@lightleaksandmountainpeaks It's nearly 3am where we are and despite the exhaustion I'm feeling, I cant seem to fall asleep. We celebrated at a friend's wedding last night, woke up and squeezed in some time on an open lake with more friends. I ended the day with an evening senior portrait session and finally ended up back home late tonight. Tomorrow is another packed day of family birthday celebrations, and prepping for our summer finale days ahead.
It feels like summer just happened all in the same week and we're being catapulted straight into autumn. I'm strongly opposed to living the high speed busy lifestyle that so many fall victim to. It'll chew you up. Life is too short to stay so busy so often, folks. Stopping to smell the flowers seems to be a privilege these days for most of us, and sometimes even a source of guilty sentiment. There's so much to do all the time and as summer continues fleeting by, it seems the only challenge greater than catching up on the to-do lists, is catching a breath.
But tonight as I (attempt to) lay myself down to sleep, my skin smells like sweat and sun lotion. My face feels tight from squinting in the sun and sharing smiles. I am physically exhausted, but mentally recharged. We all know that no one can pour from an empty cup, but we have to remember to stay grateful for these buzzing days. Afterall, it's the only way to truly appreciate the quietness that follows when they are just washed out, golden memories.
