You Say Goodbye, I Say Hello

Hello again...

Life has been hectic this year!  So much has happened in a relatively small amount of time, and I don't really know where to begin.  Several of our friends moved away, had babies (or are still expecting some!), and sadly there were a couple of divorces too.

While I know two of those things will happen to us eventually, I couldn't help but feel a pang of "outsickness" as friends disappeared one by one.  I love the feeling of packing up and heading off into the unknown, and I fully intend to "have a midlife crisis" and live overseas at some point when we have children, just like my parents did when I was younger.

In the meantime, however, we're enjoying our life here.  We love our home, and we have an amazing family of neighbors.  I've been doing really well at work too--I've had TWO raises in the past 6 months, which is supremely gratifying :) 

I haven't had much time for sewing lately (soon, soon!), but I somehow found time to become a cooking-gardening-pickling-juicing, laundry-detergent-making, cloth-napkin-using lunatic ever since we started eating clean last summer.  I'll have to update you on all my random kitchen experiments next time. :) 

 I hope everyone is enjoying the summer!
