It's officially been a whole year since we moved to this town and into this house. We've gone from the chaos of moving, to slowly making our house a home that feels like "us", to creating routines, to just being comfortable and confident that we are, indeed, where we are supposed to be.
I just got lost for about 2 hours looking through photos on my blog-- going back and back and back, looking at all of the memories from the past year. There was definitely a rush of emotions, but the thing I took away more than anything is my appreciation for the mini time capsule this blog has become. Documenting little moments from the past year hasn't just been about pretty pictures or an attempt to portray a "perfect life", but to remember that even in transitional times, hard times, easy times: life really is beautiful. It may not always be simple or smooth, but it is good and I always want to appreciate that.
It's been an amazing year. Nothing is ever completely perfect-- that's not life-- but I feel like this year has been one of the best years for our family. There has been much love and growth. Thanks for reading, friends. :)
