As I sit here in our New England home, 1,500 miles away from 'real' home (or where we had always known home to be), I might not feel completely at home, but I am definitely at peace being surrounded by all of my loves.

I hope to look back on our time in Massachusetts as a shared adventure between Mike and I - the two of us out on our own. We were itching for a change and jumped at it the minute the opportunity became available to us. I hope we're always able to do that - wherever we are in life.

I'm not talking just about constantly relocating to a new place, but in all types of opportunities. I hope we're always able to be open to and embrace change... even with the potential slight discomfort it might cause.
While I'll never regret our decision to move here - it already has brought me clarity in so many ways - sometimes I think about how it would be different if we welcomed Emma into our Fairway home - would our experience with her be somehow different? Easier because we had the convenience (and help) from our families? Maybe. Easier because of the contentment and comfort we felt in our old home and our own life? Perhaps.
The only regret I'll have about our time here is if we don't live it to its fullest. While it can be tempting to look forward to moving back home to the comfort of familiar territory (whenever that might be...), I'm determined to "do it right" while we're here. With Baby Emma in tow, we're going to continue to travel and explore - to new places, new experiences and new friends.
