I've been neglecting this blog over the past year not for lack of wanting to write. I love writing. It's therapeutic, it's clarifying, and I enjoy it. I haven't wanted to write because I haven't been happy. Sure, I am happy but I wasn't HAPPY. Ya know? ,But the last year or so has been rough. Moving from Hawaii, although necessary, was the hardest decision I've ever made and then actually moving? That was the literally the hardest thing I've ever done. Ask all our friends that basically packed up our house and moved us. Or my uncle and aunt when we missed our flights because I had the time wrong. I think, subconsciously, I was trying to stay. I would do anything and give anything to move back. But, that's another story for another day. And really another outlet.
Now, we are good. Levi's working a job that he enjoys. I am finally coming out of the 6-months postpartum fog (did you know there is a hormonal shift at 6 months for women? look it up. Or take my anecdotal evidence as evidence enough) I seem to go through. Nursing hormones are crazier than pregnancy for me. Tell me I'm not the only one!
We have been living with my parents. It's been nice and so generous of them to share their home with us. I love watching my kids gain such a great relationship with them. I was Eleanora's age when my family moved into this home and it's a bit surreal raising her in the home I lived in from the time I was 3. Kenny loves his Bapa (which is fitting, since he is named after my dad) and Eleanora can often be found being Nana's shadow. Their little relationships are so sweet to watch. Levi has enjoyed helping out with "homeowner" stuff we never have been able to do since we've only rented. It's fun to see his "Tim the Tool Man Taylor" side coming out.
And that's where we are at. I have days where my heart is so full it could burst. The phrase "my cup runneth over" plays on repeat through my head often as I try hard to hold onto those moments. I am so grateful for my little corner of this earth. I treasure my tender and kind husband and my sweet and innocent children. Here's to updating my blog more! Cheers!
