I am STILL getting emails about my miscarriage post... a post I almost didn't publish because it made me feel totally vulnerable and raw in front of the internet. I've received similar feedback from my "Perspective" post last week. I think we all struggle with materialism to a degree. I was born and bred in Dallas and it took me moving to France to realize how incredibly bratty I was and how little we actually need. It has hit me in such a BIG way moving back to Dallas (a city renowned for its "Keeping up with the Joneses" and 30K millionaire mentality) and has made me question if I even fit in here at all. Post-France Abby just has zero tolerance for certain things and that is one of them. I truly prefer simplicity these days and hanging out with people who are down-to-earth and real.
I want to make an effort to be open about my life on this little space and at the same time protect our privacy. It is a tough balance and one I hope to do gracefully. So thank you to everyone who read, commented, encouraged, and supported me last week. It is something that has been under my skin ever since we moved back and I just needed to bring it to light... and it felt GOOD to get it out.
Here we sit just ONE WEEK later and Logan has a job that will provide a salary and benefits and we can officially start looking for a car. Crazy how much things can change in just 1 week.
