Tag Archives: Toddler In Split Croatia

you and i are more

summer in Split, Croatia with our toddlerI haven’t been feeling so hot lately. I started feeling like I was coming down with something before we left Croatia. That was two weeks ago. Every time I am just about myself again, I’m not. I think I’m on the mend though. I’ve been laying low the past couple days. Mateo and I have watched Disney’s Dumbo more times than I care to admit. He’s actually quite obsessed. Elephants, and trains, and music, OH MY.

I found this ^^ photo from one of our last days in Split, Croatia (where we spent most of time). This was our summer. Us together. On our little adventure. Thank you, Elizabeth, for snapping the photo!

Now, most days were nothing to write home about. The hardest days were stressful, the average days were filled with routine and such, but the best days made me feel like so much was possible. There’s something to being away that makes you want to pack in more. There’s an urgency to “take advantage” of it all. At home or away, I think we all feel that way about summer in general.

It’s every day. Don’t forget.

I get especially bummed out, lethargic, and overwhelmed  when I’m not feeling well. Not so open and not so inspired.

It’s good I married a man who pushes me. I have big ideas and dreamer tendencies, but I also get stuck in my head so easily. Aki makes things happen. He doesn’t seem to have a bummed out, lethargic, or overwhelmed bone in his body.

This summer we had so much more time together. We had so many more conversations about how we want our life to look, about what is possible, and what makes us happy. What I like best about “us” is that we push each other. Sometimes shove (figurative, don’t worry)…and that’s what keeps our life so interesting. I think Mateo agrees.

This is my adventure. I mean, our adventure.

you and i are more
