Today is a new day. A gift. A fresh start. How will you spend it?
When did we grow up? Because somewhere down the line it happened. Now my friends are getting married, they’re having kids, they’re joining the Army, and they’re living life. College is no longer a thing simply talked about, it’s a thing that’s here. Graduation is no longer a three years from now thought, it’s knocking on the door. It’s saying, “I’m coming. This spring I’m coming.”
So when did we grow up? When did things change? It’s amazing at how life shifts, and things change, all within the blink of an eye.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” — Mark Twain
I’ve had this blog for a year now today. A year now today. Crazy, huh? It’s amazing at how fast that time has flown.
I may not write often, but you can guarantee life is a never ending adventure on this end of the screen.
I just got back yesterday from a small town in Ohio, where I found out my new zip code will be located. It’s a small town, much like where I was living in Illinois; much like the one I’m often homesick for.
I love adventure.
I promise I’ll write soon.
Look at this, just look at this. I have been gone for far too long. Which is almost ironic, because a couple of months ago I thought, “Oh, yeah, school will be getting out, and I’ll have loads of time to blog.” Then I log out, and I let my account sit. School gets out. I move. My blog becomes an attic for spiders to spin webs, and my old posts collect dust. This becomes an in-active blog, and is forgotten about by all.
I’m changing that.
Yes, I thought that once school was over I would have loads more time. I was wrong.
One positive to not blogging for 2 months-I now have lots of things to write about, and post.
But, as for this blog, I’ll leave you with a summary of my summer.
Summer = Sunshine, laughter, visiting with friends and family.
Summer = Camp, Camp, Camp.
Summer = Celebrating
Summer has always been a busy time for my family, but I think this summer’s been the busiest so far. 🙂 Which is okay with me. That’s one thing I enjoy about getting a break from school, things are constantly go, go, going…
What I don’t understand is how I managed to read so much this summer. I’m still trying to figure it out. If you’re in the mood for a good book, I suggest reading Appointment with Death by: Agatha Christie. Some other books I enjoyed reading this summer were Inkheart by: Cornelia Funke, and A Wrinkle In Time by: Madeleine L’Engle.
Well, that’s my summer. I’ll close out with a song:
Keep checking back for new posts coming soon.
The week before the move, all the way through to the week after, you always seem to be living out of boxes.
Nearly everything is packed, waiting for the truck to arrive tomorrow, and we still have a week left before we leave. I’m getting anxious though. Anxious, and ready to get goin’.
I only have a short time before my room is to be finished. Think I can make it? We only have 3 weeks until the house is to be completely packed. I feel like the end is approaching quickly. By this time next month, I’ll be an official citizen of Michigan.
