking about what I want out of life, what makes me happiest, and formulating a plan to get there. Part of what started it all was the recent custom book that a friend commissioned me to make. Creating the exact item that someone wanted (+being paid for it) has made me a little stir crazy with the desire to really start my own business. And that's when I kind of dropped off the face of planet while trying to figure what moves I should make next.
But I think I know now. And I can't wait to share it all with you so I hope you'll stay tuned!
