52 self portraits // a thousand threads
Over the past couple of weeks, my heart rate has been on permanent high… running from meeting to meeting, fingers crossed, wishing and hoping…

I’m full of nervous energy with one more big transition to come, but within it… I’m also beginning to eek out a sliver of peace.

I hesitate to say it out loud… but I can almost feel us beginning to turn a corner. One that’s been just out of reach for a very long time.

2014 was a very hard year for us. In some ways, it was the most rewarding year we’ve had, but it was also a struggle.

After a year of what ifs and maybes, I’m so ready for that corner and the wide world ahead that it hurts. Just that sliver of peace on its own is much more than I’ve had in some time.

    Congratulations, lady–what wonderful news! Your honesty about how bittersweet and thrilling these changes are hit me like 1,000 lbs. We’ve got some huge changes coming, and I’m totally overwhelmed by them all, but we have no choice to move forward!

    I’m so happy to hear that you’re starting to do what you really want to do. Not everyone has courage to do what you did. You guys look adorable. Congratulations on the new job!
