just breathe

The past few years have been a bit of a blur in the newly minted House of Thornton. I’m sure all of you can imagine the chaos of adopting a non-English-speaking almost-3 year old from Ethiopia, getting engaged a week later, and married 10 weeks after that . . . AND THEN quitting one job and starting a new one. . .makes me tired just thinking about it! ┬áRecently, I’m learning to not think about it, and instead to live in the today. To enjoy what we have in all of it’s chaotic deliciousness. Zach reminds me often that we are in a really, really good place as a family and as individuals. I’m not sure why I rehash the past so much in my mind or let the past aches of pain still creep in and define my current situation. ┬áI’m certainly looking forward to leaning into the present, my present, and moving forward.

Onward and upward!
