"We've got a busy day," says J as he hastily put on his shoes.

I just smile and nod.

This seems to be a daily phrase in my home, and that's not how this household usually rolls.

Up until now, this adventure has been a lot like how I'd imagine sailing - the water being smooth and gentle and predictable.

Like I've said before, we just go with the flow. And it's been superb.

But now...

The winds are changing. And not in a bad way, as change is part of the journey, but in an overwhelming way. It's exciting, scary, and heart pounding, but oh so fun. (But don't think I haven't had my "Holy crap, I have no idea what I'm doing!" moments.)

So, with the spring, old projects are getting a second look and new ones seem to pop up constantly.

Like this craziness - we (kinda) have started our first garden!

Or this one - we have chickens!

Or maybe this one - we are officially the owners/operators of the blueberry farm

And, last but certainly not least, we're hesitantly (and only kinda) moving forward with our dream house.

(And don't you worry your pretty little head - I have many things to say about each of the topics above. I just needed to clear my over-cluttered mind.)

To say that my tiny family has a full plate is an understatement. In fact, I have felt a little overwhelmed lately. But then I remind myself that this is just where we're meant to be. Where we WANT to be. And slowly, things will settle down and come together. Then I can breathe a little again.

Thanks for reading all of my gibberish. I only hope that you stick around to read about our precious blueberry farm...or about how gross (but so darn cute) baby chicks are...
