I don’t know about y’all, but 2020 felt like a year of tidal waves crashing in. Knocking me over, getting back up, and getting knocked over again. It felt like a year of events, some of them a long time coming. And so far, 2021 is looking a lot of the same.
Ideally, I would’ve been writing about our experiences and sharing them, throughout the year. However, I’ve learned over the years that I focus best when I’m able to focus on one pressing thing at a time. Therefore, writing has been mostly on the back burner.
And while 2020 felt like monthly tidal waves crashing in, years prior, I felt like I could hardly keep my head above water. Even with a year holding so much devastation, it also brought growth, and respite.
Now that we are finding our rhythm, I’d love to start sharing our journey with you.
Starting from “the beginning”.
Never in all of my life have I seen snow like this in Texas. Power outages, limited water supplies. And the grocery stores look like early pandemic days. Strangest thing ever.
Also- we have experienced cold winter at least once a month since September.
It’s safe to say, this Texas gal has had enough Winter to last a decade. Bring on the 100+ degree weather!
We all have that someone we look up to. When we think of that person, we think “ahhh! They are living the dream!”
Today, is your reminder that even if it looks like their daily life is rainbows and kittens. It’s not.
Everyone has hard days. And that is ok.
So, if you’re having a day when you feel like you’re the only one. You’re not. We are all out here just trying to figure life out, sometimes, one day at a time.
So. Take a deep breath. Get yourself centered. And keep going.
I absolutely love these that I took at Disney, back in 2012! They are some of my favorites! Here is one of good ole’ Donald Duck:
Probably one of my favorite spots we have stayed has been on Lake Eufaula in Oklahoma. Our spot had a trail right down to the lake. It was beautiful! The kids had fun throwing rocks in the lake.
