You Guys, it's been a year... well over a year if we're keeping count.
Over a year that our little family of four has been in Maryland, out of Mexico and fully engrossed in life here. It's crazy to think we're that far in... into this life as we know it, because that's really how it has become. Life here has become so familiar. The day to day ebbs and flows so smoothly and sometimes I feel like I need to pinch myself to make sure it's all real.
In a phrase... it's just so good.
The kids have transitioned beautifully and love their life here... their friends (which came so easily), their schools, having their Grandparents just down the road, and their neighborhood.
I mean, I didn't know this type of community was even real; a step out of your front door, kids running around outside on the cul de sac, grownups having a beer and talking about life, people who check your mail and water your plants when you're gone, walk your kid home from school when something comes up, hold your baby at the last minute while you run to the store, hilarious texts when things get tough and you need support... kind of neighborhood.
It's God's love in the day to day... lived out with your next door neighbor and it's awesome. There is so much joy in just doing life with the people around you.
This has been, by far, the greatest blessing we've experienced since moving here. And there are still so many more that we are beyond grateful for.
Maryland is beautiful and we have loved getting to experience all it has to offer, the water, the trees, hiking, crabbing, the snow, the fall, all of it.
As the year continues, I'm excited to see this blog evolve and change as I become more and more of a Marylander:)
