That gorgeousness up there was taken this morning at 945am.  This is what mid-October looks like in my backyard.  Today is perfection.  50 degrees and full sunshine!  You really can't get much better for this time of year.  

Normally i'm all in a hurry after training.  In a hurry to get in my second breakfast, go through my email and start ticking things off my daily list.  Not today.  I got back in the house, looked out my window and literally gasped.  I changed, grabbed a cup of coffee and headed straight for our outside bed to soak up some rays.  It felt so good to be outside.  The sun on my face, feeling the warmth, and being able to have a few moments to reflect on everything going on in my life.

Owning this home, with this beautiful view really makes me feel grateful for all that we have accomplished in our lives.  T and I have worked hard for everything we have.  Although I no longer have a career out of the home I do my share running the house and running the day-to-day of my kids life.  T works hard to keep the wheels oiled for all of this.  For that I am so grateful for him and everything he does for us.  

I don't take any of this for granted.  Actually I don't take any of what I have or experienced for granted.  **need to be careful here before I spiral off on a tagent**

T and I had a dream of what we wanted down the road in our life together.  To reach that dream sooner then expected has been astounding to us.  Somedays it feels like we somehow inserted ourselves into our dream and are waiting to get back to reality.  But most days I realize its all real and that dreams can come true.  We have more dreams on our list waiting to become reality, and that I am so excited for.  These dreams are passions and as I've mentioned before that is a priority for me, to do things I am passionate about.  Focus on it and make it happen, there's no time for "later" in my book.  

Dream big.  Dream huge.  Work hard.  Focus on the ultimate goal and do what you need to do.  If you want something make it happen.  It may take 1 year, 3 years, 10 years but you can make your dream a reality.  We've made one come true and look forward to making more come true.
