These antlers have been on my mind for about 3 years and have been in my possession for almost one year. They have finally been put up in my home! So I think I can mark that as an accomplishment! Now for creating memories and a life here.
You can see a bit of streamers on the piano for my husband's birthday. We are having a couple of new neighbors over for dessert tonight to start warming the house up. I decided that rather than wait to be who we are until we are all more comfortable, just jump right in. Otherwise, it would be a waste of time. Another thing I bring from Miami...

Have a great day!

stuck in a moment

We are on the Gulf of Mexico! We've been here for a week + 1 day and I can already feel the pace slowing and life becoming more simple. Partly because I have no friends here ;). HAHA! But partly because this move is so different from the last one. I don't know what it was about Key Biscayne, but it shored me up and got me fit for.. anything.

Do I recommend moving? If you don't have to, there is no need. But if you have to, welcome it. God has a plan and reason for moving us here. I don't know what it is entirely, but the smooth gulf and white sands stretching for miles tell me its alright.

Have a great weekend, friends!

brighter than the sun

We are all prone to certain things. It's just how we are made. And it's not bad.

I'm prone to reflection. I remember being a child and young adult with a certain restlessness. Not the type that appears externally, but entirely in my own inner world. There was a seeking, but toward what? I wanted to be enveloped in the security of a world where the whole and all of its parts were understood and supporting me in my journey.

I thank God that I have that now. What an incredible gift we are given to discover Truth. It's a life's work and the best one we will ever have,  ending in the basking of His light, warm, sure, and full.

Happy new year.
