Is there a 'command z' (or 'edit undo') button for life?
I recently posted that my little family was packing up and moving to Savannah, GA because my husband took a new job. I am happy (and sad) to announce that we are not moving to Savannah. We were two days away from moving when my husband and I decided that it was not the right move (no pun) for him professionally. Sure, it would have been nice to have figured this out a couple weeks sooner – but I sure as heck am happy that we figured this out a few days before loading up the moving truck.
So here I am, editing this blog post that was originally an announcement about our move. I really do not have much to say, other than – I remain grateful for all of the things that I have in life, rather than the things I lack. There have been a few things that have happened in the last couple months that have given me great perspective. Life is just too short to worry about something like packing and unpacking boxes. And not living near the beach again. Sigh. ;)
So, as I said before, I'll say it again: Sometimes life takes us in a new direction and we just have to follow that flow. It can be exciting, scary, thrilling and sad all at once. But we have to embrace it and make the best of it. We can't look back. We can't worry about the future. We just have to ride that wave–trusting that it is going to be one hell of a ride.
Here are some awesome reasons to visit Savannah, Georgia. We'll be back someday, pretty lady.
Here are some shots from our visit a month ago… when Finn discovered pure "gold". The beach, the sand and the mysterious ocean. I swear I did not coordinate Finn and my color matching.
