We are all sinking into this new life. Our days are our own again. I am enjoying being a family, cooking, running, sewing, reading and playing with the kids, having friends over, and just living in a house where sun streams through the windows in January.
What I have been trying to wrap my brain around, is that we created a reality from my daydreams. And now, instead of daydreaming all the time, I find myself exactly where I have wanted to be for the last 15 years. I feel at home, in the deepest sense.
I know it is just a house, but it's not. It is the home and life I have been looking for my entire life; Dan, our kids, Alaska. Our life is different here, our family is different here. Moving 3/10ths of a mile changed us and made our family better. How do you put all that in a Facebook post?
So, here we are, enjoying life and feeling grateful.
I still daydream, in a lovely new spot. I am excited to figure out what is next for our family.
