With all the craziness of the past several weeks behind us, my husband and I are trying to find our footing here in St. Louis. In addition to his entire family being here he has a few good long-time friends. We've started making plans with these people and are even starting to think about fun stuff we would like to do in the area.
It is almost as if we were starting to have a life. We've made plans for this weekend and next weekend. The weekend after that I'm going to be in Minnesota... It's sort of pleasant to think about having a life for the first time in about 3 years. To have people we know and like around us with whom we can make plans and hang out.
Say what you will about travel, seeing the country and experiencing new places, but for me, there is nothing better than being close to loved ones.
