Stopping. Seeing. Rambling.


 There is so much I want to talk about here. To document and keep for my future self. So much that sometimes I start to feel weighed down by it. Guilty almost that I've fallen behind. Things like my thoughts on our summer. The hectic pace that September and October have been. The loss of both my mother-in-law and father-in-law this year. Soccer. Sewing with friends in Michigan. Attending an incredible retreat a few weeks ago. Hosting two students from Denmark for a week. Pumpkin chunkin' and an all girls trebuchet building team. How I see my husband and his relationship with my daughters. And on.

I hope to write of these things. But am also trying to allow myself not to. Life is busy these days. 


I am rushing, racing and rambling. But I'm doing my best to find beauty in each day. To stop, notice and appreciate.

And breathe.

I remember that season in life...I remember it well. It was before I discovered blogging. I don't know how I would have fit that in so go on...live this moment in time. I know you want to capture it all...I did. So I took lots of pictures. Somehow, I think you've got that covered. :) Your heart will remember the rest.

I wrangle with that also Dana. What do I write? Do I really write what is on my mind? Should I really stop what I'm doing to write things done? I feel pulled all the time.

I used to say "I think I just met myself in the road" ----that feeling that life is RUSHING by like the wind blowing my hair as i drive to the next thing with my window down. Then you turn around and she's packing her car to move to Staten Island saying to me "I got this"

slow and steady somedays now. Sometimes its like it has been for so long. But goodness slow and steady feel so good.

I've been bad at getting stuff down on the blog too. I've been too busy experiencing (and taking pics) to actually write things out.
I'm sorry to hear about your in-laws. That's a tough thing to deal with.

I'm very sorry about the loss of your mother- and father-in-law. It's never easy to say goodbye to loved ones.

Kudos to you for being reflective on life each day, desite the business of it. Sometimes I get so caught up in the day-to-day b.s. that when I finally look up it's evening and I'm winding down for bed. I always love seeing your photos and the beautiful countryside you live in. Thanks for taking the time to keep that coming no matter what. :)
