Eye on the prize

When it all seems overwhelming I try to keep my eye on the prize -
Eating s'mores with my favorite little guys in the rocky mountains.
Moving the lives of 4 people across the country is way harder than I would have imagined.
I am going to make one awesomely sticky s'more when I can finally sit down and watch the sun go down over those mountains.

The Times They Are A Changin'

Reading comments can be so inspiring!!  Someone said I was an 'original blogger' since my first posts were in 2006.  That made me glad I started to write again.
Yesterday, I titled my post Reawakening because I hadn't blogged since 2009.
Once I published it, I realized that the blog from 2009 was also called reawakening because prior to 2009 I hadn't blogged since 2006.
Blogging once every 3 years is not recommended.

Earlier posts were about getting engaged and buying a house.
I can't believe how quick our lives changed.
Our 2 boys are now 6 and 2 years old and we are moving to Denver in June 2016.
We used to have 3 cats, now we have 1 sweet dog and there was a fully functioning aquarium somewhere in the last 3 years.

I hope I can write to convey the excitement and stress we will experience as we prepare to start our next adventure-
moving to Denver, Co!

Thinking of this Ferris Bueller Quote: "Life Moves pretty fast.  if you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."

I am going to try to stop and look, more often

I am so excited to take part in this blogging challenge.
My blog has been dormant for way way too long and I have so much to blog about.
I write to relieve stress, sort out my thoughts and to keeop track of all that happens in my crazy life.
Why do you blog?
