In our crazy busy and ever-changing (but wonderful) life, there seems to be only one constant: We are ALWAYS on the go! In the beginning of our marriage, Chris spent most of his life on the road shooting Extreme Weight Loss while I was home holding down the fort, taking care of the kids, running the businesses, and juggling the show peeps behind the scenes. I seriously thought I was going to go CRAZY a handful of times…especially when I was prego!!!!! For real. Anyway, I remember at one point, we had actually calculated the cumulative time that Chris had spent on the road, and the number of months was eye-opening. We figured he had missed 9 (yes, NINE) entire months out of one year when Cashy was just a baby. It was definitely one of the most difficult times in my life, and I can imagine I wasn’t the only one who struggled with it.
Thankfully, much has changed since then. Chris has traveled less, I have traveled more, we have traveled MUCH more together, and we have brought the kids along for SO much of it! We’ve settled into much more of a “routine” life (if you can call it that). But with so much time away, we have all learned the importance of the phrase “Home is where the heart is.” ?
The Meet the Powell Pack episode I’m featuring today is quite the emotional blast from the past and still brings tears to my eyes. I’m grateful these moments were captured though…it makes me even MORE grateful for the “balance” we have found today. Enjoy MTPP Episode 2!!
