Hello + Update

Hello to my friends!

I’ve taken a bit of a blogging break to focus on my family. As moms, it’s always the never-ending struggle to manage priorities and to keep our focus in the right place. The kiddos are growing faster than I would like, but what a joyous time! I’ve managed to catch up on your sweet comments and feeling super loved and blessed!

I have some very exciting news to share with you but I must wait just a couple more days… stay tuned, my friends!

Shhhhhhh... I have a secret.  I  becauseiliketodecorate.com

Awesome things I found — kid’s edition

I can’t believe it, but as I’m typing this post I’m thousands of miles away from my home and my babies! They are well taken care of, but oh how I miss them so! And because I’m thinking about my children so very much, I thought it was appropriate to share with you some amazing web finds for the kiddos!

Check out this homemade play dough recipe from kidsactivitiesblog.com And made with only two ingredients!

This is one of those, “why didn’t I think of that” moments. Thank you notes for the little ones to color! These cards are available on Etsy for purchase or as you can probably figure, make your own!

I Make People.

This week my pregnancy has finally caught up with me… I’m so T.I.R.E.D! Not to mention emotional stuff and the fact that I think I may be coming down with something (fingers crossed that my body is just tired and its not a cold)! Feeling yuck, so I’m just going to go sit on the couch now… just being honest with you my friends! It’s time to rest and take care of baby boy.

I’ve got a lot of things in the works, but as I’ve found myself now in the 3rd trimester, I’m taking the advice that has been given to me from many of my friends and family… SLOW DOWN! :) “Rome wasn’t built in a day” and neither will my business.

Lots of love,
Mary
