There were few things that were "comfy cozy" about my time in Texas. Family was the biggest comfort, and those dear family members that we left behind in San Antonio, we miss every day! (It stinks having our families so far apart that to choose to be with one side, means being so far away from the other side.)
Aside from having my husbands family, I was out of my element. I was out of my comfort zone, away from my family and friends. Everything that used to bring me comfort was gone. I found a true refuge in blogging and always found such an emotional encouragement when I was able to get all of my thoughts, feelings, and "junk" out and on the screen.
Packing, moving and then getting settled into our new life back in New Jersey has not been easy. At least not easy in the way I thought would be. I had never been a wife here in Jersey. We left the day after we got married. So I never had to juggle my husband and my family. I became a mom down in Texas. I came "home" with a whole new life and needed to figure out how to be this new "me" back home.
It's been 6 months of catching up with deeply missed family. Adjusting to all of the changes of living with family, and little man being loved and adored by the 30 family members that missed that first year of his life. But I can honestly say, there is no place like home. Being surrounded by those that know you in your deepest darkest corners of yourself. The ones that can tell whats wrong just by looking at you. Not having to explain yourself, and being wrapped up in the those that love you the most.
But I've missed this. . . this being able to put it all out there. Maybe it's just how my mind works. But I need this to process things. To sort through the things that get so jumbled in my head.
So with the business of summer coming to an end, I thought it was the perfect time to pick back up where I left off.
I'm still on my quest of Awesomeness :o) being a fabulous wife, amazing mama, and loyal friend
