one thousand gifts

whirlwind september [303-343]

September has been nonstop. Work leaves me exhausted, my husband just got a new job, and we moved into a new apartment a week ago. Top that off with the usual commitments with friends, family, church, and business, and September has been quite busy! I feel like I should have more things listed below as a lot of time has passed since the last update, but I wasn’t good at writing things down while rushing around. I need to slow down again. I don’t particularly enjoy being busy — life is too short for that. Quiet time, moments of rest, and leisure are very important. I’m creating time for them again — which is absolutely needed as fall is my favorite season and I want to enjoy every moment of it!
