So this is what it feels like to breathe again. We finally sold our house in Kentucky. The relief is palpable, and even more sweet then I imagined it would be. I'll admit that I hesitated to even write this post. The past six months have been the most difficult of my life. We combated challenge after challenge. I felt like every time I would say, "well it may be tough but at least we still have ---fill in the blank---" then that thing would come crumbling down too… as if the universe was against us. We couldn't catch a break.

But it occurs to me that times are a changing, for the better… and it's ok to say that because it's not going to jinx it. We are on our way to picking up the pieces and putting them back into their happy little places.. and maybe I will be even more grateful for the puzzle when this is all said and done.  

It feels so amazing to wake up and be able to really smile, because I almost forgot what really smiling with my whole heart felt like… finally.

and now we can move out of this dump!
