Life in Suburbia

Since our move to Texas over 3 years ago, our adventures have taken a more suburban turn. For a home body like me it's perfect - and Houston is big enough that Chris finds activities to satisfy his less-than-suburban desires. But my heart loves these wide open spaces, the pretty flowers planted in neat rows, the colorful pond fountains, the lovely bike trails, and the neighborhood park. I never dreamed we could live in such an idyllic setting.

Time inches like molasses, the sticky brown sweet goop that makes everything better, as we strap the baby into her bike seat and head out for an evening ride. These moments are my fuel - nourishment to be the best mom and wife I can be - memories that will far outweigh any material possessions. Just flipping back through these pictures can ease my anxiety at work and be a reminder that life is so, so good.

Happy Friday friends!
