Sunshine and Swing Sets...

Today was such a pretty sunshiney day compared to yesterday. A sweet friend and I took a walk for lunch and it was very refreshing. It is amazing how good nice weather can make you feel. After work I took the little one to the park where I got in a two mile walk and she and I played on the swings and slide. My sweet mom was kind enough to go along and spend the evening with us. Lately I have been trying to lose weight and it has been quiet harder than I imagined it would be, enough talk about that already :)

On one of my last posts I mentioned cutting back drastically on scrapping supplies. I will admit I did this, but you know what I found out? I stopped creating all together. I missed the me time. Although it was more like me & Abby playing and I would run and work on something while she takes a nap, I missed it! Being busy with working 40 hours a week, full time housewife & mommy (best job ever - no complaints at all), and going to school full time, I needed something for me to unwind. I decided to start back buying if it means I will start back creating! I did and it does! (I even gave the blog a little face lift and found time to remove the Christmas deco!)

Here is my 2 Sketches Card! Can you believe that I am THIS early! I must be serious ;)

Clear transparency, PTI My Punny Valentine, Offray Ribbon, PTI vintage button, Papers from February Paper Playground kit.

God Bless You,
