Hello all! I’m sorry I have been missing from here these past 2 weeks. I started working last Monday and have found myself mentally exhausted by the end of the day. The study I had planned to do in my free time, has been pushed to the weekends and late nights. Apart from keeping my brain from exploding and my eyeballs from falling out, I have had no time to indulge in the precious, beautiful things in my life. I know in time I will settle in to this new routine and will find a pattern that works that allows me to slow down and engage in the things I love. But for now, here is a snippet of my evening. A stolen half hour with the dog at dusk along the river. Cold, beautiful and golden, and a treasured reminder to stop and enjoy.
