A Dose of Pretty

Time is an interesting concept. Ever since I was a child, I found that time seemed to fly by. As a kid, it was my summer vacations that felt unbearably long {I guess I felt the need to be productive even then and didn’t realize the benefit of just being able to watch TV for three months straight} but the year would go by in the snap of a finger. As an adult, summers go by equally as fast as the other three seasons, and somehow a decade {or two} feel like yesterday instead of a lifetime ago. I mean, the new millennium has been able to legally drink for nearly two years now and there are legal adults who were born in the 2000s, yet I swear it feels like Y2K was just yesterday.

So, it didn’t surprise me when I realized at the start of this week that we were already over halfway through October. While the weather has cooled down tremendously and made it clear that it is autumn, it still feels strange to think that Halloween will be here in a week and a half, Thanksgiving is a little over a month away, Christmas is in just a couple of months, and somehow it will be a whole new year in about 10 weeks. It was a gentle reminder to truly enjoy the present moment because I love this time of year so very much. Thus, I’m planning on being very intentional about savoring every moment this season in hopes that time can slow down for once. Have a lovely weekend! x
