About Me

My photo
A 30-something living in the foothills of the Virginia mountains; I'm saved by grace, addicted to coffee and my little sister is my best friend! I devote most of my time to exploring, reading, attending as many Nationals games as possible and documenting life here. My Prince Charming got lost somewhere along the way...but I'm trying to remain hopeful that true love exists.

The Flashback - February

I find myself starting this post by thinking that surely 2015 can't be in the past...didn't it just begin? I'm then reminded that February of 2015 did; in fact, happen twelve months ago and I need to get it together, get with the picture and move into the present.

I remember as a child thinking that each year took ages to pass. Days were long, months were longer...and let's not even get started on how impossibly long it took for time to pass in the month of December! It seemed like Christmas would never arrive! I have to wonder - what makes time "seem" to pass differently from childhood to adulthood? Perhaps as a child, life is filled with wonder and the only "job" is to play...to learn and grow...but as an adult there are so many jobs, so many responsibilities, so many things that need to be done/want to be done and the hours in the day are so finite. 

I'm not sure what causes time to pass so much more quickly at thirty-one than it did at thirteen, but it certainly does. It's already 2016...February is already almost gone...time is passing, quicker than ever it seems...
