It’s been too long…

April 30th!? April 30th is way too far away for a post. So so much has happened since that last post… marriage…new (dream school) job…moving… being a wife…a new commuter (72 miles round trip)…Henry (dog blog mascot) got cancer this summer (and he’s ok after surgery, THANK GOD). I wanted to craft all summer and instead I was going through all these life changes.

We started another volleyball season 2 weeks ago. So that’s a.k.a. for exhaustion, stressful decisions, awesome situations, constant mind processing and analyzing (even when I’m trying to sleep), and more exhaustion. But with a new last name, I NEEDED to paint new letters for my classroom because we start school in a week. This week is going to be super hectic and really this was the only day to get it done. I originally was going to lay in bed all day bc it was raining, but it stopped, and productivity seeped throughout me and I did something about it. :)

I have been looking for a good chair to sit in the front of my room for years and I found one at a garage sale! I only paid $25!!! So I painted it to look pretty and I’m real excited about it. The letters took forever because my new last name is 13 letters long (as opposed to my precious 8 before). But I’m embracing it with every passing day. And if a name change comes with the fun of being married, I’d take it every day. ;)

Blog chair It was so so great to sit in the garage and craft. Besides the one million mosquito bites I got, I truly enjoyed myself (like I always do when I create) and it was so relaxing while in the midst of a stressful month. I don’t know why I put it off so much. So hopefully when season starts to settle (mid-Septemberish), I can think of more reasons to craft. :) Until then…
