My Christmas Wish - #BehindTheBlogger

Looking back over the last year or so, my life has been transformed.  Mostly because I stopped being so 'ambitious' with my career and going towards what makes me happy which is being around friends and family - 'my tribe' so to speak.  Through my friend and her family and church, my circle of 'family' has grown exponentially.  I am blessed beyond belief and feel at home when I'm around them all.  I didn't have this for most of my life and certainly not at all hardly for my adult life.  So I know how great it is to have people who are family around you, who get you, and who want to help you no matter what.  And I know there a tons of people out there that are the way I was (floating through life not realizing what is really important) or just down on their luck.  My Christmas Wish is for all of them to find what I found by just following what I knew deep down inside made me happier than anything else.  That is the key. 

I'm actually at this moment...trying to possibly buy a house right next door to my friend!  It is that much more important to me to be there than living on the beach (where I'm at now).  I know - crazy, right?  But it just feels right so I'm doing it.  Here's a picture of the house:

By the way, I said I'd never buy a house again after the house I had in Ohio.  And I hate mowing.  So the fact that I'm moving forward with this, you know that friends/family are high on my list!  I mean who gets the opportunity to live right next door to their good friend?  THIS GIRL!  Merry Christmas, y'all!
