my silver lining

…”i don’t know if I’m scared of dying but I’m scared of living too fast, too slow
regret, remorse, hold on, oh no I’ve got to go
there’s no starting over, no new beginnings, time races on
and you’ve just gotta keep on keeping on”…


these lyrics sing loud through my ears and my mind lately

it’s officially been two years since we moved to asheville

and one month since we moved into our new castle home

our third home in two years

it’s no doubt that we move more often than the average person

from city to city

from house to house….

when i was pregnant with Lily i worried so much about settling down wanting to provide a permanent home for her

since she was born, our life has been the total opposite from what i thought it would be

she will be eight years old in november and she is now living in her sixth home

i often wonder how that will affect her as she grows

all these moves

all these homes…

will it turn her into the always moving gypsy that i am?

will she be the opposite and live in one home forever as an adult?

however it will affect her, i hope that at least we have shown her that you can set up home anywhere

as long as we’re together nothing else matters

no matter where we are

ps- my silver lining is the title of the song by first aid kit

we ended september with family
