Behind the Blog Posts

January 2nd, 2016 in About Me

I did it! I caught up on our family’s life all the way up until Christmas on our blog. That was my goal and I did not think it could be done.

Life has had a lot of beautiful moments, fun things to do, and places to go. Life has also been stressful, at times sad, and tiring. This holiday season I had a very hard two weeks. That were full of a lot of physical pain, sad news, stressful work situations, and bad flare ups of my depression.

Having the last 7 days where I have had some time to slow down and recoup has helped me a lot.

My uncle took my grandmother’s cactus and split it into parts for some of her granddaughters. I know she misses being around for baptisms, holidays, and birthdays. Little things tell me that she is there and make it so she can show she is there and is participating.

This holiday season her cactus flowers bloomed for me.

I love her and that she still looks out for me.

Merry Christmas, we love you all, here is a snapshot of our Christmas card.




I hope to be back with some blog plans I have. My blog is a journal to my girls, so it is just little projects for them I want to share on here. I hope I get some time to work on it a bit. We will see, have a great last of the holiday break.
