First and foremost, I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of the men and woman who have given their life for our freedoms. Our day-to-day lives would be so much different without the bravery and selflessness that our soldiers exhibit — for all of us. We are so blessed to live in the country we live in.
It’s been a while since I’ve written here! Things have been a mix of good and difficult, sometimes both in the same day. My amazing Gramma passed last month and shortly thereafter, my husband’s Grandmom passed. There has been a lot of loss, a lot of stress, and a lot of uncertainty.
Turning towards each other and our faith has been a lifesaver for my hubby and I. This has been a difficult couple of years for us, and we’re looking forward to brighter things ahead. On the blogging front, I have really been trying to limit my work hours to daytime so that I can be finished by 6:00. That’s taken me away from this blog that I enjoy so much, but I really miss it. I feel like I really want to find a place for it! So I will try. 🙂
I am so inspired by the projects that I see all over the internet, on Pinterest, on my favorite blogs… It used to make me sad because I don’t have my own home that I can experiment with, so much so that I couldn’t read the blogs because I just felt so empty. But now I am feeling excited and inspired again as the time nears for us to have our own home and it makes me want to read and Pin and Google ideas again. I’ve missed that.
I love to create and bake and feel inspired. I think we all love to feel inspired. I want to rediscover that part of myself…it has been missing for too long!
With this blog, I hope to write more and create more. And I can start that now. There are some organizational projects I want to do with some items that I have, there are crafts that I can do, there are things I can bake… I don’t have to wait! I think that is what I am realizing. I have been depriving myself of all of these things that used to give me joy because I would think to myself, “When you have your OWN house you can do these things…” But I don’t think it needs to be that way.
I think I am just realizing that right now. We will have our own space soon enough, but in the meantime, I have to find my joy. And I have to make it a point to do that every day.
