Michael is out of town, so I spent the weekend in Northern, VA to have some time with some of my very best friends. I LOVE going up to NOVA and it has been awhile since our crazy schedules have allowed it. I was so happy to go up and see these friends. Two of these gals have just bought a new place and it was so much fun going and visiting both of these houses and seeing all they are doing to make it a sweet, sweet home. But you guys. I suffer at the hand of the green monster. I can become so, so envious. And this weekend walking around these new homes, and returning to our little condo, the jealousy just kept creepin’ in. Michael and I desperately want to move on, but are trying to be as responsible as possible with our next steps. So seeing these friends, with their new adorable homes, made me want to throw all caution to the wind, give up on any responsibilities, and leave our current house right away. Ugh.
But what I need to remember, is that I love where we are in our lives. And I don’t want to skip over this. I am so happy for my sweet friends and their new homes..and while I feel like we are ready to be buying our next home, I know we aren’t. It’s just hard to remember that sometimes. So I thought I would make myself a little list of a few things that I know I should be savoring while we still have it. Things I know we are going to miss when we are finally ready to move on. Things that bring us JOY right now. And things I need to remember not to look over.
So much to be thankful for..
I hope y’all find some joy in your lives today. xo
P.S. If you are every in Haymarket, head over to Burnside Farm. It was the cutest. But not cuter than Caitlin..
