things will bloom

My lilac bush is starting to bud. I'm so excited to see it bloom this year, every year, so those little buds, well they hold so much promise. Just seeing them there makes me happy before I even see a flower or smell that intoxicating scent.

That lilac and my life are a lot alike right now. I feel like there are a lot of things "budding," all of which are just chock full of promise. Will they all bloom exactly as hoped? Probably not. But at least some of them will, and that is a beautiful thing. 

The warmer weather, the strengthening sun, its coaxing excitement and life out of my lilacs current brown blah-ness. I feel like its coaxing new things out of me too.

I'm signed up for a class, starting this summer, to become a Certificated Lactation Educator Counselor. I'm a little terrified. It has been a long time since I've been in school, and its going to be a lot of evening and weekend work for me. But I'm so excited. Its a topic I'm really passionate about and I can't wait until I can help other people become passionate about it too. 

Trav and I are planning out summer vacations. We're both taking some extra days during the summer so that half of the summer session weeks Gwen will do will be 3-day weeks. We're working on nailing down our Cape Cod week, and then will figure out which of those long weekends we can turn into our annual camping trip. 

We've started looking around to see what houses are out there as we anticipate a move to a better school district, and a shorter commute for him (and to Ro and Pat!), sometime before kindergarten registration next year.  (Pardon me while I hyperventilate...) 

And that's just a few of the things. Exciting months ahead! Can't wait to see what blooms. Can't wait to share it all too!  

My beautiful lilac, last year.
