choosing to find joy

i have neglected this space over the last little while. it hasn't been intentional but the way life has been lately hasn't really allowed me to sit down at a computer. however i was looking at my blog today and read the little tag line under my blog title 'finding joy in the everyday'.
i knew life would get crazy after micah was born but i wasn't expecting that we would be moving the same month as well! our little family of three hasn't been at home very much at all. we have been staying at our parents places so that clint doesn't have to drive so far for work each day. however, this has put me into a bit of a funk. we haven't been able to find a normal, we haven't been able to get settled and live our life as a wee little family of three.

this month has flown by and i have just been a big basket of stress because our life isn't the way i had pictured it to be. to add to the stress there is still tons of packing to be done since we haven't been home, we move in four days!
i have been disappointed that life isn't going the way i had wanted it to.
all of the above are excuses though.
i haven't been looking at the sweet little joys in each day and the many ways that God is blessing us each day.
so today i choose to change my attitude.
today i choose to find the little joys in my day.
a few little joys from today
.sweet snuggles with my bebe micah.
.being able to get my wedding rings off because my fingers aren't swollen any more.
.the smell of chicken roasting for supper.
.napping while micah napped.
.sweet baby breath.
.iced coffee & ice cream sandwishes.

moving with a newborn

this is what life looks like for us right now
trying to soak up every moment with micah
a crazy messy house because we are moving in two weeks.

apparently we like change to happen all at once. clint got a new job in a town that is much closer to our families, so we jumped at the opportunity. clint has already started his new job so we are staying at his parents place some nights and my mom's some nights so that the commute isn't as long. then we go home for a few days to pack up more stuff. 

it's kinda crazy but soon we will be settled and have a place to call home again.
i am so thankful that micah is such a good baby and sleeps well. trying to keep a routine is a bit difficult but we are making it work.
