hello there, friend,
this time of year feels bittersweet in so many ways... from school starting, to the many august and september birthdays in our family, to the shifting of seasons and changing of schedules. so many of us are saying goodbye to one thing (or more) in order to say hello to something else entirely.
i think these moments are the ones we should recognize in some way. whether it's a coffee date, a special trip, pie and ice cream, or just sitting alone with our thoughts, it's important to contemplate endings and beginnings, to sit with how the changes are making us feel, to be aware of the possibility that when we say goodbye we may need to grieve just a little.
