"A delicate balance...and this just feels like spinning plates." - Radiohead

Well, it's been a few days, hasn't it? I've been a very busy girl. We are FINALLY closing on our house today, so we have been occupied with preparing for the move. In addition, the school year is coming to a close and my days and nights have been filled with end of school activities with my kids. Oh, and we picked up our puppy this weekend. So, a lot of exciting changes have been happening in my life.

This outfit is from last week. I saw this sweater on a reader who is also a Facebook friend and instantly knew I needed it in my life. The butterfly pin was a gift from my daughter for Mother's Day. She made it herself. I think it's pretty good work for a 4 year old. I was a little apprehensive about pining it on my sweater. In addition to being beautiful this sweater is extremely delicate. Thankfully, I was able to stick it through holes in the sweater and actually pin it to the cami underneath.

Speaking of being delicate, my anxiety level has been back up lately. All the changes, even though they are exciting, have upped my stress level. The ride home with the puppy was especially rough. I think I tried to do too much in one day. Jerry and I drove 2 hours to Anthro, so I could redeem his birthday discount (our birthdays are only 4 days apart), then we drove 2 hours to pick up the puppy, and then we drove yet another 2 hours home. On the way home, the puppy got sick 3 times in the car, and I found myself feeling very overwhelmed and anxious. I'm feeling much better today. The puppy has gotten settled, and we've all gotten used to one another. Of course, now that we are all settled again, it's time to move into a new house. Never a dull moment. I wouldn't have it any other way.
