Happy New Year!

Hello friends...is anyone out there?  :)

Happy New Year!!!
Do you pick a "word"?  I am normally one to write out long lists of resolutions, but for the first time, I didn't do that this year.
My intention is to simplify, to be authentic, and to show gratitude.
Every day.

We stayed home again last night and had a fire outside in our little fire pit.  A nice dinner, smores, some fireworks, and we then we rang in the new year quietly with almost everyone sleeping.


I've been connected to Instagram daily,and little by little I've made the decision to blog again!
When I left here in September, I wasn't sure what I needed.  I just felt like God was telling me it was time for a change.  I have really enjoyed being away from the computer and living!  I've had time to reflect on the products that I want to make available...I needed to learn about creating balance in my life (again!).  To put my family and my own personal needs before work.  So I am trying again...this time with God as the focus...it's easy to lose track sometimes, isn't it?

I miss recording my daily life (well maybe not daily!) here on the blog.
But the visual journal has been such a special place for me, that I want to come back.


I have opened up the etsy shop again...and I'm excited to show you a lot of new items that will be there!
I'm in the process of creating a new website.  It will have lots of groovy new features on it, things that are spiritually important for me to share, and lots of new art.  I was hoping to launch the site today, but it's not quite ready.  So soon!  I'm looking forward to it :)


I hope you all had a blessed Christmas and safe and happy New Year.
I'm grateful to be in this space again and I look forward to connecting with some of my dear blogging friends again.
