So there I was, getting rained on and rapidly losing my temper at my dogs who were simply doing the exact opposite thing to everything I said. It was after 2pm and I hadn't done anything productive yet which included eating. It doesn't help that I'm severely hypoglycemic which added to my lack of patience. Then it hit me out of the blue...I hadn't fueled up yet. Its important in life to know and understand the things that fuel me because I need infusions constantly to truly appreciate life. So, I wrapped up my tiny in my favorite blanket, grabbed my coffee steaming in my favorite mug, my camera and a chair to watch the storm roll in. There are few things I love more than a rolling spring storm but I'll take what I can get. By the end, it had happened. Sometime between my sipping, my clicking and my snuggling, something in me had shifted. Suddenly, I couldn't stop smiling. I was happy and I even forgave my affable, albeit trying, dogs. Suddenly, the blessings in my life were all I could think about. My gorgeous home and the more simple thought of a roof over my head, central heating, a full pantry, clothing for me and my family, and more love than most people ever get to experience, to name a very small few.

And there is the blessing of the baby who drifts off by himself, sleeps long enough for me to write this post and then wakes up with this face!!


About Me

My photo
I'm a new wife and an even newer mom. I have a secret dream to be super-mom. I love to craft, cook, dance and fill my life with as many adventures as possible. I'm slightly crunchy granola but enjoy a good steak. I'm right brained and type B (with some type A tendencies). I thrive best when I get to use my creative juices. I dabble in photography and party planning. I play piano and have a dream to learn the cello. I want to make the most of this one, short life I find myself living.

About This Blog

This blog was originally intended to be a personal journal of my pregnancy journey and all that that entails--shared with only a few close family members. It was a way for me to keep them posted on all things baby and occasionally post a picture of my growing torso so they could see the progress. After several posts, I started to get hooked on other blogs and became motivated to attempt to do more with mine. We'll see how it goes....
