and what did I see? (finally...)
I guess Punxsutawney Phil was right: 6 more weeks of Winter. Not gonna lie, I was a little excited to wake up to snow this morning. I've been super grateful for the mild weather we've had, of all the winters to train for and run a half marathon this one has been the best BUT we do need water in this desert.
2011 was a hard year, I found myself in some pretty deep dark emotional pits. New Year's Eve was tough: I just sat thinking "Another year gone and still no pregnancy/baby" tears where shed and Nick kicked into loving/sweet/comforting husband mode. I'm done being depressed or at least I tell myself that, I still have hard days but they're not as frequent. Running has become my therapy and I've found peace and comfort in my testimony that Heavenly Father DOES have a plan for ME although I'm still working on having faith/patience with that plan. So I've been on a domestic/cooking/crafting/running kick to keep myself busy/occupied.
I LOVE how this wreath turned out.
It was really easy and not overly time consuming
I was able to get wood blocks from my Dad for free,
the paper was on sale at Joann's and the vinyl letters cost me $3
A little paint, mod podge and glitter:
I've been finding and trying out A LOT of new recipes, Nick has been a wonderful dinner guinea pig. I need to do better at taking pictures and posting the successful recipes I've found
Good thing I've taken up running as a hobby :)
