nearing the end

yeah, i feel like we're the masters of goodbyes these days.

we've had a wonderful summer in Colorado with mountains, family and friends and we are nearing the end.

This morning i was working slowly and groggy and decided to take a break. Landon was still asleep, so i decided to do what i wanted most - to visit my grandmother. She brought out her home-made cookies and banana bread and I so enjoyed talking with her over delicious home-baked goodies. We both enjoy our coffee the exact same way - strong, bold, and black - she is an excellent coffee companion - the only person i can share my pot with who will enjoy it as heartily as i do. And i love to hear stories about her when she was my age and all of her adventures as she raised a family in the 60's and 70's. She is full of wisdom which i covet right now and appreciate - i walk around these days so insecure and confused. And she loves me a lot. i mean a lot, and has always been supportive and somehow able to understand me when many others don't. Yeah, it was great to spend my afternoon with her today. Trying to take advantage of this time when i'm in town!

This last week here i feel like every moment needs to be intentional - granted, i still have a lot of work to do - but i'm taking more time out of my day for people that i love.

Tonight Landon and I are having dinner with a dear friend that i have known for almost every year of my life. She and her husband and beautiful little boy just moved onto a farm and i can't wait to see their life amongst little chickens and green houses and whatever else an organic farm houses - i guess we will see.(this is a picture of her ACTUAL farm - used without permission, hehe)

I'm just so grateful to have such wonderful friends and family to get to share my life with.
