I'm testing the waters of the blog world once again. I'm pretty sure no one is reading, but maybe that will change.
Life has been crazy for me lately. Big changes have occured. I'm dealing the best way I can and praying a lot, but it's been stressful. Lately I've been rediscovering the joys of my Catholic faith. I've been inspired by many awesome woman lately, mostly due to this. (seriously, check it out). I have so many stay at home mom dreams that I want to accomplish. (you know, the ones...having a successful crafty business which I have, but has been put on the back burner, learning how to take fantastic photos, getting my house completely organized (haha), and like I mentioned above, writing content on this little blog that people will want to read.
(I'll be honest. I took a short break from writing the above and thought about deleting it all. Ha.)
So what's been going on in the life of Kellie? Well...
(disclaimer - all photos for this post were taken with my crappy phone camera)
Where should I start. Big things. My middlest child will be entering kindergarten this year and let's just say, this mama isn't so sure she's ready to see him off. He's my strong willed child and it's been hard to picture him in such a structured space. I keep getting reassured that he will be just fine, but you know...mama worried. What will I be doing with my days with only one at home? (getting that little business going again perhaps?)
Perhaps this should have been first on the list to mention. Another BIG thing that happened was my husband was in a serious car accident last month. It's truly a wonder (and obvious miracle) that he is still alive. Not only that, but with a few cuts a bruises. As you can imagine, this is one of the more stressful things that are going on in our lives at the moment.
Onto a happier subject. My husband makes beer. Enough said? As parents of 3 young boys, this can be a very good skill to have. Seriously, the days can be long people and there's nothing quite like a good pint of homebrew.
What am I watching/reading these days? I'm glad you asked. The hubby and I just finished all of the Outlander episodes, which we absolutley LOVED. (It is quite graphic, but the story is amazing.) I'm currently trying to read the first book as well. Yes, I'm one of those people who usually watches the movie first THEN reads the book. I'm the worst. Here's to hoping I can make it through a few more books before they show a new season. I have until sometime next year, which makes me happy and want to cry all at the same time.
Let's make the rest of this update quick as I have about a million tons of laundry to get to (and a poopy diaper that needs changing)...
- I posted awhile back on The Indigo Forest's FB page that I'm coming back and I'll have new stuff soon...yeah, that didn't happen. (okay, well I might have some new lovely lavender beeswax polish made, but no labels yet. (Did I mention I have 3 boys??)
- If any of you have seen my instragram account lately, you might have noticed that it's mostly been posts of the free samples I've been getting. Seriously, it's crazy. I get asked all the time how I do it. As if I have some magical powers and I'm somehow able to get people to give me loads of free stuff. Nope, I just simply ask. Seriously, it's that easy. Be polite, honest and most of the time, someone is willing to let you try their stuff. I've been able to try out so many fantastic products by simply asking! (and for a mostly broke mama, it's awesome.)
Okay, so I thought I'd have more to say to wrap this up, but I was wrong.
If you'd like to keep in touch:
Thank you to anyone who endured this less than stellar blog post. Seriously.
