autopilot off.


Does anybody else feel like they're done with winter? I'm homesick and friendsick and aching for change of any sort. So much love surrounds me but my mind is elsewhere.

I haven't felt this way in a long time, it comes and goes. The way this nostalgia bombards my mind is overwhelming but in a strange way I don't mind it. My life is mom autopilot all the time and it's feelings like this that remind me that I'm my own person too.

Love you Allie. It feels good to come back to life doesn't it? Even if it's only fleeting, you're in there and you are larger than the sum of your (mom) parts. :)

I feel much the same, I am so done with winter. I need a change of some sort. I'm lonely, and I'm bored being stuck inside all the time with a toddler! The good weather will bring good things. :)

I always get super restless during January. Thank you for letting me know that I am not the only one:) The best part is it doesn't last.
