My little Livie is all sorts of excited! She exceeded her cookie goal by over 22 boxes!! Thanks to all my amazing friends and family that helped that happen:)
We will be busy little bees when those cookies come in — delivering all over town!!
Making friends as an adult shouldn’t be so hard…. Read more here.
This week I have been absolutely bitten by the bug.
The bug to create something from nothing.
To craft bags, skirts, dresses, aprons, curtains…
pillows, purses, and hair bows…
Yes, the SEWING bug!!!
Abbie received a sewing machine for Christmas and I have had one collecting dust in the master closet for at least 4 years. With her desire to learn to sew I just had to resolve that I needed to learn!
I’ve been blessed to meet some mommas who are incredibly talented and are willing to be extraordinarily patient with a girl like me with 0 creative talent!
Introducing…..my first project:
The kids are home from school in honor of the remarkable Martin Luther King Jr. who helped facilitate change in our world. One of my most memorable college lectures was by Dr. John Ernst in American Studies, my very first semester of college – ever. I searched this morning, to no avail, for the lecture notes since it’s been 10 years since that class. So though I can’t recall the details, I can recall the inspiration I felt in my heart.
May his legacy inspire us to stand up for what we believe in and be a positive voice for activism in our communities.
