A Life?

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.


  1. Hooray for Having a Life! Keep at it! xxx

  2. That is very true! Most of my loved ones live with me, or are close by. Not all, but most. After being pretty much home bound for the past 5 years, I want to get out, see, and do! It isn't easy for me to make friends. I only hang around with my family, and don't go to the places you would commonly make friends at,(bars, clubs, or church). I'm feel lucky to have made some great online friends, though! :D

    It would be nice to socialize, I do miss it sometimes!

    I am excited to hear about your adventures around your area!

  3. I'm so glad that you're close to loved ones. I've always loved traveling and experiencing new places, but that's been so much more difficult with my migraines. I've also always treasured being near loved ones, and we're finally back near our's. It's so exciting that we both have such a great opportunity to be close to loved ones. Blessings.
