So Far So Good...

Making a big life change is pretty scary.
But, know whats even scarier?  Regrets...

For many and mostly for all our families, it is not unusual to see deers crossing the street.
  For us on the other hand it is very unusual.  Living in Fort Lauderdale the only thing
 you see crossing the street are pedestrians.  At the same time one has to make sure to 
not hit them.  Just the same as with the deers, many do not look before they leap.

This is what Arvid and I saw the other night as we were coming home from dinner.
I find it a truly amazing sight, one that I don't think I will ever be tired of.  I am not
 a nature/outdoor person, but I love animals and I love seeing them running free.

Sniff Sniff has adjusted amazingly well to life here as has Arvid and myself. 
 I still stop and wonder how come.  How is it that the cold has not bothered us?  Only
 glad it has not.  Yes it's cold and some days too cold, but we are not so freaked out.
  Our home is kept so warm that I times I am actually too hot. Hmmm...

I do miss a lot of things from Florida.  Of course the weather.  Our restaurants.  
I don't find it the same here.  Guess it will take some more exploring to find the ones
 we really would like to go back to again and again.  I miss my car. I miss Publix and just 
running around on my own.  I really miss my Macy's outings at the Galleria Mall. We have 
been to the malls here, but they will never compare to the ones back home in Florida.

On the other hand, the change of scenery has done wonders for us.  We have
 something new everyday to deal with, to wake up to and to look forward to. 
 I wanted a change and that we have.  I am grateful for it always.

Good morning all.  Sometimes we have to remember that change
is what we need, and that the things we can't change are
the same things that end up changing us.

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, 
you have within you the strength, the patience, and the
 passion to reach for the stars to change the world...
