Curl up with a cup of coffee

Good morning lovely people! Today, I’m curling up with a cup of coffee to share a few honest and heartfelt moments with you. There are few things that I love more than sitting with a cup of coffee or tea with a friend and chatting the day away. With the hum of a coffee grinder, the sounds of gathering families, and soft music in the background, talking over a frothy beverage is truly a wonderful thing. So pour yourself a cup of coffee or tea and stay a while.

If we were meeting up at a coffee shop, we would order a couple cappuccinos and some biscotti and find a comfy corner to sit in and catch up with each other.

If you were to ask me how I’m doing I would tell you that I feel all over the place. 

I would tell you that I am extremely excited and overwhelmed in clinic all at the same time. That I absolutely love working with patients and helping them figure out what kind of treatment they need but that I am terrified that I’ll screw up and get something wrong. 

I would tell you that I am experiencing simultaneous anxiety and elation and I’m having trouble sorting through it all.

I would tell you that I’m afraid of not doing enough. 

I would tell you that I have been having a lot of crazy and active dreams lately and that I often wake up in the morning as if I was running a marathon all night and not feeling that rested at all. 

I would tell you that I’m mentally and emotionally exhausted but that I am extremely lucky to be doing what I’m doing. 

I would tell you that I feel guilty for not doing more housework and laundry and not even having the desire to do it. 

I would tell you that I love my husband more and more each day and I appreciate his generous and patient spirit. That we are in such an amazing place in our marriage and that I hope I am deserving of such a blessing as him. 

I would tell you that I miss my family and that I wish I was better at being a phone person for staying in touch with everyone. {I am the worst phone person ever.} 

I would tell you that I have been having baby fever and that I am looking forward to expanding our little twosome one day. 

I would tell you that I love my few but close friends. They are supportive, loving, and giving and I am so lucky to have them in my life {Hi Natalie, Josh, Melissa, Joy, Loeta, Cassie, Katie, and Allisun!} 

I would tell you that I am getting a cold/infection and that I am determined to fight it and that I do not have time for illness. 

I would tell you that I have really enjoyed my little corner of the blogging world and that I enjoy this little creative outlet. 

How are you doing? I always enjoy it when any of you share your life with me. 

Thanks for curling up with a cup with me,
