Life is Change
Just like that, the flowers are all blooming and it looks and feels like summer. I heard the crickets this past week. I see dragonflies and butterflies everywhere I go. Busy busy busy! Speaking of busy, we are about a month away from the wedding.
My son bought his train tickets to come home in July and I've been scheduling so many tasks, ordering a tent rental and all sorts of stuff. I have never held a deep abiding love for a date book like I do these days. I grab it, flip through and pencil in. Phone apps are not the same and never will be--call me an old fashion paper and pen kind of gal. Sure I have phone numbers in the phone but there is something about writing in on the date a business name and phone number and seeing it right there on the page.
RSVP cards are trickling in for the reception (not hosted at my house, phew!). I'm estimating how much food for a Sunday luncheon (at my house) with an unknown amount of guests. (tricky but doable in my mind!)
Most of all, I am excited to see our families traveling to celebrate with us as well as our new son in law to be's families traveling here. I love knowing these two kids are loved by so many family and friends. That is what it is all about!
I have bittersweet thoughts about the Santa Barbara move but overall I'm excited for them and their grand new adventure as a couple. Letting go letting go letting go. What has helped the most is reflecting on my marriage and having my husband through our decades together. I want for my kids what I have.
So back to Santa Barbara, I have snail mail, email, phone calls and maybe I'll dip my toes into Skype and Google hangouts. Most of all are the planned visits back and forth. Even though my husband's job responsibilities have increased I have an epic trip planned for 2016.
Of course I am trying to talk my daughter into instagram and I'm still waiting to see if she will make an account.
Daydreaming is the best part of all of this.
Life is change. Life is good. Change is good? (that's a stretch but stick with me while I'm riding high on positive thinking)
PSST: I have lots going on this weekend with TWO bridal showers to attend so the weekend post will probably be posted on Monday.
Have a wonderful weekend and see you all on Monday!
