Are you ready?

That has been the question on my mind a lot lately. Are you ready? With a new little one soon to arrive and 100 things still left to do I find that question racing through my mind a lot. Unfortunately the answer is usually NOPE! But I am ready for a few things, one in particular is that I am ready to reveal my new design early next week! I can't wait to tell you all more about it be sure to check back in to see what I have for you!

Family is super important to me; both my little growing family, and the family I grew up with. Lately I have been reflecting a lot on my family. I am the 5th out of 9 children--and yes, that is from one set of parents who are still happily married after 35 years. I am constantly awed that although we were raised by the same parents, in the same house, with the same set of morals and rules, we all turned out so different!! We have all achieved a broad range of education, life styles and religion -- not to mention that we are now all scattered across the U.S. and one in Canada. In spite of all our differences, we are a close family and the older we get, the better our relationships are becoming. Some of my siblings and I talk on an almost daily basis, some a little less than that and still others not nearly often enough. Yet, when I need them they are always there to lend a shoulder, offer advice or extend a helping hand.

One of the things I love most about our family is that we know how to laugh. Maybe even too much at times (is that even possible?!!) The last time we all got together we had family pictures taken and more often than not the picture was “ruined” because instead of smiling nicely, we were all bright red and laughing so hard we had tears in our eyes. And while it makes for a great memory, it didn’t make for the best pictures. We have more inside jokes than should be allowed and it doesn’t matter if there are just two of us together or all of us, those jokes are sure to be shared and endlessly laughed about.

Something else I love about families is that in my religion, The Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints (aka Mormons), we believe that families are forever! I love the thought and the reassurance that it gives. Even if something happens in this life to shorten our time together we can still be a family forever! It brings me joy and it also challenges me to have a better relationship with my family because for better or worse they will be there when everything else is gone.

My family is such a strengthening force in my life. If you love your family as much as I love mine, you will LOVE the new design I am working on!

Look for it to debut later on this month!

Change is in the air.

Wow! It's been MONTHS! Well, change is in the air in so many ways, and my lack of blogging is one of the big things to change. Apparently if you have a store online you "need" to do more than actually have a store. Who knew? Apparently a lot of people LOL. I guess this is something that I knew that I needed to do I just didn't know how. That has recently changed! I have been shown the light on social media/networking and think I not only understand how it works a little better but understand how it can work for me without being overwhelming and work for you as readers by being fun, informative and interesting!!! Over the next few days I will be updating my site to reflect my new business logo and update all my information and then the race is on! I already have reviews, sales, new designs and stories all lined up to hopefully keep you coming back for more and more.

To kick things off you can go check out Next Stop - Baby where I am being featured today and checking it out just might pay off in a coupon code for my shop!! Who doesn't love a coupon code?

Well, I hope you all have a wonderful Monday and make sure you check back tomorrow for some awesome changes and a fun story.
