Since the end of last year, I have realized that balance is key. Taking care of my family, myself and really getting to the heart of what is my life. I have missed being as creative as I once was, but I have been living life on a whim. Not getting stuck in that rut I was talking about.
We have been riding the Harley a lot and I LOVE it! We have taken a few weekend trips. We are eating healthier and have been living what Ellie like to call the "salsa" dream. Fresh made made salsa that Jon has perfected. Just spending quality time together. I have been staring at my journals for over a year and I would beat myself up because I knew there were SO many things I knew I would want to remember, but just couldn't journal for some reason.
I know one day my girls might experience some of the same things and struggles I have and might want to know what my thoughts were while I was going through them. So, I have been journaling.
I have done a few creative things and I have really gotten into felt and making rings.
Some of you have sent e.mails and little notes on my facebook wishing me well and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
I'm not sure if anyone is still here and that's Ok. I will be updating on a more regular basis. I have one thing (or book) that has inspired me in particular and I want to put a new spin on it. Especially for those of us that need to maintain that balance I was talking about. I will be starting that journey soon. This blog really will be my life journey, including some scrapbooking and jewelry making.
So, please stick around if you would like! AND Thank You again to all of you wonderful ladies that checked in on me.
I will leave you with some photos that I have taken recently that are my favorites from Shelby's 8th grade promotion, a couple of trips we have taken and Shelby's 14th birthday. Dear Lord, I can't believe she is going to be a freshman. WHERE did the time go, seriously! Whew! Sorry I got a little photo happy!
