In 7 days we will be moving – going on an adventure is what we have been telling the kids. I find myself day dreaming all too often of our new house, especially the backyard. There are many things I will miss about where we are now, but I feel like the phrase onward and upward is fitting.

It is OKAY to miss things and also to MOVE ON. The beauty of life is that we all don’t have to like the same people, places, or races.

Here is a peak at where I will be blogging from in a week. I seriously CAN’T WAIT!!!


A friendly reminder you can vote once a day every day! Thank you for taking the time to help me DREAM BIG.

  2. Thank you!! The flowers are my favorite :) Our backyard now has NO flowers at all – so it is going to be a nice change!!!

    If you hate me so much why do you return week after week to harrass me? You have a choice NOT to read my blog if you don’t like me.

    Have a wonderful day!

  15. This backyard looks like vacation!! What a great place to escape! So happy for you!!

  16. Is this really necessary? If this is really bothering you so much, why even reading and commenting on this blog?
