For me, what first started as a passion project and a hobby has over time become a proud privilege and honor. I am the keeper of the memories, the storyteller of my family’s history, and yes, I am responsible for its passing on to others. I capture the stories of my family members, the experiences that we have together, our thoughts during each mundane day, and I pride myself in this job of keeping my family’s memories alive.
Why do I feel like every time I get on here to review one of my months I always feel so overwhelmed about how the month went. The last recap I did I felt so busy, so full of different events and activities, and mostly I just felt like I had so much change going on in my life. But then this past month happens, and I feel like everything is just 10x more overwhelming and busy and full of change. Is this just adult life now?
I’ve been having lots of different emotions these last couple of days. We sold our house—and I’m happy about it, but I’m also really sad about it. I’m happy because selling our house in a matter of two months is a really big accomplishment. We were able to make a teeny tiny bit of profit even though we’ve only been living there for a little over a year. And we were able to move our life to Indiana fully and finally start our adventure here. But I’m sad because I loved that house. I have tons of memories and life changing events that happened in that house. And I’m also scared for our future in Indiana a little bit.
This is big news! It’s really exciting, it’s really scary, and it's going to be a really big change. But we are so pumped for this. I mentioned in my 2019 post that we would have some exciting changes to announce and this was one of them. If you’ve been reading my blog for the past year or so, you’ll know that firstly I haven’t been posting like AT. ALL. Secondly, that I haven’t been happy lately. And finally, that I constantly say “I hate my job.” Well this is us taking steps to fix these problems.
