Looking Back

Bryan and I love looking at homes. We currently own a home but we never get tired of looking at new ones. We like to look at different neighborhoods and just be nosy. I am really not sure why... but we love it.

Tonight we found ourselves in an area we had been before. Sometimes we return to the same neighborhoods and rethink about living there. I wouldn't say we are looking to move but I guess we like to dream about it. We kept driving and we took a few turns and before I knew it we were by our old apartments were we lived several years ago. The memories came flooding back. I remember moving into that apartment over some strange circumstances. I was somewhat disappointed and confused when we made our move into that one bedroom apartment. But as I drove past there tonight I was surrounded by some pretty amazing memories. As we drove by I was twisting my neck to see if I could sneak a peak of our old front door.

I remember wanting to move from that apartment but tonight I found myself wanting it all back. Isn't that how life can be though? We often stand in the present longing for the past. I think its because sometimes we understand the past more than we understand the present or future. We know what happens in the past because we have been there, but we don't know the future.

If I could go back, I would tell my 23 year old self to enjoy every second and every twist and turn. I hope I can look back at myself someday in this moment and say the same thing.

*I hope to give this blog a makeover soon! Some new colors and pics to be added soon! Thanks for reading!
