Oh, the Places You Will Go

There is a stamp from a set in the current catalogue that says “Oh, the places you will go.” With each phase of life, I am experiencing that exact saying on so many different levels. For me, this saying doesn’t just refer to the physical places I will go, but also the emotional and spiritual places along this journey… Life is definitely a journey.

It has been a while since I have posted anything, and that’s simply because I have been going places! :) The last 6 months have brought many changes to our family. Our second daughter Samantha moved to Australia, our oldest daughter had a baby boy (making us grandparents for the first time), and Edgar and I traveled across the world to go visit Samantha and her husband Richie (a super big achievement for this mama who doesn’t like to fly). And this weekend, our “baby” Aaron just turned 20! Honestly, it’s sometimes a lot to process.

Here is an updated picture of Huxley Gordon who just turned 3 months. The happiest baby you will ever meet.Huxley Gordon 12We recently returned home from our visit with Samantha and Richie.
