Catching Up

I've had a few emails, comments and such made about the fact that I haven't posted since September.

Yeah...
About that...
I will now give my normal speech about how busy I've been.
I know you'll sigh and think "here we go again..."
For real though.
I've been crazy busy.
 
Let's roll it now in no particular order....

I had the pleasure of doing the flowers for two weddings in the last few months.
You can see those
Here (I was also a bridesmaid in this wedding:-)
and Here

Hunting season is here and as a wife of an avid hunter and the mother of 3 boys, it's either beat 'em or join 'em.
I actually do enjoy hunting now too.
 



School days are in full swing now.
Picking up and dropping off, homework, lunches, sickness...
Most of all the unspeakable joy I feel each time he comes home and with such pride shows me something he's learned that day.
 
I would say that in the past we have been an averagely healthy family.
We are smashing new records and building our own wing at the doctors office this season.
Lots of firsts with a broken arm, and a visit to the ER.
Strep throat, lower and upper respiratory infections, pneumonia, colds, hand foot and mouth...
I'm earning my keep and putting stock in vitamin companies:-)



I went to Virginia for two weeks to celebrate my younger sisters 30th birthday.
It was originally only going to be 1 week but Hurricane Sandy changed our plans.
We managed to sneak up to NYC for a few days for some sightseeing.
It even snowed for us the first evening.
 

 
We had an amazing time!!
 

 
I have squeezed projects in here but still have loads of stuff to do as well as loads of stuff that needs to be put in my Etsy store.

 
 

 
Next on the agenda though?
A belated giveaway to celebrate 1000 Followers!!
It will even include an absolutly gorgous bracelet from The Silver Craftsman.
 

 
 
Until then...

Jillian- I so remember those days of kids and illnesses and shows and school and on and on and on. It will all pass and you will find time for yourself in small stretches here and there. You enjoy every moment of your family because you can pick blogging up anytime...but you can't recover moments of your children's lives- xo Diana

Life is like that, you think that all the sickness is gone for a while, then - whoa! Someday you will be telling some young mother to just hang in there, it will all pass.
