Still here…

I’m still here.  I know I haven’t posted since EASTER, but I’m still here.  Trying to prioritize the things that are truly important, and reluctantly letting the other (sometimes more fun) things slide for awhile.  (Like blogging…)  I’m working my way through cleaning the house, saying Goodbye Junk to massive amounts of clutter, and making room for our friends to come and visit this summer.  I’m rearranging, reorganizing, and rethinking the way we do things.  It’s slowly but surely starting to make a difference, and I’m starting to both see and feel the results.  It’s much more peaceful.  It’s less stressful.  It’s easier to clean.  It’s easier to relax.

I’m working on my photography.  A little.  When I can, which isn’t much yet.  But I’ll have more time for that soon enough.  It will come.  I just need to be patient and find joy in putting the important things first, so that the other stuff can fall in line after.   Each day, each minute, each chore even, is a blessing, and I am thankful for all of them.  Even the dishes.  Darn it.  😉

I’m looking forward to a summer of fun with my boys….the last one before they are BOTH in school full days next year at the elementary school.  Kind of sad, but mostly I want to enjoy every minute this summer and savor it.  Make memories.  Have fun.  Be intentional.

Here’s to a summer of fun for you too.

May you be blessed with joy, laughter, fun and happy memories in the making.

Yay! Glad to see you are here! But sounds like you have been busy. When you get done, can you come lend me a hand 😉

Hope you & your boys have a great summer!

I tend to disappear from the e-world from time to time too. I love it that you are taking time with your boys. Have fun!

Hi Katie! I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who needs to drop out of online life sometimes. It feels like everyone else has it so together sometimes, and it’s nice to know I’m not alone. I love the title of your blog. Looking forward to checking it out!
