Currently: September

S1

True to form, this autumn has found me looking at a season of change. Here is what is going on in my life currently.

reading – the Cainsville series. I’ve read all of the books before, but I was getting the itch to read them all again. I was in between books, and given the hurricane that tore through Tallahassee last week, I found myself with some time on my hands.

trying – a lot of new things. I came to the realization recently that a lot of the “stuff” I have is more because it was affordable or a gift and less because it was something I really liked. So I have been slowly, but surely shedding the things that are merely “stuff” and replacing it with things that I love as I discover them.

hoping – for some clarity. This “self discovery” phase I have been going through, while enlightening, has been making me seriously question where I am in my life vs. where I want to be. The glaring discrepancy between the two has me feeling like I need to do something to remedy the situation; I just haven’t be able to figure out what yet.

decorating – for Fall. Since Florida has two seasons, hot and really hot, the changing of the seasons is only apparent in the holiday aisle of Target and the beverage offerings at Starbucks. Since I don’t feel like missing out on a moment of my favorite time of year, I am slowly striping the house of its standard decor and replacing it with more thematically appropriate trappings.

to-do listing – holiday crafts and recipes. The next couple of months are a bit busy for me at the office, so I like to have small projects I can work on in the evenings. On the weekends I try to prep everything, that way I can just pick it up and go during the week.

What is going on in your life currently?

About Julie

My name is Julieanna Bucior, but I go by Julie (unless I'm in trouble). I'm thirty one. I am a bookkeeper by day, rogue fashion designer/crafter/amateur baker by night. I spend most of my time feeling like a kindergartner trapped inside an adult's body. I love reading, hanging out with my crazy cats and being silly. I'm pretty much the girl next door, with a twist.
