a life that’s rich, and growing richer

[Heads up, folks. This is honest. And may not cast me in the best light. You decide. I do think though, that these feelings and concerns over one's worth and usefulness aren't exclusive to me, if we're all being completely honest. (Right?!) So I'm sharing. That's why. Because I don't think I'm the only one.] If you haven't noticed, there's been a whole let less writing happening on this corner...

Living in Boxes

So Chris and I are living out of boxes. Boxes on boxes in rooms closed away so we pretend we don't see them. We moved about two months ago. And still, there are boxes. It may sound crazy, but this is our life. We are busy and we are full. I say "no" to plenty, and I'm pretty in tune with my boundaries, but this is still our crazy, living-outta-boxes...
