The Holding Pattern

I was so proud of myself when I was blogging all the time back in Kabul.  But now that we're home, I find it difficult to find anything to blog about.  Yes, life has been exciting, challenging, and fun since we got back.  But I spend a lot of time feeling really normal. The Hawk and I feel like we've entered a season of waiting.  We're people that enjoy going, seeing, doing.  We love adventures, we love living in far away places, we love dreaming and planning and then getting right to it.  But for the time being, we're in the holding pattern.  We know that it's not forever.  We talk often about our "What's next?"  And we know that we're where we're supposed to be, at least for awhile.  It's just a very abrupt shift in life's gears to go from living in Kabul to living in Gig Harbor. And I seem to find all of this hard to put in words.  To some extent, I feel that my blog is in the holding pattern too.  With that said, I'm starting to process and grasp what life in the States looks like for Team Hawk.  I'm getting ready for new things and new experiences.  I'm trying to think of an interim title and subject matter for my blog (big important things).  I'm ready to settle into what life will be like for me here.  So, look for more posts from me in the not too distant future.  And I'm open to blog name ideas!
