Transitional stuffs have been hard, harder than expected. These Colorado days and nights feel so long without my life-partner by my side. Even though we’re both technically in Denver, we rarely get to see each other and even when we do I am acutely reminded that our longest days of our separation are yet to come.

I know that these lonely days are short-lived + I am trying to embrace these moments of solitude. For this is an adventure, and one that we chose. Soon enough we will off doing bigger and better things; following our dreams and living a full purposeful + joyous life. It will pay off, it will be worth it.

Because it’s been really easy for me to feel down lately, here are a few things that are bringing me a lot of happiness…

My little brother is getting married this weekend!! Finally – my family is starting to roll in for all the celebrations, this is so exciting. Yesterday we celebrated Franky’s birthday. We ate figs + pistachios + goat cheesecake and I watched the sun set over an apple tree in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. My dad was there and so were my grandparents and life was pretty perfect.

Tonight we’re going to a Rockies Game and tomorrow I’m making food for the rehearsal dinner/gathering of sorts. I think I will make this, and this and a version of this. Oh and Saturday I will {finally} get to see my Christopher and party with all my friends and family. It is certainly the day I’ve been looking most forward to since we got here.
