I've been out of Kansas nearly the whole month of July. While I've had a few meltdowns and frenzied moments (I started crying when my sunglasses broke--gave the new mascara a good test run), I'm thankful to have had many travel opportunities and know it wouldn't have been possible if I was still working full time.
We are now back from Colorado. Oh, what a glorious state she is! I'm smitten by her beauty, her people (ponytails are permitted, if not encouraged), and the potent sense of adventure. The mountains were a constant reminder that we are small and there's so much transpiring in nature and in us, so much we (I) don't know. In that realization I think to thank you--for reading about this Kansas girl's life of mommyhood and evolving self awareness...my life is not little, but, neither is our world.
