Hi friends, I’m back. I finally went to the doctor Monday after Will practically forced his doctor’s number onto my phone and hit send so I’m hoping to be a normal human again being soon! It turns out my immune system is doing strange things and as soon as I told my doctor I was getting married in a couple months, he raised his eyebrows and said, “ah, yes, there it is.” Great.
Needless to say I suppose I’m not entirely surprised that I’m feeling a little creatively blocked lately. Normally I’d be finishing up a new jewelry collection, but I have 0.0 things done for that and think that will probably not be happening anytime soon. I haven’t taken a photo in over a month, and it dawned on me that it’s June – my historically dumpy month. I don’t know what it is about June – that six month marker into the year where I start to feel like the months are flying by too quickly and I haven’t accomplished enough? I’m not really sure, but it’s happened for almost 10 years now and I just deal. I take it easy and try not too be too hard on myself, rearrange my furniture, take long walks, buy new lipstick, eat as healthy as I can. I think this is one of the first times I’ve accepted it as being a necessary part of my year and a good emotion to have. Creativity will come when it’s ready.
Next week we’re going to visit Will’s dad in Columbus, Ohio and while I crumple in humidity, I’m looking forward to a change of scenery and fresh air. I took these photos the first time I visited six years ago, and I’m happy to have a photo task ahead of me again! If you have any Columbus recommendations, lay ’em on me. We always do the same stuff when we’re there and like to relief hosts of planning my outings on trips.
