    Hey everyone! I know I've been M.I.A. for a while. It's been crazy busy trying to finish school. I am glad to say that WE ARE DONE! Woohoo! I am so blessed that God allowed me to complete yet another year of homeschooling. He gave me grace sufficient each day to keep pressing on. Thank you Jesus! I will Lord willing be posting some updates regarding CTMH. I also have been working on making a few bows again, my love for photography and more. I know it sounds like I might be too busy, but really most of my time lately has been spent with family and friends. Although I end up tired and the end of the day, I must say that I am glad it's because my time goes to building memories and friendships with the people I love and that God has blessed us with so much. I pray you have a blessed week.

    In His love,

    Mother's Day

    This Mother's Day we decided to just hang out with family. We went to church then bought some takeout and watched a movie at my moms. Three of my aunts where in town so it was a little extra fun. What made it so fun was that our family is full of crazy nutty people. We laughed so hard our stomachs hurt. The cake below I photographed was not as delicious as it looked. :( Bummer... But it looked good enough to take a picture of. Lol... Btw, we watched a movie worth watching. It is called "The Cross" and you can find it here. Enjoy!

    New Blog!

    Hello everyone! It's been a very long week without access to my blog since Blogger's system crashed. It's been extremely frustrating, but I came to the decision to just take my chance and create a new blog using blogger once again. I searched other blog sites, but it's been hard getting used to them. I just hope this one works out and doesn't fail me. I will be updating my blog appearance and be adding more to it as I get time. Mean while thank you for your patients. I would love to follow your blog so please leave me a comment since I don't have access to my old account. Thank you for understanding!
