Packing for Home

April is here! April is here!

I feel like I’ve been waiting for this time of the year for forever! I’ve been able to take walks outside nearly everyday as the weather has been consistently in the 50’s. Absolutely amazing!

I am heading for home tomorrow, which means the beginning of one fun month ahead of me. I feel so fortunate to be able to do these sorts of things – things like flying home and then out to see my brother. Not everyone is able to take time off like that, and I think sometimes I need to step back and appreciate life a little more. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in all the tiny things in life that bring you down, but sometimes it’s so good to just take a step back and appreciate all the things you DO have.

There’s been a lot going on in my mind the past couple of weeks. Ryley and I moved to Montana about 7 months ago. It’s been the best time of my life. I’m so happy to share the experience of marriage, moving, and life with him. The part I am struggling with is being in such a new place that doesn’t feel like home. Even seven months later, I still feel foreign here. We’ve tried to get out and immerse ourselves in outdoor activity, the community, and doing things in general, but it doesn’t feel like I can “settle down” if that makes sense. So, I guess I’m trying to figure out what will make us happy in the long run. What makes a place feel like home? Family? Scenery? A general feeling of belonging? I don’t know.

Maybe once we return from vacation I’ll remember all the reasons we moved out here, and focus on being positive!! Sometimes I can let all the crap that’s going in my head block out every good thing that’s around me.

I’ve also been struggling recently with where I want to take this blog. I feel like it’s so jumbled, with no particular theme or direction. I feel like it represents my life in a certain sense. I’m interested in SO many things, but always have found it difficult to pick one path and take it. My husband should feel really lucky by the way…. haha! Kidding 😜 He was a very easy choice. Anyway, for the time being I may just cover my travels and any fun stuff I’ve been doing while on vacation. Hopefully this will give me a clearer path as to what I want to do.

Ultimately, my goal is to create content that is fun, whatever the case may be. I’m a silly person who can’t handle too much seriousness in life, and I want the blog to reflect that. I just have to buckle down and brainstorm a bit!

Hopefully I will have some interesting content up shortly! I’ve got a lot going on this month, so there shouldn’t be a lack of posts for foreseeable future.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all are having a great week so far!
