I have come to terms with the fact that I am a nomad. Not by choice and not in the "wanderlust" sense but in the sense that my whole life I have never stayed in one place/activity/group/sport/hobby/job/home for very long. There has been longer stretches than others but for the most part I find myself moving. From one thing to the next.

I can say the same about the little family that my husband and I created. We have moved and shifted and adjusted to one thing or the next more than I would like to admit to.

The beauty of it is that when I look back I can see the very clear evidence of God's guiding hand. I can see clearly that the darkest times of my nomad life, He was working, He was turning my face to the light, He was drawing me close even when I was pulling away from Him.

After writing at for over a year, I have finally found my writing niche and am looking forward to sharing my stories here at The Accidental Nomad Life. I want to share with you the ways that God has worked in my life through marriage, children, jobs, people, friends and all the rest. I will share my boy mom fashion on Wednsedays with my good friend, Adventurous Shelby and from time to time do a book review on Tuesdays. The rest of the time you can anticipate finding recipes that I love, other bloggers that I admire, craft projects that are useful and simple to do as well as some homeschooling progress (yes, this fall we will begin the task of homeschooling two boys!!!)

To find out more about me, Kayla, the accidental nomad, you can check me out on my (coming soon) about page!

I am looking forward to sharing my adventures with you and hearing more about your stories in my comments!
