I really got to get on top of blogging and updating my new website. I have been remiss due to recovering from the holidays, getting back on track — and now I have just finished applying to substitute teach. So shall see how that goes if and when I get a call!
Took a fantastic day trip with my oldest son this past weekend to Starved Rock and Explored some of the frozen waterfalls. Just gorgeous and spectacular. If you get a chance before they melt, you should really try and check them out!
So — the holidays have come and gone. But you might still find yourself stuck in some of those “food cravings” you started and are trying to get away from. This was a neat find about what those cravings mean I found one time and what to do or eat in place of them to satisfy them as you try and wean yourself from those habits………
And so it is! A brand new year! 2014 ~ so excited to be starting this new year fresh and brand new. I never can seem to get my family together to do a photo shoot before or around the Christmas time for a Christmas card. So, over the years I have somehow delayed and sent out New Year’s Cards instead. But I prefer this method now after all the holiday hustle and bustle and red and green Christmas colors. And so it is — our 2014 New Year’s Card!
Good morning to all the amazing folks I know in my life. I’m deep into learning WordPress for building my new site/blog. I really had no clue how vastly this program was used in the world today. As my old template website was cancelled and thrown into some deep dark unknown technical cave I had no idea existed, lol, I was forced to move into this format a lot quicker. But this all made me realize the impact of change in your life and it really is true….Change happens and you have the control how you react and the option to grow with it So, that is exactly what I am doing. I’m learning and absorbing all this new information. I really do like it and I realize how much I love knowing the backend of things and being able to control and manipulate.
Anyhow, I’m so thankful for this growing opportunity! One day until my family embarks on our annual train trip journey to the City of Chicago. It’s our family tradition now — ever since we moved here. To take the train to Chicago each Thanksgiving and spend it usually at Embassy Suites and find a restaurant to eat at. The kids are excited like always. I was trying to think how and if I could make this trip a little more fun by way of incorporating a scavenger hunt in the city, on the train or something like that. Still thinking about it………..
Good fabulous Monday morning! 1 month until Christmas today. And I am in my goal setting stage for 2014. Along with that comes changes in my online presence. So, I am currently making the huge leap from a website, I have had for 13+ years, to a blog instead! I’m very excited about doing this, but along with it comes some hard work and a learning curve as I build it. So, thank you for staying with me and grow with me as I embark on this exciting change!
