it's been a year

This weekend was a good one! It was the kind where Eric and I both had a wish list a mile long of events we wanted to go to, but we opted to just stay home, relax and play with our kids! We spent the weekend feeling so grateful that we had the option to enjoy city life, or just chill at home and be content with our people. This weekend was our 1 year mark since saying goodbye to Utah and hello to Arizona. We reflected on the move and how happy we have been with it... sure there have been hard times, even bad times, but the good far out weighs them all! We've learned that attitude makes all the difference and we chose to stay happy and positive even when we didn't want to be, and we survived the trials with a smile on our faces (for the most part ;)) We discovered that we could be more homesick for our friends and family (and greenery... the Arizona landscaping is still growing on me, ha ha!) more than we ever imagined we would be, but our little family has grown closer because of it!

This weekend Mia and I went on a much needed date (to buy her a pink ball cap... She is definitely Eric's daughter to be on the hunt for a ball cap, ha ha! At least it was pink!), we had family game night, ate good food and relaxed as much as possible. I'm so grateful for the time we get to spend together as a family and I'm even more grateful for all the wonderful memories we made together this last year!

Moving's so tough, but so happy to hear it's been a great year for you! We move every three years and I get homesick for EACH PLACE. haha how does that happen!?

According to Kiki said...

Congrats on making it through that first year! I cant imagine missing my family and friends since I've always been in roughly the same area, the area I grew up. Hang in there! At least it's brought the four of you super close!
