Hello everyone!!! I have missed this little spot on the web. I am obviously not good at keeping this blog up and running. For years (10 to be exact) before I had this blog I had another one and I was faithful and regular. I loved it. I love blogging, writing, and catching up with others. I have made life long friends and pen pals. I have had support when I wasn't sure I would, prayers that covered me and so on. Blogging is amazing. But time is so limited. It takes a lot to blog. Pictures, topics, downloading, and etc.
On a lighter note....I can't believe December is here. It is crazy. I can't believe 2017 is almost here. Just seems like I wrote a post about my thoughts on the new year and my one word focus for 2016 a few months ago. Now I am already pondering about next year.
I planned to keep December simple, Christ-Centered, and SLOW and I have achieved as much as I can during this time of year. I have decided that if I really wanted to scale back, say no, and not over eat and over spend I need to lock myself up somewhere....HAHAHA!!! Humor there!!! I am kidding. Maybe!
I scaled back on décor this year but it is still so pretty, did all our Christmas cards at the end of November, I took our own photo to put inside and that saved a lot of money, and went through the calendar and only chose parties and events we wanted to make sure we attended. We have said no to several things and that is okay. We are still having a very filling and busy season already. I can't believe how many years I spent running myself crazy trying to attend everything.
I asked the kids to choose their top thing they wanted to make sure they got to experience in the season and that has helped cut back on other things that maybe was more my forcing then them really liking. :)
I hope you are all well!!! Just wanted to pop by and say hello and hope you all have a wonderful week ahead.
