A Quiet Interlude...

Serenity now, insanity later!

I read a quote from Joanna Gaines, Owner of Magnolia Homes and host of HGTV's Fixer Upper.  It seems to fit my life right now.

"Embrace your season of life.  Let your home be a place where you thrive.  For example, if you are an EMPTY NESTER, let the atmosphere of your home allow you to move EMOTIONALLY forward so you don't feel stuck in the past."

That's where I am right now.  Patience my friends as I move emotionally forward.  Embracing this new season, with the guy who was with me from the beginning.  Just the two of us.  Seems strange, a little scary, exciting even... but lonely.  Reinventing myself at this time in my life will take some doing.  Mikey was the last one home, but so ready to go, so brave and happy.  How can I be sad?  I choose happiness, along with a box of kleenex to wipe us the residual happiness!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy this beautiful day!

It's been a year for me and I'm still trying to reinvent myself. It's a "weird" transition, that's for sure!
