Good morning friends!!!
It has been a beautiful, crazy month around here. After 3 long years, we were blessed to be able to visit family for the holidays. Meeting new family members for the first time, getting caught up with life face-to-face, getting to hug my Mama after 3 years; needless to say, our Christmas was easily fulfilled this year!
This past year was filled with great change for our family, as we went through a closing of my home daycare in preparation for a cross country move. We than packed up from West Coast to East Coast. A few short weeks after the move, we were given the hard news that My husbands Nana had passed away. Husband began very long hours at work, leaving me alone with little K day upon day. To go from taking care of 6 children daily, to just one little angel each day can make for long days. How easily one can go crazy with the monotony of the day. Sitting alone with little K asleep one day a few weeks back, I was hit with great inspiration.
Why fill the days with busy work and repetitive playtime, when I can EMBRACE this free time and really use it to grow. I taught myself to crochet.I have always wanted to learn guitar. I would love to fill more hours with books, both novels and informative. I yearn to grow my mind and learn more things.
I have chosen to focus on a new thing to embrace every month, sharing my thoughts and learnings along the way! I would love for you to join me each month in this path of growth!
To begin this "movement" I chose to document my word in a layout.
This marks my first project as a design team member for My Scraps and More, the online store that carries a great variety of product, along with an amazing forum with some of the sweetest members around. I used the new October Afternoon line: Public Library, which I am now, officially in love with!
