Wow! It's been far too long since I posted anything on this blog...anyone still out there? I look back on the pictures from my last entry and it feels like a lifetime ago! SO much has changed in our family since July 2012. Here we are, the second week of September, 2014. In those two years we've seen two of our kids graduate high school (one with her associates degree), one become a father for the first time, one move on to new adventures and I spent a time working outside of the home....something that was short lived and was packed full of lessons for this mama. We also had to say goodbye to my husbands father, something that is still difficult even after 7 months of trying to adjust to life without this amazing man.
Crazy how quickly life can change, and how different our lives look now compared to then. We are now in a huge transition phase of life, seeing kids grow and move on, welcoming a cherished grand-baby and figuring out how to adjust all of what we've always done to fit the new reality that is our life. Even our pantry looks different...why is that something that I struggle so much to adjust to? I still want to cook and can enough to feed half of the free world. I'll adjust, it just may take a while.
So, my hope is that I can get back into the habit of blogging again. I've missed it, missed the friendships, the sharing, the creativity and the ideas shared by my fellow bloggers. Hopefully there are still a few of my blogging friends out there...and new ones to be found. :)
