Over the past year, I’ve sat here in front of my laptop so many times, just as I do now, with the intention to write… something, anything… but the words failed me over and over again. Rather than do nothing, I’d tinker with the site – making a few changes here and there… adding and removing …
This and That
The past two weeks have been busy ones here at home. Ever since we found out that we were expecting a second child, 5 years ago, we started planning turning converting our loft into a bedroom, giving us three bedrooms instead of just two.
Five weeks – It is now the last week of September – my birthday week. Time truly does not stand still and over one month has passed already.
It’s finally beginning to feel like fall here in the Midwest. Last week’s heatwave has thankfully left us, and after a few stormy days, we are now blessed with sunny skies and temps in the mid 70’s – perfection in my book!
Summer vacation is nearly here for all of the littles in the house. Abby had her last day of preschool 2 weeks ago. I must admit that it was a little bittersweet. I’ve had at least one little in going to that school for the past four years… and now there will be a 2 year gap – and only one of the teachers that my kids had will be there when we return. While it will be odd not having anyone to bring to preschool, I’m really looking forward to spending more quality time alone with Michael!
I’m so happy to announce the addition of the Noby Designs shop to this site!
I’ve wanted to have an independent place to sell totes (and more), but have been afraid to make the move because it was such a big move to make!
Right now: * I’m fighting something… again… which means that echinacea tea and essential oils are my best friends until it’s gone. * my toddler has a nose that refuses to stop running thanks to teething and the same head cold that I’m fighting. * moving somewhere warmer would be a dream come true. …
Good morning! It’s so very peacefully quiet in the house right now. It’s 6:30 in the morning… my husband has already left for the day and the kids are still sleeping… most of them in their own beds, one of them in ours.
The thing about being an introvert, is that it is so very hard to really put yourself out there for everyone to see. Even when “hiding” behind a computer screen and typing the words out on the keyboard, it’s tough to step over that imaginary line drawn on the ground, hit publish, and just bare it all for the world to see without censoring yourself in some way.
The holidays are over, the decorations taken down, and the tree put away for another 11 months… or something like that.
