You may wonder where I’ve been since February. Or, maybe not. Maybe you don’t know where you’ve been since February.
Since my February 2014, I’ve packed up 11 years worth of personal belongings, moved said personal belongings to a new house (which is actually an old, historic house), unpacked and organized said belongings into a cohesive, functioning, household – all while still working, mothering, wife-ing, social-life-ing, and generally being alive.
This does not include the unforeseen, and oft aggravating, projects that a new/old house blindsides you with – because, you know, old houses.
Lots of cool things have happened, as well as some not-so-cool, but one thing that is literally cool is the fact that it is now Autumn in New Jersey and that means things like this:
In addition to it being an awesome autumn, summer was full of all sorts of goodness, too. Lots of trips to the beach, our annual family trip to New Hampshire, and the highlight of my summer: my sweet little nephew, DJ, was born! He looks just like my brother. And my sister-in-law. It’s funny how one person can look just like, well, two.
And I don’t know what it is about this time of year, but I get starting to feel all the feelings in Autumn and well – that gets me thinking – which then makes me want to blog.
So, I’m back! Stay tuned… there’s over 800 photos on my phone right now, along with 22 different recipes I want to share, a zillion things to say about learning and education, and copious, gratuitous photos of my new digs that I’m pretty proud of.
