Change

A lot of things are changing right now. The weather is warming up and the trees and flowers are blooming once again. My life is following suit.

I am more active now than I have been in quite some time. I walk daily, do yoga and have been busy redoing our front and backyards. I've been in pain, I have achey joints and muscles, but I always wake up searching for a new project. I am no longer allowing my health issues control me. I am stronger than I think, and have surprised myself at how much I can endure. I have no intention of stopping anytime soon. I have already set up walking dates with my local girlfriends, and want to start doing a class or two a week while the kids are in school. Dance, yoga, just something!

I have welcomed a new more social side of myself. Hosting a girls night, and meeting up with my favorite local ladies to just talk and enjoy the company of women who lift each other up. It's been refreshing! I am VERY lucky to have them.

Todd has been offered a new job. He starts in 2 weeks and I couldn't be prouder! He has not ceased to amaze me with how hard he works. He gave his blood sweat and tears to his current company for the last few years. But he is on the fast track to become the next Director and it's incredible to stand beside him in this journey. I find new reasons to love him each day. I am VERY lucky to have him.

Nora lost her first tooth last week, and a second one this morning. My baby girl is officially a big girl. Landen is also growing by the second. Tall and skinny and devastatingly handsome. They both are such wonderful kids. I am VERY lucky to have them.

I am welcoming change, forgiving the past, letting go and embracing my life every moment.
