Two Months from Now

As much as I really, really, really work to live in the now (mindfulness...not dwelling on the past or worrying about the future), I'll be honest. I'm a worrier/dreamer about the future. This future is a new future. In a new state. Searching for the first house that I will have ever owned. It's exciting and frightening all wrapped into one.

I will have:
a Minnesota driver's license, address, license plate

a new job

driven over 1800 miles with 2 children, 2 geriatric cats, 1 black lab, and 4 adults in a caravan of
a SportWagen & Penske truck hauling a Jetta

I will be:
experiencing a temperate fall for the first time in 8 years

on the cusp of entering the coldest and snowiest winter I've ever experienced (& introducing my kiddos to snow for the first time!)


glove, scarf, boot, and winter coat searching

driving around the Twin Cities etching its map into my brain's atlas

missing my sister & her family as well as Arizona friends

thankful that we made it safely to our "in-between" home

In all of it - the now & the future (because the past has already been lived) - my goal is to be thankful and realize the importance of each moment, from then to now, and how this path is exactly where I'm supposed to be.
