So you have dreams…now what??

For the most part, we all leave high school and college dreaming of grandeur and fantastic and purposeful lives. We are quickly given a reality check, as life interrupts and we suddenly find ourselves left in a world that seems uncertain and at times scary. Searching and looking for security, we grab on to what appears safe and known, and so we follow the crowed day in and day out, just going through the motions and dreaming of a day, where we will finally be able to reach these once forgotten dreams.

Well, the reality is that perhaps as children and even grown adults, we are encouraged far more than needed. We are taught to dream, but not the steps necessary to gain the character building qualities needed to achieve them. Perhaps we should have been taught more about taking purposeful actions and perseverance. Today’s post is a video blog, please check it out! I hope it inspires someone to just leap….while strap to a parachute, of course.

I AM BACK!

It has been a long hiatus guys, but I am finally back! So what has happened in the past year, you ask? Too much. Mayah and I have moved and are back to living on our own, which has been really nice. We now have a new dog named Winston and we have ventured into growing a garden. Life as usual, continues to be eventful. All these new changes have given me lots to post about and I am very excited to hear from you all in return. I would love to get feedback from you all on what topics interest you and what project/diy’s you would like to see. Hope to hear from yall!

Lili and Maddie..

So here it is, our first foray into the world of blogging. What can we say..well, we actually have lots to say and this seems like the best method to get our thoughts on everyday life out to all of you. We are daughters, sisters, mothers, wife and me, the single mom, with tons experiences, craftiness and tips on life that we hope can be of value to mothers and all women from all walks of life.

Here we will capture small bits and pieces of our daily life, be it diy’s, craft projects, fashion and beauty, lifestyle topics, recipes and ways to just simplify life (who doesn’t want a simple life?!). If anything we hope this can become, the place you go to for that fifteen minute work break, the first place you check for that easy crock pot recipe, your favorite blog to check into before bed, because you simply need a laugh, at the end of a hectic day.

This has been a year in the making and we hope you make it, your home away from home.
