I have a friend in town.
Our lives are a little different...
She and her coworkers fly on commuter airplane to work each morning.
I drive preschool carpool.
She goes grocery shopping once a month.
I grocery shop one to four times a week.
I have to negotiate every part of my day, my shower, my run, my coffee, everything.
She, well... does not.
I used to dream of being an expat.
Now I day dream of a vacation abroad or down the road with my children and husband in tow.
When I look at my friends that have taken different roads, I think a lot about the choices I have made.
I get to snuggle my babies when they wake up. We get to picnic in the park, and play in the sun.
There are upsides to each of the paths we choose, this is mine.
