Thank you so much for all your messages today. I appreciate them more than you know.
Pigtail and I crossed the country today on the five hour flight + one hour drive that constitutes the path to our lake house. We did okay. At seven months, Pigtail is more aware and curious which means she isn't as content in her car seat for hours and hours anymore.
But all things considered, we arrived at my favorite place intact. A very gracious and lovely woman in the seat beside me on the airplane helped our travel attitude tremendously. In the past few days, I have become so aware of small kindnesses.
Later this week, I'll make a very brief journey to Oklahoma to honor Pru.
Then I'll be back at the lake with 12 friends to celebrate a bride-to-be for the Memorial Day weekend. Things will be - are - hectic and emotional.
I have no idea what this means for HH for the next week or so. Maybe it will be a little sparse over here. Maybe there will be an outpouring of my written emotion. I thrive on consistency, but I can't promise that right now. I think I'll take the opportunity to re-post some of my favorite things from my former blog that I've been wanting to get over here anyway.
For you, I hope that these early days of summer are more fun than frazzled. More sunny than weathered. Full of anticipation and hope.
For me, even in the sadness there is so, so much joy.
