Gone fishin'

Happy Friday, friends.

In all my excitement over going on vacation, I forgot to post that I would be gone! :) I'm in Michigan now and have been having a great time visiting my family. I'll be here until the beginning of August, so my presence around the blogosphere will be limited for a while. I'll try to check in from time to time though. I can't wait to catch up with you all!

Wishing you all a fantastic rest-of-July. :)

Friday fun

Happy Friday, and Happy Fourth of July to all my fellow Americans! Do you have big plans for the day or weekend? We're heading to a parade this morning, and then tomorrow, we're off to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday and my brother-in-law's retirement. Fun!

Whatever your plans, I hope you have a wonderful weekend. ☺

...because who couldn't use a laugh on a Monday?

Happy Monday, friends.

With all of last weekend's (fun) chaos, I didn't get the opportunity to post my Sunday Inspiration. That series should be back next week. ☺

Today, I just can't resist this hilarious video that has made its way around the Internet quite a lot recently. I think it's the perfect way to start a Monday. Enjoy!

Wishing you all a wonderful day. ☺

Friday fun

Happy Friday, friends.

What a week it's been! I thought that things would slow down a little now that my oldest two are out of school, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Whew! All I can do is go along for the ride, right? ☺

This weekend will be busy as well because we're having a birthday party for my oldest daughter. Her actual birthday isn't until July 10, but our July is already packed full of visits and vacations and other fun ventures. This will be her first friends party, and she's so excited! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? You're welcome to come here and help us eat birthday cake. ;)

Now on to this week's funnies. Enjoy!

Wishing you all a fun and happy weekend. ☺

And baby makes five!

Happy Wednesday, friends. It's been a long time! Thank you to all who have sent emails and posted comments. I appreciate them so much.

Well, a lot has happened since I last posted, the most notable being the birth of my daughter. She was born on April 3, a few days earlier than expected. Since then, I've been discovering just how difficult it is to go from caring for two kids to caring for three. I'd always heard that it's harder to go from one to two, but that definitely hasn't been my experience. ☺

I'm sorry I haven't posted before now. The baby has been sleeping through the night since she was about a month old, which is indeed a blessing, but the trade-off is that she wants to be held all day. I've gotten next to nothing done for the past ten weeks. But even though my house is a mess and I'm behind on my art and writing and blogging and emailing, I'm happy. I know how fast these months fly by, and I'm doing all I can to truly live in the moment. As the Aerosmith refrain goes, I don't wanna miss a thing. ☺

I don't want to miss anything else in the blogosphere either. My goal is to start writing here as often as I can. It might take me a while to get back to posting several times a week, but I'll make it there eventually. I've missed you all, and I'm eager to start catching up on what you've been doing. I may not be able to visit your blogs daily for a while, but I will soon. In the meantime, please let me know in the comments how you've been. I can't wait to hear!

Well, my "free" time has ended, and I'm off to get the baby now. Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday. ☺

Sunday inspiration

Happy Sunday, friends. ☺

Today's inspiration is a fun social experiment that Duracell conducted this past winter in an effort to get strangers to interact. The company created a bus shelter with heaters powered by human connection, and for the heaters to work, strangers had to hold or touch hands in order to form a chain connecting the two sides of the shelter. In a world where people are only too ready to ignore those around them, I love the idea behind this experiment! What's your take on it?

Wishing you all a creative and inspirational Sunday. ☺

Friday fun

Happy Friday, friends. ☺

Before I get to this week's funnies, I want to thank all of you for your well-wishes and expressions of sympathy over the loss of my dog last week. It meant a lot to read your stories and realize that I'm not alone. Thank you for helping me get through a difficult time.

I have a baby update as well. No, she's not here yet, but my due date (April 11) is getting closer. My mom is here now to help me with my two older kids, and having her here has definitely taken some of my stress away. I still have a few more things I need to do to get ready for my daughter's arrival, but I'm happy to say I'm feeling a little more relaxed now.

On to the funnies. I hope you enjoy this week's signs and videos, and I wish you all a wonderful weekend. ☺
