As I was sitting inside our house today wearing flannel PJs, a sweatshirt, a hat, and a blanket, I came to the realization that our life is WAY different than it was one year ago. I decided to document the major difference. Let's all take a look . . .
NOW- those little dots on Saturday and Wednesday are the icon for SNOW, people. Whoa. That big 0 on Thursday is also really staring me in the face.
THEN-The crazy part is that I would have (along with most South Alabamians) considered THIS to be a pretty cold week in Atmore. Little did I know we were moving to the arctic tundra!
SO, as I type this, snow is steadily falling outside. It's beautiful. Did I mention that there is still snow on the ground from LAST week? I LOVE IT! I am so thrilled that the Lord blessed us with SO many things over the past year. We added a boy to our brood, we moved across the country, we have met a SLEW of amazing people, and we have all been healthy. What more could I want? Do I miss our friends (YL, church, work, etc.) in Atmore? Of course! Will I be BEGGING for Atmore temps come March? Probably. Am I thrilled beyond belief that God put us here in Manhattan? ABSOLUTELY! What a difference a year makes.
