Hard to believe we’ve been doing these seasonal bucket lists for a year now! You can find last year’s here.
I don’t know about you, but I’m confused about where the summer actually went. Just a minute ago we were gearing up for going to the beach, and
I did manage to cram the summer full of bucket list fun. I spent a week at the beach with 25 family members and 3 dogs in one house, explored an art museum, and watched fireworks over Smith Mountain Lake. I sent Logan a birthday care package – 30 things for his 30th birthday! – and helped some friends pack their house to move.
The most exciting piece of the fall is that Logan is coming home from deployment! Most of the fall is framed around that.
One thing that military life is teaching me – and let’s be honest, it’s true for most of life, the military just makes it drastic – that it’s important to embrace what’s right in front of me. I’ve had to work hard during this deployment to do that. I’ve talked more about it here, but it’s been hard some days to just function normally, let alone take advantage of the freedom I have while Logan’s deployed. But I don’t want to put life on hold to wait for the next thing – him getting home, our next assignment, the next year, whatever that may be. Do that for too long, and your life passes you by.
So I’m embracing fall on the east coast while I’m here, and I’ll embrace fall with Logan in Oklahoma once he’s stateside!
