French Lentil Soup and Life is sure changing fast!


It's windy day with a hint of spring in the air; a perfect day for French Lentil Soup soup! I have to take all of the opportunity I can get to eat soup before summer comes! I'm staying at my old house while my X is out of town and cooking for both of my kids. I can't believe how much our lives are going to change in the next several months! 

My oldest son is off to Alaska for the summer where he will be playing music for a tourist company. My younger son will graduate high school in June and will be off to college in the fall and I will be selling a good portion of my stuff, putting the rest in storage and I'll be off on my Cross Country Road Trip! I am excited, scared and sometimes, downright freaked out that I am doing this! 

This week will be very special to me since it may be the last time the three of us (and my dog) are together for this amount of time. I love my boys and it seems like yesterday they were babies. 

(My dog will be staying with my X while I do this. We share custody of her as it is)

  7. I am absolutely inspired by your cross-country trip. I've just started work so won't be doing anything like that for a while, but hopefully in the future... :)

  8. I know what you mean. I now have 2 graduates and a 16 year old that are spreading their wings. I feel like a young mom again as I no longer have my helpers :-)

  9. It's a great thing you're doing this road trip! Totally understandable for it to be exciting and emotional at the same time. See you in Mpls!
