I am so wanting to take a weekend up north in the mountains.
I had a very lovely time last time with some scrappy friends.
(happy sigh)


On another note, my scrapping mojo (desire) is and has been real low. Not sure why. 
I think I need to start pulling scrappy stuff together to purge what I haven't used or won't use and get the yard sale planned.

Plus, I decided I will be moving into an apartment or townhouse with my friend Deb, within about 4-6 months, so I need to purge for that reason as well.

Do Over Please or Toddlers, Teenagers and Trying Times.

Ok, so I am sure you have heard of "do overs" right?
Well, I am shouting DO OVER with regards to blogging every week or more.
My friend Amanda sweetly reminded me today, so here I am!

I am still trying to get some changes made in my life. I am trying to be sensitive to the move of God.
It can be very difficult. I wish it wasn't, but it has been lately.
I seriously want to go back to being the always-happy person I was just over two years ago.

Life has been so incredibly busy. We now have three adults, two teenagers, one toddler and three dogs living in this less than 2000 sq ft house. To say things are going smoothly, wouldn't be completely true, but to say things are going badly, would not be true either. We are all trying to figure out how to make things work, not get on each others nerves too much, and be able to cohabitate without too much drama.
That said, having my 19 mo old great niece Drea around has been such a joy!

She keeps us all in stitches with her amazing language skills. Every word with an S has a lisp on it. And she repeats EVERYTHING said, so let's just say, so far so good on that! haha!

She just adores our dogs. No, I mean REALLY adores them. When I yell to the dogs, "Time to eat!" she is right there, trying to help. Even literally hand-feeding them. Especially the Roxy, the puppy.

OK, so I will do better with this blogging thing. It actually was nice putting these things to words. :)

I am back!!!

So here I am after a very long break.
Yes, my blogging skills are definitely NOT mad skillz. HAHA! But here I am to try again.
I want to blog here as well as post some crafting projects.
So I renamed my blog to First Light Of Dawn. Catchy, right?

The above photo shows what will be my three modes of daily devotional and inspiration, beginning tomorrow. My Bible, my journal and a singles devotional that I won at church camp a couple years ago and never read.
I know I have said this before, right here on this blog, but I will say it again.

Life changes as of tomorrow.

"I can't" and "I won't" will be replaced with "I WILL."
I will be trying to blog at least once or twice a week, and hopefully much more.
So sit back, read, laugh, cry, smile, and pray with me for big, positive life changes!
