This is why people blog, YOU are why people blog. After my last post I received so many sweet emails and Facebook messages and supportive comments to let me know that I am not alone and that I am loved. It’s nice to feel like there is a community surrounding you, because often nowadays your community is widespread and far flung. Thank you for that, because it made being overwhelmed so much easier and helped me ease back into being whelmed (“I know you can be overwhelmed, and I know you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?”)
We arrived in Neuremberg, Germany yesterday and since Wayne and I had many many hours of traveling time together we were able to talk a lot (more on that later). We made a decision that we need to stop focusing on our plans so much and get back to really enjoying our present. What better time to start again that than in Germany?!
It’s also important for me to remember that I have accomplished a great deal in the past two months and that the remaining items on my long to-do list are not a reflection of how productive and awesome things have been. For example, check out this sweet compost bin that my mom and I built while she was here last.
