all the celebrations + week(s) in review

wow. the last few weeks have been filled with many reasons to celebrate. however, if I had written this post a week ago, the sentiment would have been a bit different.

I was in a bit of a funk for a few days, which was kicked off with some bad news about our house and then some more bad news about our house. coupling this with feelings of being overwhelmed with all of the changes going on in my life and continued stress at work and you get a big mess. after a mini-breakdown and some release via many tears, I realized a few things 1) I had been focusing on those few negative things versus looking at the bigger picture of all of the amazingness that is happening in my life right now, 2) I’m not in this alone and I have an amazing husband and support system of many friends and family and, 3) it’s okay if things don’t go exactly as I had planned — in fact, they rarely will.

as I reflect on the past two weeks, I am again reminded of the rollercoaster of emotions I experienced but also all of the good and successes and cause for celebration — because there is so much for which to be grateful.
