It may be working... but that isn't the point of this discussion.
What struck me while roaming around the amazing world of Pinterest is how very, very small the world is now that we are all connected through the internet.
You see, on Pinterest you create "boards" where you "pin" things that interest you - things that you want to remember. One of the boards I created was, surprise, "green living". When I searched Pinterest for green living ideas I stumbled upon MYSELF.
I cannot express how extremely weird that was.
Someone had read my blog about homemade bodywash, pinned it, and it had passed through the Pinternet world.
I wondered why I had gotten two comments on it lately!
In some ways it made me want to remove my children's names from my blog and quit all discussions about where we live. I understand now why my sister quit blogging when she had her daughter! But we are out there already, and I cannot quit now. Some moments the words get stuck, but it is impossible to keep them contained completely. I need to write. So we stay...
Right now - these pictures from a few days before we left Missouri have been begging to come out and play.
This dew covered spiderweb is what started the adventure.
This field of beauty in the midst of construction was only one street over - just a direction we had never ventured.
Hard at work
Enjoying the sunshine
And sharing nicely, at peace with the world around them.
We weren't thrilled to be in MO. The 4 months there were a stressful, crazy, random. But, we were together, learning, and, I hope, remembering to enjoy the beauty around us.
