Here we are again trying to get a blog going. It’s funny because I think about making this blog a real thing but I just never put myself out there. So afraid to have people think I am fake or trying too hard. Today is the day, letting those fears drop. I also started a lot of other things today. For example, I have worked for the second day and a row. I am sure you are thinking wow two days big deal. I know its actually hilarious to see myself type that. The thing is I borderline the “not fat but not skinny” after kids. I care but I don’t want to do the work. Well, that is over….. big time. I am coming to an age that they call “middle age”. In my head, it’s now or never and it is only going to get harder if I don’t start now. I lost a baby in January (more on that later). It wakes you up!
The alarms are ringing. A lot of alarms! I feel like there has been a huge awareness lately to how short life is. I have so many dreams and goals I still want to do. I want to die trying to live the best life. I am not talking about things and vacations, I am talking about daily life. I want to live the best life daily, in normal things. I am so tired of feeling tired. I want life-giving conversations. Slow evenings with the husband. I want to enjoy my kids discovering this big beautiful world. I want to love people and make them feel special just the way they are. I want to walk in daily gratitude, I want to be looking for ways to serve around me.
We are still living north and loving it. It has been a huge change but overall I think for the better. Besides missing friends and loved ones.
The fun news for May so far is my mother-in-love is moving here in two weeks. I am so excited. She is amazing and I can’t wait for my kids to have family here with them. Hoping the father-in-love will also join us eventually.
Its been an amazing winter, but so excited to have summer.
The summer liv list (which I am sure I will be adding to) :
- Camping in Norway (near the beach)
- Stand up paddle boarding in the lake
- Lots of bike rides
- Plants some flowers with the girls
- Lots of ice cream
- Picking flowers and seeing if we can paint them
- Finally, get Majkens US passport
- Weekend trip to Stockholm
- Go to museums near us
Do you have an summer plans? We also have a lot of house projects we need to get done.
