radio silence

Just wanted to break the silence over here..

We've been keeping to ourselves, sort of unintentionally but maybe a little bit intentionally. So much has happened in such a short time and I've felt an over load of mixed emotions. Good emotions, most of which I will share shortly, promise.

I've been struggling to find the balance with social media (what else is new), which is what causes me to take random breaks from blogging and Instagram at times. Somedays I want to throw all the technologies away and live in the woods, alone with my boys, with no influence of the world in my life. But that is not reality. And there is so much beauty in all of it when used properly! It's not the platforms that are the problem, it's me. It's about balance.

We've been enjoying long walks to the park and mending a few colds going around the house. Wesley and I went to California over Halloween and had fun visiting his Godmother who recently got engaged. I finally purchased some books on my Kindle and have been reading like crazy. Some that I've read before, but mostly new ones that have been on my list forever. Darren and I both celebrated birthdays. I've started watching Call the Midwife on Netflix and I'm in love with all of the feelings it brings back from my own birth experience. The temps have dropped significantly and it's finally feeling like winter in Arizona. 

We will be leaving next week to spend Thanksgiving with Darren's family in Southern Utah. We haven't seen them in a couple of months and can hardly wait to get up there. There is so much I am grateful for and I am excited to celebrate those things.

Life is slow, but good, exactly the way I like it.
