Well, hello there.
It's been quite awhile since I've written. A lot has been going on in my little life, and at the same time, nothing at all. Ben and I are narrowing in more and more on jobs in Japan and most of the time it's really exciting, but it's also incredibly stressful. I'm obviously incredibly excited to go abroad, but leaving my family and everything I've ever understood to be "normal" is really huge for me. Besides living in New Hampshire this summer, I have never really lived outside the midwest. While I know this is an amazing opportunity and will fill my life with so much experience, it will be hard to be away from home indefinitely.
But I am trying to spend as much time as I can appreciating the small things about my friends and family here. I went to a concert with Ben and my brother, Bobby had we all had the most amazing time. I'm so grateful my brother and I are even more like grown-up friends. We've always gotten along, but I think as we've gotten older, our relationship has become so much more meaningful. We have a really special bond.
My mother and I also had a really nice day shopping for a suit for me to interview in. It was nice to sit and talk with her. I very much needed her reassuring words. I also now have a very classy looking Calvin Klein suit courtesy of her and my dad!
Well, I guess these are just the thoughts in my head right now. I had some pictures on my camera from a breakfast the other day I thought I should share.
|We've been watching all the presidential debates. Very exciting.|
|Mimosas in mason jars!|
|My latest obsession.|
|The painting Ben's mom bought us in Hawaii.|
|Ben getting ready for his resume picture. We had a fun photo shoot :)|
And this is just a picture I love.
I hope your drifting times of the fall are warm, cozy, and filled with love.
