jameson has officially started walking … and so my life is over. this is the joke i continuously tell people when they ask how things are going. it’s easy to keep it simple and to how our daughter is doing since so much has happened in these past few months. my mother passed away in february. jameson turned one, and charlie was offered a job at a university in oregon. it was an opportunity we had to check out, so we moved across the country in april. it feels nice to be someplace familar (i grew up in idaho) but it’s also odd to feel homesick for the midwest after living there for only two years.
we are settling in but still in that not-so sweet spot where we’re coming to terms with the fact that we blew up our former lives and now have to pick up the pieces and see where they fit here in this new place. but i’m not complaining. i don’t really have time, i’m too busy chasing this little person around and being constantly shocked by how much she’s starting to feel like an actual human.
