Moving and dreaming

Normally when we are about to move I start dreaming - I have no ability to keep my dreaming in. I'm not sure if it's being busy or working or moving with a baby but I'm struggling to figure out how to imagine the new house with decorations. Usually my mind is swirling with ideas and dreams  but for this new house I can't quite imagine it. I think it's because it's such a nice house and I'm not used to that! Usually it's a make do, situation but this time, it's a real improvement and actually really nice. I'm not used to that! But there are a couple of pins that have caught my eye on Pinterest to do with a few key areas - my new desk and the entryway staircase! 

First up: the desk space! It's right between the Kitchen and Family room, next to the kitchen eating area.

Baby A is 13 months, woot

Mama Blogger

Mama Blogger. These words seem to me a juxtaposition. 

Blogger - someone who writes, who creates, who tells stories, who uses words to create. 
Mama - someone who has and raises children. 

Mama Blogger - I'm not sure how to be both. Really I'm not sure how to find the time for to do both. I keep choosing Mama, which I know is the right choice, but I miss blogging. I miss creating with words. I miss reliving life in the retelling. I miss chronicling the small and insignificant things, I miss telling the stories of my life and what God has done, I miss rereading it all and reliving it. 

This month I start a new job. This month we pack up our house of 4 years and move (and we don't know where). This month was our 6 year wedding anniversary. This month I turned 33. This month I still need to keep my household running, my three homestay students and my husband and baby fed, and my daughter taken care of. This month I am extremely thankful for community and family.
