10 things | a whole lot of l o v e

Hi hello, happy Sunday ( almost Monday! ).

I cannnnnot believe that summer is over, done, finished for this year. O v e r. What the heck?

Well technically tomorrow is the end of summer… then I have a full-day orientation on Tuesday and classes start on Wednesday, so I’m a little overwhelmed.

These last two weeks at home, not working & just chillin’ out have been SO needed and I’ve seriously loved every minute. I’ve gotten to relax and recover from summer camp and prep for school. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve had this much time to rest since I started university ( no joke ).

So, let’s get to 10 things from this moment in time, shall we…

01 | Today would be my grandma’s 86th birthday & I miss her every single day, but I’m so happy to know that she is no longer suffering. It doesn’t get any easier as the years pass… but I am able to appreciate the passing more, because unselfishly speaking, I know she is at peace now and she wouldn’t be if she were still here. Selfishly speaking, I want my grandma back… I want her to know that I finally gave in to becoming a teacher ( everyone knew it was my calling since I was a baby, for real )… RIP to a beautiful lady, I hope you are livin’ it up for your birthday.

02 | PSL’s are back at Starbucks and I’ve already had three… it’s a bad obsession for fall. I need to cut back.

03 | I’m not going to be able to see my grandpa this week for dinner and I’m SO upset. I love spending time with him and we always get to eat the best food. Good company + good eats = the best times.

04 | I seriously have THE best boyfriend and bestfriends anyone could ask for. I just need to take a minute & shout them out because Daniel, Alexah, Nicole… YOU ROCK. God love ya.

05 | Speaking of bestfriends / Nicole – you can come home annnnyyyy minute. I know you only left like two days ago and your school program isn’t over for like…… a year, but skip it. Quit. Come home. Thx man.

06 | Also I just need to take a minute to shout out my parents – y’all rock too XOXO. I’m so thankful that I have parents that I can talk to about anything, be real with and just honestly talk to them as if they are my bestfriends. It makes life so easy and I couldn’t be more appreciative.

07 | Today, while we were getting groceries, my mom and I bumped into a student of hers from last year & the love and respect that the little girl and her dad ( and all of her previous students and parents ) have for her is honestly inspiring and I only hope that one day, I can make that much of an impact on SO many peoples’ lives.

08 | My brother and I may or may not have gotten in a huge fight this AM, but we can put anything past us in like two seconds and I love that about our relationship. Nothing is ever taken to heart & I know it’s not like that between a lot of siblings, so I try to not take it for granted.

09 | I actually miss dance and soccer so much. I really need to take one or the other ( or both! ) up again ASAP. Those and yoga. I need to make time.

10 | Tomorrow my dad is going to visit my nan and his love and care for her is inspiring too. She has been diagnosed with dementia and it’s such a hard disease to cope with but my dad is a rockstar when it comes to loving on my nan. I haven’t been over to see her, it’s been a year… and I know that I really need to suck it up and go visit her before it’s too late.

OK, so that was a lot of love, a lot of deep talk for one night.

I’m off to sleep & dream about PSL’s and yoga.
