Lost In Life

It has been a while since I've posted. Spring is gone and here I'm facing summer. Oh, how I love summer. My garden is my favorite place to be. Over the last few months we've redone our kitchen. I was the designer and my husband was the carpenter, tiler, painter, etc... It looks great. I can't thank my sweet husband enough for his patience and attention to detail! I will post pictures soon.

Sometimes I get lost in life. Being a wife and mom is what I love. I enjoy my life. It is slower paced and much quieter. Having "Fibro" is a gift. That not to say going up a few dress sizes, sore muscles, and sheer exhaustion has it's frustrating moments. It has taught me that living my life is what is important. My old self was about doing, going, striving. Now it is about being PRESENT in my life. Living Joy is about the simple things in life. It's Saturday's morning breakfast with all the fixin's. Ice tea on hot summer day. Reading a good book in my garden. Playing board games with my family. Hanging out with my parents. Seeing my parents dote on my son. Seeing my husband's smile. And of course creating things from vintage and junk items..... I like to call it Vintage Chic! I'll posting pictures of my creations.........soon.
