If you follow me on instagram you probably have noticed alot of home photos lately. Ive been very focused on my nest lately. Partly out of excitement for something coming up, but also I find myself going through natural ebbs and flows of being really into my space. Right now, I am just really into home. I can be a very big home body, and I don't mean that lightly. You could even say, Hermit. This winter season has brought on that part of myself. I'm so ready for the sun to come out and to get outside and play, but lately while the weather has been cold and rainy, I just want to stay home, nest, sit by the fire, drink coffee and basically just be. Could be part of the retrograde period we are in too, seeping in an extra dose of slow motion and rewind. The past few days especially, between retrograde, the full moon + my moontime, my body has been requesting to just do absolutely nothing of importance. Which is not a bad thing. It's been a good opportunity to take to just be. We all need that, cyclically, to recharge. Right now my battery is sputtering out and in need of a good recharge. It can be easy to confuse these times with being lazy, or un-accomplished, or whatever label you want to put on it, when you pretty much always have a to-do list. But if you can just set those thoughts aside and go with it, you will feel so much better and re-energized within a few days time.
I'm in an interesting place with 'home' right now. I am a constant re-arranger. I love decorating, and re-decorating, and you can find me doing something to our home almost every day of my life. That is how much I love it. Our home is really feeling magical, and is so full of beauty, and old things, and sentimental things, and things that make me happy. I feel truly blessed to call this place home. And at the same time, I can't stop thinking about our future home. James and I have talked alot about moving to a new home in the future, and we both have it on our hearts lately. So even though I'm happily nesting away everyday here, I'm also in la la dream land over a new place. I can't explain why. Something in my heart is just pulling me, and has been for some time, to make a move. It's like we both know this is not where we want to live for the rest of our lives, or where we want to raise our future kiddos forever, etc. Maybe with my word being Root this year, part of the call is to find the place I really want to put down real roots.
We are not in a rush. We will be patiently waiting for the right timing, the right home, the big YES. We will know it when it comes along. It feels so good to have the same dreams, goals and visions with your husband. I think we are more on the same page this year than we ever have been and its such a good feeling.
