Hello bloggies! Hope you all had a lovely holiday today! We took a break from all this house buying, moving and packing business to hang out with a couple of friends and their cute-as-can-be little boy! We spent a little time at a local park and then shared a bite to eat! Very low-key and relaxing...just what we needed! Oh, and you can bet those kiddos took a nice long nap.... the bird didn't even make it back home before he was out! I packed up a few more boxes and got to start on my newest book...something I have been meaning to do for a little while now. In all, we had a very lovely Labor Day and now, with the kiddos in bed, I think I will enjoy a nice cup of coffee and just relax...tomorrow's another big cleaning/packing day for us.
On another note... ( and maybe a slight bit off topic)
I am so very thankful to finally be able to finally have the opportunity to place roots somewhere...something I haven't had since I moved out of my childhood home for college. We've moved once a year, every year since 2007...and I know for a lot of you, that sounds very much the same...especially those of you who have a spouse in the military. I don't want to sound like I am complaining, I'm not. I am just grateful to have a chance to allow my kiddos to experience the familiarity of home, like I did when I was growing up. My parents were able to raise us in the same house for our entire lives...until college. That is almost a rarity now, and I know that this house may not be the forever house....but it will be nice to not have to uproot these little ones so very often.
So since I was thinking of my childhood home a little today, I thought I would share this picture...of me and my big guy on my parent's front porch...the only childhood home I've ever known...
See that cycle happening right before you?

What a wonderful place.
What do you think about when you think of home? Apple pie? Your favorite pet? Playing in the backyard?
