Where has the time gone?  I have come to the realization that for me to be truthful with my self and to succeed with the blog and my shop that I am going to have to be truthful with this blog.  Make sense?  For so long I have been so frightened of putting myself out there, writing about my life and what is really going on because in the past with just Facebook and one small status I have caused and stirred up so much conterversery.   But I guess I am tired of being scared and I guess a little tired of being worried about what certain people think of me.

First off, here is what you should know, the basics to what you should always come back too.

I have a huge heart
I love my family and they come first
I love God, and without Him I truly nothing, even though I may not quote scriptures daily on my blog. He is my world and light unto my feet.
I cannot sit still and must stay busy
I am people pleaser.

So Here is where I am today.  I am gone from my previous full time job of 8 years and am now totally working from home. STILL working 2 jobs, which are my shop, Rustic Homemade (found here on Etsy) and for a big Company that has made it possible for me to do everything from home.  It has taken a bit of getting used too since I was used to seeing people everyday and have your run of the mill conversations.  Now, I just have conversations with my self and I am not that intersting.  All this happened back in July and also since then Rustic has stayed fairly busy and I anticipate the holdiay season will be as well.  I love that!  I have a brain that never rest, always thinking of new ideas, things I need to do and building helps me focus and relax.  Who knew a circular saw could be relaxing?  LOL.

I also have a few more dining tables in the works for a few friends, some I have built, some I am building.  Really I am waiting for the weather to be a bit more cooler because here in Florida building in 90 degree weather is brutal!

Jackson contiues to do well and is too smart for his own good.  We are almost potty trained and he will be turning 3 on the 24th of this month. WHAT!  Crazy.  I still think of all the people that have yet to even meet him, even family and think, "man, how can time have flown by so quickly?"

So my future hope with my blog is that I will stay up with it, posting more of my shop and maybe some do's and don'ts.  We will see where this part of my life/journey takes me.  Wish me luck and try to be nice to me as I slowly enter the blogging world.  Well I have been here, just I have never shared it with anyone before.

I always like to leave with a random picture of Jackson, because, well...he is cute.  This is from the Air show this past weekend.
