Hello September

This summer has been  an exciting adventure!

We finally sold our 1st house and took an amazing road trip through the United States with 2 cats, 2 cars, and my sister.  We both grew up in our home town and knew that we did not want to turn 30 there.  We wanted to travel to a new place with new people and no nearby safety nets and make it on our own.  That is exactly what we have done!

On June 1st we said “see ya later!” and now, somehow, it is September…

I think more than anything else I have been missing the familiarity of home.  Knowing that there are people that I can visit with or catch for a walk or a cup of coffee at nearly any hour of the day.  I knew where all the cool places were and where to find the most beautiful views.  It was easy to catch a dance class with my friends because back in my home town a bunch of them run their own classes.

Being in a new place definitely has its advantages.  I get to experience many things for the first time and I don’t have to worry about running into people I know while I am sweating and suffering through a workout at the gym…  Even still, I get anxiety about going in.

I am also a little more afraid of doing things alone because I don’t know my way around yet, but it is a process and I am getting the hang of it.

I feel like I am at a cross-roads right now.  I have one more year left in my undergrad studies and am trying to decide what I want to focus on this quarter.

Also, should I do this bullet-journal thing for another month or should I just throw in the towel and buy a calendar?

Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
