adventures can be overwhelming

As you know, I just barely arrived at our new little house at Fort Huachuca,

but I left my poor husband again last night.

My mother is flying back to the East coast tomorrow,

so we took the opportunity to drive up to Sedona to visit some family friends

before I take her to Phoenix to the airport tomorrow.


Much like yesterday and the day before,

I’m a little overwhelmed.

I texted Ashley, as I always do, that life seems to be a little too much right now.

There’s too much in flux, too much undetermined, and we’re not settled yet.

It’s a very off sort of feeling.


And yet, at the same time,

I know that once I’ve dropped my mother off, reality will sink in.

This is for real.

I’ve moved to Arizona to start my life with Ryan.

Part of me thinks I’m crazy for selling my belongings,

picking up my little life and my pets from New Hampshire

and traveling to a whole different area in the US to be with the one I love.


As overwhelming and terrifying as this is,

I’m excited, as well.

There are so, so many adventures to be had, so many pictures to be taken,

so many memories to be created

and so much life yet to be lived.


All of these things make the stress and the moving worth it.


Plus, come tomorrow morning, I’ll be back at Fort Huachuca with my man!

We’re looking at furniture this weekend,

cooking yummy meals in our new kitchen and hosting some new friends!


I’ll be sure to document Sedona tomorrow because it is stunning.

Until then, here’s to living in the moment and loving those crazy adventures.
