Hello again!

Soooo, I thought I would start blogging again! This past year has honestly been the hardest of my life. I made the decision to end my almost six year marriage for several different (yet all upsetting) reasons. It put me (and the Sprouts) in an less-than-ideal situation, but in the long run, it was for the best for all involved. I feel like I am a much better person... so much stronger than I ever thought I could ever be. I have been, and am continuing, to discovery myself- who I truly am, and it's been an amazing journey, even if it started under horrible circumstances.

We have been living with my mom since February of last year. While I'm eternally grateful for her opening her house to us, it's been rough. Definitely not enough room- the Sprouts and I all share a teeny bedroom and a single bed. My sewing and business stuff is crammed into every possible nook and cranny, making running my Etsy shop hard to do. HOWEVER, I just signed a lease on an amazing house with plenty of space, which we'll be moving into in 9 days (!!!).

My last post here on this blog was titled In a Fog. But lately, it's been a bit more sunny!

Hi April :) So glad you're back. I'm not really writing anymore.

I am so sorry to hear of your difficult past year, but am so happy to hear how great things are looking for you. You are incredibly strong to end a difficult relationship.

You might remember my living situation? Damp hell hole of a house? Well we are moving to, in about 5 months time :)

I am so glad to see you back. I too am trying to restart blogging ... but it comes and goes.

Hugs to you and your family for the past year ... I am so glad the sun is beginning to shine. I always believe that out of all situations comes good ... although sometimes it is hard to see!

I look forward to reading your posts and seeing your beautiful pictures.

Congradulations on getting out on your own again! Just remember tough times build character. I am now expecting #4 around the end of December, not planned and had to change my school plans but working it out! All is well. Hang in there.
