Would you swap this month, for another year?

July 2010… we went on vacation.

Four years later, we’re up working until all hours of the night getting ready to open our new store called “Sunflower.”

Would I swap out this month, for July 2010?

[Back to my easy, uncomplicated life?]

Not a chance.

July 2014 finds me in the midst of complete chaos, yet so many things have made my life richer than it was when life was easy.

  • I love my family more than ever
  • I’m getting ready to work with one of the most talented women I know
  • We’ve recently found kindred spirits who are on a parallel wild-ride with us
  • Our little house can be cleaned up in a jiffy, as opposed to a day
  • The weeds in my yard cannot be seen from the street

We could be at the beach this week.

[But then we’d have to come back to real life anyway.]

I realized the other day, that I’m actually enjoying my real life and not living for vacation anymore.

I’m not sure how or when this happened, but I will take it! I count it as just another one of the many blessings I’ve received since July 2010 when we WERE on vacation — the vacation that inspired this painting.
