Every tree limb overhead seems to sit and wait, while every step you take becomes a twist of fate.
Up on the watershed, standing at the fork in the road...

My Blog Created Global Change!

Ok, well not global change per se. But after posting that an unfavorite thing is when favorite bloggers return home from ET and stop posting often enough for my liking - THEY ALL updated their blogs. Still not naming names but a large handful of the best of the best posted awesome updates today. Repleat with photos.

I realize that many families with children excuse these bloggers for being overwhelmed with new parenthood, wanting more anonymity, whatever whatever.

But I don't have kids and I rely on these bloggers to keep time moving forward for me. They provide inspiration, answers to questions, hope, excitement, and instill belief. The good, the bad, or the ugly, if you have brought us into your lives already we want more when you get home. Yes, it I feel entitled to your life. That's what you get for starting a blog! ;)



  1. I LOVE the traveling stories!! As we get closer to travel, I am soaking up every bit of info I can get!!!

  2. It was very important to me to blog as we went through the whole process. I immediately posted our in-country activities because I knew how much I depended on others' stories to carry me through. I get it.

    I really do.
