a small account

Tuesday, December 1, 2015

It's 11:37 pm, December 1st, 2015.

Because posting an account of all the recent changes (small & large) in my life seems a little daunting, instead I will post an account of my day.

I woke up with Steele curled around me. Somehow drug myself out of bed, and into clothes, and downstairs. Where there were leftover pancakes waiting. Steele and I left the house, and backed out of the driveway, and drove in opposite directions. (In a very suburban feeling way.) There was a crash on the highway, and it made me about ten minutes late to work. But then I was there, at work, just for a short shift today. I left at 2, and I did some somewhat successful Christmas shopping. And then I came home, and Steele and I left the house together to go to my studio, where we made the Save the Dates for our wedding. After that, we came back and made dinner, and decorated our tiny bedroom Christmas tree. Did the dishes. Steele left for fustal. I heated up a cup of apple cider, and put on a movie. And now we're here. It sounds a little boring, all written up like that. These are the boring things that make up a day.

But it was a good day. There was the pre-dawn light, and the sun rising in the morning. There were flowers. There was a moment in my studio making the Save the Dates, one of those moments in all of this wedding planning where I feel a little spark of wonder, still, that it's happening. And of course there was the Christmas tree, and the Christmas socks, and the Christmas lights.
