This post is certainly bittersweet, a term I find myself using quite a bit nowadays. Autumn has had a connection to and affinity for music over the past months as we have begun our journey from Baker to (now) Stillwater, Minnesota. We were talking not too long ago and she was talking about how she identifies certain songs with certain places that she stayed. She will hear songs and then make playlists for me or the kids. It's been fun and has provided a connection for us when we are not all together.
All of this leads to the title of this post. One of the songs on one of those playlists was a song called "It's Not Easy" and the chorus follows with the line "Breaking Your Heart". Of the half a dozen discs that have been cycling through our cd player in the car, that song, which I hadn't really latched on to previously, all of a sudden started standing out as I finalized our move from Bozeman.
The song itself as a metaphor for a stage in our journey break…
How do you talk about the awesome things that are coming without the talking about the the things that have shaped you? There's no easy way to do it. I think it becomes even harder when the place you come from has so much value. It does. Where you come from matters. The story changes though when there is a large difference between where you are coming from and where you are going to. But let me back up, because no story is simple..
For the purposes of this post, our story started in 2008 when we found out Autumn was pregnant. It continues later that year when Autumn went through an amazing process called child birth that many have gone through. I won't pretend it was any more special than any other birth, but it was very special to us! Having child is certainly one of the most memorable events that people go through and it was no different for us. Our beautiful little Trinity came and charmed us with her winning smile.
Fast forward nine more months and I am walking across the pa…
Seems like it's been a while since we spoke. Well, it's been a while since I spoke. You could have been talking up a storm for all I know! I like storms! But I'm off track already. Here's a little of what's going on. There will be a more comprehensive update at some point, probably. For now you get a smattering of cuteness and vague references to what's actually going on in our lives. Enjoy!

In Stillwater, Minnesota I was lucky enough to stumble across this little beauty!
Back to Bozeman: Spring has sprung and bike rides become the order of the day!
