Every week a group of bloggers write for 5 minutes on a single topic and then link up together. For several years Lisa Jo Baker has hosted this writing on her blog. Starting August 8th it is going to be moving. But the spirit of the blogging will continue.
Although I only contribute on a hit and miss basis, I have been in love with the concept of 5 minute Friday, knowing that at least once a week I can come to a place to find a topic that is shared by hundreds of others, and I can delve into writing with very little thinking or planning. Simply what flies off of my fingertips.
If you are interested in participating, make sure to follow the link and check out what other bloggers have posted. And follow us as we make the transition to a new host!
Its hard to finish things.
Sometimes finishing means that you have to leave something behind that you love. Something that you don’t want to leave behind.
We are about ready to finish another adventure.
As part of the military, we go where we are sent. Sometimes that means that we go to someplace fun while my husband is doing a training. And sometimes it means that we move to a place for several years that we really don’t want to live at.
We’ve loved living here.
We moved here in February. It was cold and snowy when we left Delaware. What a relief we felt getting to Mississippi to the sun, the warmth (it was in the 60s-70s!) and the water! But even getting here we knew it would be short lived.
And now, as July finishes up, and October quickly approaches, we prepare ourselves for our next step. To finish this short chapter of our lives.
We look forward to the new chapter. Finishing isn’t always a bad thing.
We are going to miss the water. The beach has been fun to visit and the water warm enough to play in.
I am going to miss the thunder storms. I love thunder storms! And the amount that we get here is far greater than any I have ever experienced.
We will miss the Hard Rock. Silly but my boys just love the “Guitar Restaurant.”
But its okay.
We will soon finish with our life here in Mississippi. But it will only mark the beginning of our life in Saint Louis!
And just as a reminder, the Mystery Hostess party is still going on via Facebook.
We will be playing games and drawing a winner for the Hostess rewards on Wednesday, July 30th. Make sure to check it out and get your order in before Wednesday to qualify for the rewards.
