Dusting off the old blog...and possibly a new tradition.

I have had absolutely no desire to sit in front of my computer and blog over the last few months.  Partly because life has taken precedence and partly because the letter E is not working well, causing me to use spell check a LOT!

Life has been hectic since school started.  Lots of trips to OCTC for M with a final diagnosis of PDD NOS...more on that another day.  Lots of trying to figure myself out and what I really want in life.  I'm not that much closer to an answer; I don't know that I will be anytime soon either.

Now that December is here I feel a sense of calm coming over me.  I'm not sure why, but I force myself this time of year to stop and really reflect on what is important.  My kids, my family, health, togetherness....I could go on and on. 

This year I'm going to try and get it captured in a December Daily album.  I'm not making any big promises to myself or anyone to keep at this daily, but I'm going to try to take a picture a day, and tell a story of my December a day.  My plan is to once a week spend about an hour pulling it together.  Im using Kelly Purkey's December Daily kit, Ali Edwards December Daily Digital Overlays and a Simple Stories album with divided page protecors.  I think I have chosen simple and stress free but time will tell if I made simple choices.

I did my cover today.  It took an hour max.  I love that I was able to bring it together so fast without sacrificing time with The Bigs.  Its simple, just what I wanted it t be.

Whatever your December brings you, I hope you have a wonderful holiday season.  I'm off to work until the wee hours of the morn so that you might find fabulous for less.
