It's been awhile since there's been a post on this blog, but there's a good reason: We bought a house closer to D.C. and have spent the last few months moving ourselves into it and making it our home. While an exhausting, all-consuming and sometimes stressful process (what move isn't?), it has also been somewhat freeing--especially in going through and giving away a bunch of stuff that we had accumlated but don't need or don't use. And while it was sad to leave friends and a space we knew well, we were reminded of the gift and joy of being a family; one of my kids commented how wonderful it is that "we get to take each other with us no matter where we live." Amen.
