Some thoughts on the cornfields

Its been three months since we moved to the middle of nowhere…and sometimes its funny to me that it’ll be in this small, unfamiliar, town that we will take so many huge steps as a family. But whether its in spite of Northwest Ohio, or because of its unique charm, we are happy.

And we are distinctly more happy when we focus on the positive. Life around here isn’t perfect, but there are always enough things to be happy about if we are willing to find them. Like these cornfields – they may have replaced all of the people, community, and civilization we left behind – but they’re never-ending and seem to whisper of potential (either that, or this whole experience is making me go crazy :P). 

P.S. I entered the top picture in the Suave Family Selfie Sweepstakes (I’ve been using Suave’s Rosemary and Mint shampoo & conditioner forever…so the guaranteed dollar coupon will go to good use). If you want to enter:
