Life Lately, October 2022

I won't lie - I have kind of been dreading writing this post. To prioritize my health, I've had to really cut back on what I do right now, and focus on getting enough rest. In the day-to-day, I can handle it, and it doesn't really feel that bad. But when I have to look over the past month and see it retrospectively... it's a little bit harder to come to grips with. I know this won't be forever, but it's just frustrating in the now, while it's happening.

Life Lately, September 2022

Looking back over this last month is a little bit of a ride - I felt pretty decent in the beginning of the month, and was actually pretty busy!

I try to lay low before trips and not pack my schedule, because travel can be physically tiring for me, so it actually worked out well. But as I was scrolling through my camera roll for the last month, it was filled with mostly pictures of me reading a book or drinking coffee on my patio! It's the little things that really do bring joy.

Life Lately, May 2022

This has definitely been a slower month for me - being hit with back pain really forced me to re-evaluate and cancel lots of plans that had been scheduled. I'm also still not comfortable going to big, unmasked events, so that limits my options a bit, too. On the plus side, the weather has finally taken a turn, which means I'm not feeling claustrophobic in my own house anymore. So here's what I've been up to over the last month.
