So much has changed in the last year, we are now homeowners for the first time, Annabella is in preschool, and we have made so many wonderful friends here. Of course, we still occasionally look back and miss our friends and family 'up North' too! I suppose I am feeling both wistful for what has past and hopeful for what is to come.
These events that shape our lives force us to stop and take stock. I am so happy to have what I do, and that I am so lucky to have my small family here with me safe and sound. It is something I often take for granted - but today on my daughters birthday I am reminded and awed by all I have been blessed with.
