oh how i love long weekends - i get to have all my favourite people home together. i've turned into such a homebody (winter?!!) and when everyone is here at home it is like a big deep breath in. i'm noticing how i have changed from one who used to like distracting myself and escaping the house to really sinking into being home...mess and imperfection and empty fridge and all!
i'm cherishing our time together, this childhood of theirs, this time in our life.
it's been a stressful few months since some visa dramas came up (for the kids and i) last year resulting in lawyers, a lot of uncertainty and now the need for us to travel back to australia to sort it out. of course i am excited and grateful for the opportunity to go 'home' but not loving the anxiety i'm feeling mixed in with it about leaving 'home'. we will likely be there for several weeks and be missing our daddy-o a lot...probably not missing the cold weather...but who knows..?!!
so stay tuned for our next adventures...because if i can be sure of anything it is that life is a big adventure indeed.
until then we are getting in all the snuggles we possibly can and feeling happy for right here right now.
