I can't believe how much time has passed since I last posted. This last year has seemed so hectic! How can it be Autumn time again? My baby started Kindergarten a few weeks ago-definitely bittersweet. It's so sad to think, she is already five years old and does not need her mama 24/7. But on the other hand, Praise the Lord, she is five years old and does not need her mama 24/7!! Ha! I have three precious hours every afternoon to myself. For the first week, I confess, I was lost! I had no idea what to do with actual blocks of time dedicated to myself. There is only so much house to clean and laundry to do. Shopping is not really an option since our budget is fairly limited. Ah, then I remembered. What were those things I really used to enjoy? Oh yes! Hobbies! Like, decorating and scrapbooking. Could it be that I could actually do those things again? So, I started by digging out decorations for my favorite season-Fall. I did a little bargain shopping at HomeGoods (my absolute favorite store for home decor) and Michaels and Hobby Lobby. Gotta love those internet coupons! I also got my new Scentsy order in, so my house smells divine-like pumpkin marshmallow. I did a little baking. And I did an Autumn mini-album which I will be posting in the next few days. So, nothing super-spectacular here, but I am sharing pics of my feeble attempts at getting the house ready to welcome Autumn. It felt so good getting my decorating mojo going again. Thanks for looking!
