I don't feel like I have anything to say.
I haven't planned or given this post any thought at all.
I haven't posted in two. whole. months.
We had an amazing summer (that incredibly, doesn't seem to be over yet on the West Coast) filled with boating and swimming and BBQ's and fun.
We entered into our September quite naturally, but wasn't expecting the month that followed.
As a family, our week usually consists of about one or two evenings per week at the most, where either one or both of us need to be somewhere.
All of September, we went weeks on end without an evening at home together.
Even though it was unexpected, it didn't feel foreign or "busy". Looking back now, I realize that we simply entered into a new season of life and we've been enjoying all the new opportunities and responsibilities that have come our way.
September also involved a lot of house tidying and organizing. I took on a room a day for about a week and went through each with a fine tooth comb.
I found the quote on Pinterest:
.....and it's been messing with my mind ever since.
It's caused me to look at everything I "own" differently and re-evaluate all of stuff I keep.
It's forced me to get creative with storage and learn to up cycle things I already have to make them more useful.
Like this handy sunglasses holder I made from a picture frame, twine and spray paint that I had around the house.
God is continuing to challenge me and stretch me and is continuing to define what my life and the lives of my family will look like.
This is one big ramble and it makes no sense.
I don't know that anyone will read this.
It feels good to write again, to reflect and to see how God has been working our home over the past few months.
I don't know when I'll blog again.
I've been giving a lot of thought to what I want to use this blog for. I feel as though this space has become quite boring and dull.
I really don't think anyone cares to read about my kids everyday.
I don't feel like my life is interesting enough.
That's where I'm at - unedited.
