How do you feel about surprises?

I’ve never much cared for them myself – the control freak in me I suppose. And yet as any of us who’ve been on the planet for awhile knows, life is full of them – some great, some not so great. Just when you think you’ve got things all figured out you’re surprised by someone or something that reminds you that you don’t. Take my impending move for instance. No way at this point in my life did I ever think I would be moving to a new city in another state and starting again. And yet here’s where one of those great surprises comes in.  This past weekend during our house-hunting expedition I discovered, much to my surprise, that I’m loving the fact that I’m about to embark on a new adventure.

It feels fun.

It feels invigorating.

It feels – SURPRISE! – Great!

Here’s to sweet surprises. xox~M
