I’m so far behind on blogging, I don’t even know where to begin! I know, it could be really easy for me to say, “life got in the way, time just flies, etc. etc” but we have had alot more going on than that. I was trying really hard to avoid writing this post, but I finally realized that its okay – its okay to open up a little.
Do you ever go through a period in your life, say a few days, or a few weeks, or perhaps a few months, where you seriously start to wonder if there is a dark cloud over your head? Well, Scott and I have been going through one of those times these last few months. Nothing huge or devastating has happened, just a bunch of little things that have been piling up on top of each other. We moved, Scott left his job, our car died in the middle of nowhere Utah, Kali (one of our indoor kitties) had been lost (and then found thank goodness), we bought a new car (Honda Civic Hybrid) after said car died, I ended up at the doctors and now Scott needs to have surgery. Oh, yeah, we are also still living at my parents and had our credit card number stolen online. Sometimes you just wonder where all the bad ends and goodness starts to happen again….
I think we had a huge turn of events the end of last week when we found out my cousin and her husband are going to be adopting a baby in a few weeks (ahh! we are just in tears excited). Life has that way of making us do a double-take.
Now that the storm seems to have subsided (over our heads at least), we can really look back and appreciate what we have gone through. Times like this definitely make us stronger and we are just so thankful that my familiy was right here with us. I think the hardest part of it all, is that we had plans. We wanted to travel tons this year, buy a house, etc. etc – its hard to put some of your deepest desires on hold and wait for the right time. I know that we still have a few more bumps in the road in the near future, but all in all, life isn’t that bad. Every morning I wake up and look outside my window and see the mountains, the yarn drying in the fresh air, the kitties and Scott still sleeping — and I just have to smile.
I have been doing some knitting, and I’ll show you three finished projects in the near future. Thanks so much for reading – xo, Dani
