Okay...so I have *not* been around in quite some time! Blogging has fallen by the wayside, as it has many times in the past, but now I honestly feel like I need to get back to my roots.

Over the last five months I've set out on a journey that I wasn't really intending to be on. And during this journey I've had to confront head on two of the dirtiest words that kept coming at me.

So I won't even begin to beat around the bush when it comes to my absence from blogging. After the events of our remodel last winter, I was a bit beaten down. Things got off schedule, I got irritated, and have yet to finish the blogs about the remodel. One day...one day those will get finished. But until that time...I think it's okay if I move on to other things that are weighing on me. That's what this is all about, right?

This blog post is about 5 days later than I initially planned for it to happen...and I wish that I had a good excuse. I don't really have a good one per se...so let me tell you some that I've come up with.

Another week...another mess. Wait...that sounds bad. Another week...and a helluva lot of progress!

Last week may have seemed like a whirlwind, but it was just a taste of what this week had in store for us. Getting ready for the actual construction to start proved to be challenging, and even a bit tense for us at times.

We've been in our home for almost a year and a half...and we've finally reached the point where we are ready to start the remodel that we've been planning since we first walked in.

I've been thinking lately about how much our lives have changed over the course of one year. To some that may be a scary thing, while others thrive on change and the challenges that come with it. I like to think that I fall somewhere in the middle of those two. But I guess that depends on the day.

This morning while sitting in my chair, tears are rolling down my face. Saying goodbye to a friend, or a loved one is never easy, and it makes it even harder when they've given you nothing but unconditional love since the day you met.

With all that has been going on over the last week, I'm happy to say that there have been some bright spots as well. And I'm so excited to share with you what is happening right now here! Are you ready?!?

We've had an unusually warm winter, minus the 3 inches of snow that we got at the end of November. And because of the warmth, new life is popping up around me everywhere I look. The ornamental fruit trees are in full bloom, the lilac bush in our backyard is budding out, as well as some of the trees around the property. But as anyone with a farm knows, with life...comes loss.

Secrets...they can be large, small, harmless or hurtful...and we all have them. Today I'm going to confess a few things to you...some of them I'm not proud of...while others, I guess you do what you have to do. But don't get me wrong, not all secrets are horrible, deep and dark. They come in all shapes and sizes.
