Summer in Review~ 2010

The initial purpose of this blog was to give family and friends who live far away a fun place to go to see what our daily life is like. So I could post pictures of the kids where I can write a little something more than a caption under the photo and tell them what we were doing on a given day. It has since turned into something so much different. I realized that I liked talking to other moms and blogging about crafting.
Who doesn't like to get gratification on what they put so much hard work into?
Whether it be motherhood or the arts.
 I love keeping up with other moms and realizing that I'm not the only one who has difficulty on the subject of raising kids . Being a mom is the best reward, and the love of your children outweigh the hardships, but sometimes it gets hard. So it's nice to know you're not the only one out there.
 I love the crafting outlet that this blog allows me. You know you can spends hours, days, heck even weeks trying to finish a project and you show it to your husband and he looks at it for about 10 seconds and says, Looks great honey. Really? Are you sure you looked? I know I've been lacking in the department of posting crafty stuff. The truth is that I haven't really done anything. I know, its crazy. Our summer has been so busy that I can't find time to sit and do anything.But I am currently little by little working on a quilt for my sister. It's going to be super special and very meaningful. I will share when I'm done piecing the top.
 The last thing I love about blogging is photography. It's a long time passion of mine and I'm grateful to be able to talk and share with other people who share the love with me. I've learned alot and love the outlet that snapping pictures provides. I may not have been sewing, gluing or glittering, but I have been taking alot of pictures!
So now that school has started, and it's safe to say that summer is officially over (YAY!! I can't wait for fall!!!) I will wrap up with our summer in photo's. I have so many from all our journeys, and I didn't chose the best ones to share, but the ones that mean alot to me!!
This is what this weeks theme on I heart faces is!!
