Monday, February 6


Happy Super Bowl Monday! If you're from Indiana than it's been nothing but Super Bowl for the past few weeks. There has been a lot of buzz going on and a lot of new visitors to the state. I headed downtown on Friday to join in some of the festivities and it was amazing how much the city has done for this event. There were so many people there and it was just really cool to experience it.

On another note, my mom also had a birthday this weekend. Yay for her! We gathered together and celebrated. My brother was also in town and the five of us had a wonderful time being a family. It was so great to be with them.

This is a big year for my family. There are two weddings and two new people joining the original five. It will be a lot of change. But change is good, right? That's what they say. It's good but not necessarily natural or always easy.  Change usually excites me but I am particularly bad at change when it comes to my family. It can sometimes be hard for me to adjust. I can be kind of stubborn.

Change can make us better. It causes us to stretch and grow. It eventually causes us to look outside ourselves and see a bigger picture. I am excited about this change in our family. I am looking forward to adding a sister and a husband. To adding new traditions and new norms. Change is good. This is good.
