I don’t think I could love fall more. Sweaters, leaves, apple cider, the Patriots!, cool, crisp, fall mornings, pumpkin spice everything! It’s absolutely my most favorite season. I am beyond excited to experience it in New England again this year!
This summer has definitely been one of transition. I knew it would be, but knowing it would be didn’t really make it any easier. I love being back in New England. I love being able to see my family all the time. At the same time, I desperately miss my wonderful friends and church family. There are days when I’m okay and everything feels okay. Then there are days when it seems like I won’t ever settle back in here and I feel lonely and just plain…sad. Despite having emotional days, I know in my heart and my head that this is the right thing and the best thing…and it really has been a great summer! Some highlights include:
Spending the summer with my buddy (and his two sisters)!
The whole family home for the 4th of July!
3 of the most fabulous women I know - road trippin' it from Ohio to visit!
Seeing my inside-and-out-gorgeous friend, Sandi while she was in NH!
And I know where she gets it - her precious Mama! I love you, Tante Judy!
Finally getting to see John Mayer with some of my favorite guys!
Celebrating with a stunning bride and my dear friend, Gretchen, on her wedding day!
SO wonderful to spend a weekend with life-long college friends!
Family vacation in Lake George, NY.
Lots of family!
Time with my beautiful cousins! They're growing up so quickly!
Being able to see them is a blessing I so appreciate!
I am looking forward to a refreshing and rejuvenating fall. I will be starting a new job in 9 short days! I accepted a position as a live-in nanny in Lexington, MA (as in Lexington & Concord)! I’m excited about really settling in and finding a church. I’m excited to see what the next chapter of the story that my Heavenly Father is writing will hold. He has been so faithful – even in my longing for what I’ve known – I can recognize that. He is good…no matter what.
I realize that what I’ve shared today isn’t exactly in the running for “most upbeat post of all time.” It’s what has been on my heart though! Thanks to those of you that read and have been a support to me this summer. It means more than you know. I can’t wait for the next leg of the journey…
Peace, Love, & Embracing Change,
