One year ago ...

One year ago I was celebrating my birthday in Disneyland with my amazing family and I had just shared a super exciting blog post with you all about a new business venture that i started with my longtime friend and then new business partner, Deanyne.  I talked about re-creating my at that time, 9 year old business into something that worked better for me, my lifestyle, my family and mostly my creative self.

At the time I had HUGE intentions of keeping up with BOTH blogs.  Posting about all the things I've been doing with our business, my kids and other crafty things that I do. I think we can all see how much time I have had to devote to this blog ... ZERO !!

I find that saying 'I don't have time' or 'I'm too busy' can be such an excuse ... BUT, I think that what is was more for me is that the 'free' time that I have had was better spent doing other things.

I have travelled a TON ... not around the world mind you but back and forth between Vancouver Island and Calgary mostly.  A 40th birthday Disneyland trip was in there too (best birthday ever) ... and a whole lot of hockey, horses, dogs, lunch dates with girlfriends and some amazing time with my husband (every other month) !!

I have spent countless hours working with Deanyne on our business and that has been AMAZING.  We work so well together and have so many amazing ideas that we hope to bring to our fabulous customers in the weeks and months to come ...

I have been lucky enough to be in our home on the island for weeks at a time.  I have painted and crafted and cooked and drinks lots of wine with amazing friends while my kiddos enjoyed every second with their friends too !!  I feel like every time we go home, we build more of our life there and i am so incredibly excited for the future and one day being able to live there full time again !!

I am more thankful for this life that I get to live than I could every express in words here ... i have (2) children that are healthy, happy and actually seem to enjoy hanging out with Scott and I (at least for now :)) ... I have this man that has loved me every single day for close to 20 years.  We get to spend time together that many can only dream of at such a young age and for that I will always be grateful for ... 

So hear I am on my 41st birthday and as much as I want to continue with this blog, for now, I am going to give myself a break and not feel the pressure to post. I am going to hope that you will check in with me on our BUSINESS BLOG or on my FACEBOOK PAGE and maybe one day (sooner or later) i will decide to sit down here and share a little bit more of my life in the day to day ...

For now i will say thanks you for stopping by and taking a few minutes out of your day to read about mine ... i hope this finds you and your families well and that you spend your 'free' time doing something that makes you happy !!

Until next time ...
