I'm Alive, I'm Alive

covered in dust and newspaper ink, tired of smelling cardboard, feeling overwhelmed by the lack of space and time there is to organize my life right now...but it is all good.

Why...I can see the future. I am experiencing the now. I went for a run today in my new neighborhood. Steve and I took the kids for a bike ride and weren't afraid of a busy road. I have cooked dinners in my kitchen and have decorated the dining room. My scrappy stuff just got unpacked.

We are living with my in-laws, who have been amazing. They are trying to make us feel like this is our house. Steve and I look forward to completely moving in soon, but also know that our kids are getting precious time with Nana and Grandpa. Nathan beams everyday when he sees her.

Yes, it is tight right now. There is a lot of stuff to be done. But it is all good.

Even the DH and I are making our way through exhaustion and stress...taking time to talk about all of our grand plans. Connecting over the life we have built.

Brings me to this layout. Steven and I banter. A lot. We have a back and forth that is teasing, jabbing, and bickering. It can turn into more, but for the most part it helps us burn off steam.

Our family has this thing where we compare the state of affairs to the weather. Is is sunny and bright or partly cloudy? Stormy means there was fight. It is a cute thing that sisters in laws and mothers say to figure out things.

It calls for a layout. I decided to use some weather elements to go with the theme!

So things are pretty sunny right now, a light's to hoping they stay that way!
