(No longer) Waiting for my new life to begin...

Today, my family woke up in bedrooms on the same floor, with only a bathroom separating us. We ate breakfast at an outdoor table on a screened-in porch, sipped coffee and caught up on the news while the boys biked in the driveway. We put the dog on a leash and the boys on their bikes and walked to the park where it is a perfect 77 degrees with a cool breeze. This, dear friends, is family paradise. We do not deserve it, and we haven't earned it, but we are definitely grateful.

Soon, once we unpack our worldly possessions and locate the strangely absent silverware drawer, we'll make up for all the hospitality we've neglected to offer, and celebrate our joy and space with you.

It's so good to be home.
