Measure Your Life in Love

Hi Everybody!

I’m finally back! 

I didn’t intend to take an entire year off blogging, but a whole lot of crazy stuff happened last year and all my creative energy seemed to be sucked into a giant black hole.  

But 2016 is a new year!  

I’ve taken lots of time to think, read, and recharge and I’m throwing myself full steam ahead into life.  
I learned a lot last year. Living through 2015, brought to the surface a lot of things which I already knew deep down but maybe had hidden; like no matter how hard I try, sometimes I just can’t protect my kids from going through traumatic experiences and that’s okay because usually they come out of it stronger; that I need to be thankful every day for all the love, family, and friendships I’ve been given; and that for me the purpose of life is love.  

The love of my husband, my kids, my parents and brothers, and in-laws, the love of my friends and maybe this sounds weird, but the love of all life, everyone and every living creature I come across. Life is precious and I intend to fully live and love in each moment I’m given. To smell a rose, and feel its petal’s velvety softness, to rescue a ladybug drowning in my dishwater, to reaching a box on the top shelf for an elderly lady at the grocery store.  If I can brighten one life each day I will have done my job.   

I’m excited about this year and the changes that I’m making, in my blog and my life.  I can’t see what the future holds but I know that as long as I live and love in the moment, everything else will be okay.  

I missed you guys and I can’t wait to see what you have all been up to!  



  1. Welcome back! It's so hard being a parent and wanting to protect your children but knowing they have to suffer to build their own character--and sometimes just because there's nothing we can do to change things. Here's wishing you an epic 2016!

    1. Thanks, it's good to be back! And yeah it's hard when there's nothing you can do sometimes! Wishing you an awesome 2016 as well!

  2. It's great to see you back! I'm sorry for the trouble you experienced last year but glad you have come out stronger on the other side. Happy 2016!

    1. Thanks! Well we had been pretty lucky for a long time, so I guess it was bound to hit sooner or later! :)
