Embracing it All!

Happy Monday!! I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!! My family and I had church then it was High School graduation, receptions and lots of visiting. We finally got home around 7pm. Dave cooked us steaks on the grill and we ate outside. Very nice.

I did a craft show on Saturday...very last minute! I worked nearly 20 hours on Friday getting ready for the event. You should see my studio...looks like a hurricane hit it...oh my heck!!!

I will share photos later:)

Thanks to everyone that got me your addresses...prizes are going looooong last!!

The next few weeks are CRAZY!!! Here is everything we have going on!!

*Sectional soccer game (away)
*Ozarks with Jackson for Optimist Speech State Contest
*Em's 15th Birthday and party
*My cousin's wedding in Springfield
*Possibly 3 more play-off games for soccer then STATE (the SAME weekend as wedding...3 hours away from wedding...)
*Em's surgery

WOW!!! It is NUTS!!

But I have decided to embrace it all and enjoy everything!!

  1. I love your title. I think that is one key to a happy life, embracing it all. It's such a learning process and sometimes it's a lesson that needs to be learned over and over..(at least for me). I'm trying to keep that switch flipped to the on (positive)side but more times than not, it just gets stuck in the middle. I think that would be a great motto "FLIP THAT SWITCH" and add your title "EMBRACING IT ALL"!!!

    Can't wait to see your craft show pics, hope it was a great time. Good luck with your busy schedule in the next few weeks and with Em's surgery.

    Love ya Les! :)

  4. Awe, THANK YOU Leslie!!! SO looking forward to having you play along! Beautiful, important reminder here (I love all the blues) and oh my goodness! GOOD luck with all of that - what a ton on your plate! Breathe . . . . xoxo!
