I'm still here and I have an update

I started this blog back in 2008 when I had less time. Today I have more time and I can't seem to update it as much I would like to.

This blog was always just for me. I'm won't lie, I did get a kick knowing that I had one or two views here and there. But today, I realized that one day my grandsons will see this blog and how am I ever going explain the gaps?  I decided instead of explaining I will update, update, update.

My boys today. Dominick is 6 and Adrian is 1. I can't tell you how many pictures I have of them like this. Adrian adores Dominick. And Dominick loves him like a little brother. I am blessed beyond words.

I downsized from to a Condo and I love it. I miss my house but no regrets. Not much has changed except I don't have a giant pool in my yard and all the expense and work. Here are a few pictures  of my craft room.

It's a work in progress. I am trying to make it look more like a guest room and less like storage but its so hard.

OK that's enough. Stayed tuned for more updates and lots of pictures. Oh and heads up, I will try to watch my grammar as much as possible but I'm not stressing over it. So if you find typos, ignored them.
how about this face?

I'm Alive!

A little update

I sold my house and moved into a condo and I love it.  We gutted the condo with the exception of the bathrooms that were dated but decent. Pretty much everything we just did to the house we did to the Condo.  Same ceilings, walls, floors and lastly the kitchen. No regrets, just less space.

But more importantly updates on my boys

Dominick will be 6 in November and started Kindergarten this August.

and Adrian will be 1 in October. He's just like his daddy.

I still scrapbook and quilt but not as much because my room looks like this

and in case you didn't see this picture.
This is a still from a video of Derek Hough giving me a shout out.

Matthew works at the Hilton Boca Resort and he was a judge that day.

In case you were wondering why I stopped blogging, it's because my laptop crashed and I never replaced it. I hope to remedy that soon.

Until the next time
