Remember when I used to blog ?

I barely do! Ack, I'm ashamed how neglected my blog has been. Sorry lil fella. (Finley says that all the time if she bumps into things. Hilarious!)

Anyhow, I could probably think of a million excuses for leaving the blog to fend for itself (um...moved across 1000 miles this month, for one) but the REAL reason is because I've been toying with an idea for this blog....and I'm not sure I can commit to it yet, but at the same time I'm not sure how much I can handle seeing this blog so lonesome!! So..... my only option seems to be to grab the blog by the.... horns (?) and simply go for it. And by that I mean...share my little idea with you so that I have no choice but to face it.

So, without further delay, here is what my blog intends to be about. Although if you know me, you know well enough I rarely stick to a point and a segue (not the little vehicles, but boy do I want to try one of those!) is my best friend :)

This little blog, combined with my trials and tribulations of being a mom; who works, sews and cares for her unpredictable little girl, is also about learning lessons. No no no, not boring little lessons like "Do unto others..." and stuff like that (though those are great lessons, you really should heed those ;) but little lessons that you can take from each and every day from your own personal experiences.

My husband has a friend from his golfing days. He's a great guy, and everyday he would take something from his life and say "There's my lesson for the day." When I heard about this a few years ago I became inspired! What a great way to live your life! So I began to look at life that way too. It's remarkably refreshing. You ought to try it someday :)

Anyhow, I don't plan to have a lesson a day, that's for sure! But maybe every once in a while? Maybe until I get a little less busy and can dedicate more time to it? I also intend to involve you my dear friends....oh, just you wait and see. :)

Anyhow, I hope that helps explain a little bit about my hiatus. And today I will leave you with this, first, lesson.

Don't wipe your feet on a raffia style floor mat when barefoot. Trust me. Seriously.




  1. This kinda reminds me of when you're at a restaurant and the waiter/waitress says "don't touch the plate, it's hot!" What's the first thing you do? Now I'm gonna go wipe my feet on a rafia mat! haha! (No, not really)

  2. LMAO, that's EXACTLY what I do too Evette!!! But seriously, trust me. It was one of the dumbest things I've done in a long time ;)
