goodbye weekend!

Oh, what a weekend. For some reason I feel exhausted right now, even though I've been getting a lot of sleep. Let's just hope I'm not getting sick because this week is crunch time for my sister's wedding! Yes, in LESS THAN A WEEK my little sister will be a married woman. That just seems crazy to think that she is all grown up. It's funny how certain people in your life always seem the same- in a weird way I think I always imagine my sister as being much younger than she is, and it's often surprising when I'm hit in the face with all of these adult things she's doing.

The past few days have been a whirlwind of getting things done, which is a always a good thing, and I'm feeling very inspired and fresh. Yes, fresh. I know that may be an odd way to describe my current and most common mood lately, but I just mean that I feel new and happy and just "fresh." Take from it what you will. But I attribute this overall wonderful feeling to a number of things, from hanging out with new people, spending more time with friends, Madeline and Henry starting to really notice one another, happiness in so many of my loved ones' lives, and getting some decorating done around the house. Happy. And plus, my baby sister is getting married, how could I not be on cloud nine?! This week is going to be a good one, I'm sure of it. I will mention though one tiny little weird thing that I sometimes do when I'm this happy...I start thinking about how strange it is to be happy, and to fully know that I won't be happy forever. I've always been this way, it's like I almost can't exist in the happy moment for too long before I have to remind myself that it will soon be gone. Bizarre, I know. And luckily I've pretty much stopped those kind of thoughts (they ruin everything!) but I do think about it sometimes when I type something like that out. Oh, brain. Why you so crazy. And on that note, I am going to get back to my sewing, but here are some photos and highlights from the past few days via instagram. Enjoy your upcoming week!

  3. aww I hope the wedding goes well - I'm sure it will! I'm exactly the same when I suddenly have a moment of complete happiness, it will last for a short amount of time but then I'll remember that it can't last for too long and it completely ruins it! I hate that! xx

  4. I do the same thing, analyzing my happy times. I have a hard time living in the moment and getting out of my brain! At least you don't think about being dead. Two weeks after Vada was born I found my first grey hairs and suddenly it was like I realized I was mortal or something. That made for some craziness, let me tell you! ;) Excited to see what you're sewing!

  9. I have the same trouble with sabotaging my own happy moments by over-thinking them. Actually, the almost hubs just called me out on doing so last night!

  10. Hahaha, I do the exact same thing. glad to know it's not just me. I guess the key is being able to see it for what it is - an errant thought - than getting carried away by it. Have a fab week!

  12. Oh don't worry, I'm the same when I feel happy. I think it's something that's particularly common with people who have experience of depression or anxiety. But just enjoy it while it lasts! Some people in this world never get to experience long periods of happiness :(

  13. Oh you sew? I had no idea, since i thought you said something about how you admire crafty people but arnt that crafty yourself. Or maybe im just hallucinating. Anyhow, that is awesome. Im a beginner sewer myself (talking about sewing, check out what my boyfriend gave me yesterday! http://ohmahgad.blogspot.com/)

  16. what a great weekend! i do the same thing, sometimes i wish my mind would just shut up and let me enjoy the moment instead of worrying about when the next happy time will find me and what it will consist of. oh, and then i start thinking about why certain things make me happy and why other things don't...it's baaad. congrats to your baby sis, how exciting!!

  17. we must have the same type of brain..i've been known to ruin a great moment with thoughts like that. i also tend to expect the worst outcome to a situation so that i'm pleasantly surprised when everything works out:)
