If you’ve been following my Instagram account you may have noticed that I’ve been out on an adventure in Central / Eastern Europe for the last few weeks. Over the course of three weeks we’ve been in Poland, Austria, Hungary and Slovakia seeking out adventure. I made sure to keep a close account of the trip by taking the time to write “my memoirs” in “my diary” along the way. These notes started out detailed and precise but by the end of it my writing became sloppy and full of fragmented sentences. Consider that a bit of foreshadowing for you.

After close to 24-hours of sleepless travel we landed in Oklahoma City around 8PM last night. We promptly went to the grocery store and stocked up on veggies and coconut water. After 3 weeks of living off little more than cheese, bread, pastries, gelato and alcohol I’m feeling the need to detox a little a lot. More on that later. After stocking our fridge (ah, nothing like a stocked fridge) Jeremy and I settled into our own bed, with our own sheets and only woke up a couple times in the middle of the night forgetting we were home. It’s good to be back.

Today I’ve been replying to emails, cuddling some kitties, eating clean food, catching up on laundry, doing some hot yoga and washing my hair. Yes, washing my hair very much deserves its own line-item. But I’m looking forward to tomorrow. Tomorrow I hit the ground running. Over the next few weeks I’ll be sorting through my photos and crafting which stories to tell you about our first time in Europe. I’m also looking forward to reassessing what I’ve been devoting my attention to (or rather, what’s been dividing my attention) and honing in on what’s important – mostly as it relates to consumption – everything from what I eat to what I wear to how I browse the internet. I’ve also got some exciting things in the works with Braid Creative – which I’ll share more about later as well. This homecoming feels like a fresh start, of sorts – and I’m going to leverage that momentum for all its worth.
