Life. It can change in an instant. It is mysterious and full of endless choices. It can be challenging and demanding. But life is wonderful. I have to remind myself of that every now and then. Justin and I thought we had our life planned out for the next five years, funny, I know. Because just when you think you've got it all outlined, things change. I can't go into much detail, but we found out this week, that at the end of June we will be leaving Boston.
We were both filled with such mixed emotions. We were planning on, and were emotionally attached to the idea of staying here and "starting our lives." I was kind of struggling with the idea of moving again because I was finally feeling comfortable here, and it was starting to feel like home. However, after a while I started to contemplate about what home really was. I realized that my home will always be wherever Justin is, and that everything else will work itself out (at the expense of Justin's nerves ;) ).
So, Justin and I have decided to enjoy our last few months here in Boston. I feel like I appreciate each day a little bit more. I look for more beauty around me, I try to be a bit more social because I know I will probably never see the people I know here ever again. In a way, I feel like I am living life more fully. My entire perspective of my daily life has been transformed, and I am grateful.

Out and about, enjoying nature!

Love this Guy!
