Lara at Overstuffed in the process of moving from Cedar City to Michigan (talk about a climate change!), and asked for a few friends to guest post while she's internetless, specifically about moves or big changes in their own lives.
First off, I was seriously flattered to be asked. Wow. Me? Cool! I tried not to be scared, because she's got quite a following.
And then I got to thinking about the topic, and a particular experience stood out for me. One of the biggest and hardest changes of my life was coming back from Finland after the three years my family had lived there. You'd think that coming HOME would have been easy, no? Well, not quite. I was thirteen, for starters.
I can't remember how I found Lara's blog, but it was part of my search for awesome LDS women bloggers, and when I clicked over to her blog the first time, I loved it on first sight. She was immediately added to my Google Reader and has stayed there. There are certain blogs I scroll through and might read (I subscribe to a LOT of blogs).
And then there are blogs I make SURE to read thoroughly and almost always, always comment on. Lara's is in the latter category.
We finally got to meet each other in person last month. How we never did before is a mystery to me, because we hung out with so many of the same people in high school.
Seriously . . . it's eerie, because we had so many mutual friends and had several common interests back then. We HAD to have been the same room several times and just never knew it. Her husband is even from my high school's graduating class.
Without further ado, here is my guest post today on her blog. I hope you enjoy it.
And I hope you return to her blog. It's a gem.
