"Limbo Land"

I am more than ready for the next chapter of my life to unfold. I feel like I have been living in "limbo land" for an endless amount of time. While my husband is slogging away at depot in Regina and I have been renting a small room in my parent's home. All our worldly belongings are in a storage unit and have been there for nearly two years. We did own a home for a period of time but sold it when the market was red hot and traveled around the world for 8 months. It was the most life changing decision we ever made...... aside from choosing to have a baby. Now that trip is nicely tucked away in photo albums after hours of uploading and editing and our daughter Amelia has stolen the limelight. She has been my constant companion and roommate since he left for his training six months ago. I don't know how I would have coped in my husband's absence if I didn't have a sweet, cuddly baby consuming my every waking moment. As delightful as the past six months have been - visiting Heidi and Annabelle in Norway for five weeks, a week long road trip on Vancouver Island, and lots of time at the Lake - I can't wait to have my husband back in my arms and in our life. I am also ready to have my own home again - someplace to let loose and not worry about being in any one's way. That being said, my husband graduates in a mere 23 days and we still have not clue where we are going to be posted to. I would love to know where we are going so that I can search for a home and learn about our community. Instead, I have been wiling away the days singing to my baby, scrapbooking when the inspiration hits and enduring sleep deprivation. I need to focus on being content. I really have so much to be thankful for - my family, a healthy baby, an incredibly supportive community of friends and a husband that loves me.

This is an old picture but it makes my heart happy so I thought I would share it with you.
