Yep I'm here... AND I got all crafty {V-day bunting}

So um yeah it's been almost a month since I last posted...oops.  So much for being back.  The blog and crafting has been put on the back burner because my focus has been on other things, stressful things but very important things.  Vague enough for you?  And because of the stress from these things I have had NADA motivation to craft and/or blog.  I could have blogged about Lily peeing on the potty for the first time or that Natalie puked outside on our deck in the snow or that my beautiful rug has been ruined by dog pee but i figured you may not find that too riveting or pin worthy ;)

BUT today I got all crafty. I was inspired by one of my bff's Ali, who makes the most amazing buntings.  They are always perfection. Check out her shop to see for yourself! I had the idea in my head for awhile but finally found the motivation to bring it to life.

And here is what I came up with.

A pretty valentine bunting.

Kraft paper, doilies, and paper hearts.

Simple but pretty.

So thanks Ali. XO

And before I go my pal Ryan has something to tell you...

And in case you didn't know...

Hehe...isn't pinterest FANTASTIC?  It's the little things, right?
Later gators.

New year, new attitude and a crap load of pictures

Happy New Year!!  Hope everyone had a safe and fun night ringing in 2012!  Natalie was so excited this year because she was allowed to stay up and she actually made it to midnight!  Mama on the other hand was hurtin' by 11 :)

Even though I didn't get much sleep, I woke up feeling energized and ready to start this year off on the right foot.  2011 was full of many highs and some definite lows.  As far as this blog goes, it has grown and changed a lot in the last year.  I feel that this year I really became comfortable with my blogging "voice" and you guys have welcomed me with open arms.  I have met so many amazing people and many have become lifelong friendships.  I was overwhelmed by your love and support when I told you about the elephant in the room and then when I needed to take a break.  Knowing that I have people that love me and care about me even though we had never "met" has been such a blessing and has helped more then I could ever explain.  I have no expectations this year when it comes to my depression.  I can only take it one day at a time and hope for more good days then bad but accept each day for what it is.

With that said I only have one resolution this year and that is...

Life is too short and my girls are growing too fast.  Even though I have no control over my depression, I do have control on doing things that bring joy to my life.

And I have a lot to be thankful for and joyful about.  

Take this last year for example...
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you a year in pictures...
