This is the face of

This is the face of a woman who is scared and excited and grateful and tired.
This is the face of someone who wants school to be over,  her new house moved in to, and eight uninterrupted hours of sleep.

This is also the face of a woman who is nervous about leaving the only house she has ever been a mother in, the only house she has ever been a wife in, the house next door to the one she grew up in.

But this face is going to try desperately to spend the day smiling and delighting in all the things that this beautiful world has to offer: chubby, baby thighs, kids learning to ride bikes, fresh strawberries from the farmer's market, a three day weekend. 


  1. Yay, you're back! Missed you! :-P.

    Moving sure is stressful, especially if you're moving out of a place you've been living in for so long. I hope you start feeling a little less stressed soon. Good luck!

    1. Thanks so much Sabrina. I'm sure for you military folks ovin' ain't no thang, but I'm a wuss and this is hard man. Once we're in, I don't know if I'm ever leaving.
