And I feel good. I am at a real happy place in my life and although I am not 100% where I want to be developmentally I feel really good about who I am and my life in general. Over the past year I have learned a lot. I think I am becoming a better wife, and a more patient mother. I am learning to have a more forgiving heart and I strive to be less judgemental of others, as I have been judged unfairly recently and I know first hand the pain it causes.
I know that there are people who are in my life for a reason and others for a season and when their time is up, I take what I have learned to be a better person. I don't hold grudges as negativity is draining and I honestly wish peace and blessings among everyone. I love meeting new people, forging new friendships and cultivating the friendships that I already have. I love my family throughout our many different personalities and I am soooo comforted in the knowledge that they have my back without question. And most of all, no matter what anyone else thinks, I Like ME!
Here is a layout from my birthday last year, now I have 364 more days to get this year's photos scrapped, lol.

I wear my pink silicone bracelet every day that says "peace, love, cure" but last night while shopping I stopped in at Dots and got this blingy love bracelet because all of the proceeds go to breast cancer research. Some people think that all of the breast cancer awareness promotions are a bit much but to this day over thirty years later I remember seeing my mother's crude scar from her masectomy for the first time and how shockingly sad that was for me as a child, so until there is a cure we are not doing enough! Think Pink every day!

My niece asked me to make baby shower invitations for her god-sister who is expecting her first child. I was happy to do so especially since I don't have many invitation samples to feature on my website. I used the Cricut Craft Room to weld the base for the beehive card base. I embossed the white layer with the Swiss Dot cuttlebug folder and chalked the edges for depth. The pooh figure is popped up with foam tape and I embellished the bow on top with a rhinestone in the middle, the Mom-to-be loved them. I made 32 and she just asked for 20 more, WOW!

We went away for the weekend of September 30th so I thought I missed my Friday flowers but when I walked in the house the following Monday afternoon, these were waiting for me on the dining room table. Classic Red roses, my favorites.
