Back in the Moment

It's been a while, perhaps too long or perhaps just long enough to jump back into this space. We still have no internet at home, just as much from laziness as anything else. But today I have a moment sitting by the chicken coop, listening to clucks and sparrows chirping, using my neighbors' connection, feeling the breeze, and swatting away mosquitoes every three seconds. I have missed this space and wondered what the next subject would be but for now I just want to reacquaint and be back.

After months of fearing the news I'm finally happy to hear it. At least, that one bit I've been waiting for too long. Now it is here and more can be done and I am happy. Just in time to celebrate the 4th of July with a little more pride than I had before. Congratulations to all those who have been waiting and hoping right along with me. It's exciting news.

I can't even think of what has been going on with me for the last few months. It has been hard and confusing, but beautiful as well and I am so grateful to my husband, family, and friends who have shared in making the confusion I've felt less confusing or just helping me to forget it for a moment. I know I'm being cryptic. I'll share another time when it's more clear to myself.

Right now I'm going to join my family on a walk around the farm and fall in love with this place all over again on this, thankfully, sunny day.

Love to you all and be back again soon. Promise.

  1. I know you sometimes ask what we would like to read. After the comment you posted about self reflection on your IG photo tonight, I would like to ask you to write about your experience with post partum depression. I experienced it very deeply with Tyler and like to connect with other mothers on this topic. If its not something you feel comfortable discussing online, perhaps we can chat about it in person. Much love, Leslie.
