Tree Farm 2017




  

WE HAVE A TREE!! finally

We usually go tree shopping Thanksgiving weekend, but that just didn't happen this year. Finals, house renovations, and miscellaneous happenings here and there have put a strain on our usual holiday traditions. I would be lying if I said it hasn't made me a little sad these past few weeks. School always has a way of making me feel like I'm missing things in life. But I keep reminding myself that this season of life is temporary. And will all be worth it in the end. At least that's what I keep hearing. Let's hope they are right! ;)

Robs 5th birthday.

Can't believe my sweet boy is FIVE. One of the perks of being in school is that I'm so busy I don't really have time to dwell on how time is flying. Then birthdays come and it hits me all at once. That part sucks. Raw emotion overwhelms me and before I know it, I’m standing in line at Starbucks trying to hold back tears. So maybe the whole school thing isn’t a perk. Instead of being lightly drizzled throughout the year with the sobering reality of time, I’m flooded with it all at once when he blows out yet another candle on this special day. Seriously, no one ever told me how hard this part would be. Ok, totally lying. they did. I just never understood. Not until now.
