It’s extremely easy to become flustered when trying to fit too much into a limited amount of time.
These past few weeks have been extremely crazy with all of my freelance work and full-time job. Poor Jason has felt every minute of my lack of sleep and constant writing.
That feeling of being overwhelmed has got the best of me from time to time.
With that said, I love writing all of these articles because it’s pretty neat to have my name printed in three different states. That is what keeps me going, that is why I say yes everytime I am asked to write an article. This is my passion …
It also feels great to be able to add money to the pot in supporting us with all of this work I have accumulated.
May 1 we arrived at our new home … some days it feels like we just arrived yesterday.
I’ve made a big move before, a big move that ended up not being right for me. Although this has been hard, mostly financially, I know deep down that this is what Jason and I needed.
When you surround yourself with positive people only good things happen.
I still struggle with missing my family. It hits me the hardest on my days off, days that Jason is working and I am home. It’s different when you can’t jump in the car and arrive at Mom and Dad’s house a few minutes later. It also hits when pictures of my nephews are posted or shared … they grow up so fast!
It’s weird, I really don’t miss Fort Myers, I miss my family and friends.
I miss my afternoon lunches with a great friend and her kiddos. I miss the surprise visits at work from another great friend. I also miss the best co-worker a girl can ask for, I miss her everyday I walk into the building of my new job.
I don’t miss the area of Fort Myers though because Jason and I found a new beauty, one that leaves us both in awe all the time. Tennessee is our playground, well Virginia and Kentucky too.
I love the hills and mountains, the rugged trails we hike and the beauty we find in the lakes, rivers, streams and waterfalls.
I had the opportunity to do an assignment out on the South Holston Lake in Virginia a few weeks back.
As I sat on the police boat and took in the surroundings I found peace, which I often do now when I’m out in nature. The smell of the lake, which brought me back to when my Grandpa took us out on the water, was incredible. I couldn’t get enough of it.
The surroundings also grabbed my attention. A lake is much different than the Gulf of Mexico.
This journey of ours has taught me a lot in such a short amount of time. This journey has brought me closer to nature. This journey has shown me over and over again why Jason is in my life.
I know I have said it plenty of times before, but Jason is a wonderful person to have by your side. He is patient with me when I know I can be a pain in the butt.
Almost four years … it blows me away with how well he knows me, how he has taken the time to understand me. When I think of him, of us, I always find myself smiling. It’s wonderful to have someone who only wants the best for you in your life.
Jason has shown me a new beauty, one that will always be a part of my life.
