JSP Visual Week In Review | 04.05.14

(c)JerseyStyle Photography_WIR_040514

It was a week of newness this this past week.

A new baseball season started.

My little girl turned 7, a new year in her life.

And, while yesterday was raw and rainy, it does feel like spring is ready to breakthrough.

Things don’t stay the same in life, and that’s a good thing. I’m a weird combination of a creature of consistency and comfort and one who can’t sit still, needs to experience new things. Drives my wife crazy.

Last night, the local middle school hosted International Night. The kids could walk around to the different country tables, learn about the culture, and get their “passport” stamped. I stayed home with the boys, but Leslie and Liv went, sounded like a pretty cool event.

Before Liv went, though, she wanted me to write down all the places I’ve traveled too. Think it’s like 20 or 21 countries now.

And while that’s cool and all, close to home is where it’s at. Now that spring is coming, I’m looking forward to getting outside more, doing some projects around the house, exploring the beaches again.

I tried to explain to Liv that while travel is fantastic – and I know I’m blessed to have been able to do so much of it – the local is pretty cool too.

Wherever you are, keep an eye out for the local this week.
