A new love

I don't know what it is about them, but succulents have totally caught my eye and my heart! I found these at the Flower Mart in LA last week. Something just tells me that I will have more retro looking plants in my backyard in the near future. . . . :)
For some reason this one reminds me of that cartoon, The Snorks! Remember that fun show?!

Had to do it!

Really, I'm not trying to show of my adorable little boy, but I really wanted to let you all know about this awesome etsy shop that sells awesome bowties and neckties for little boys. So go check her shop out, it's amazing!

I'm a follower. . .

Okay, well I have been known for saying that I would never. . . I see it as rather narcissistic and meaningless. Well, I guess I did see it that way. But after many hours of research and contemplating, I do follow and am being followed on twitter. If you would like to join me in following others and maybe following me too, you can here:
There is a lot going on here right now. . . . big things are coming. . . . . :) Have a great day!

Let me be real with you: It really is not easy to serve your family, homeschool, keep up the house (to a livable mess), run a new and growing business, and be one woman. There are many days that I think to myself, yeah, I'm doing okay, I've got everything under control. And then BAM a child gets really sick, I get a rush of orders, etc, etc, etc.

So this is pretty much what happened last week. I had this ultimate plan of how to get all of my bags done for the show, how to still get schooling done and recooperate from it all and get back to business this week. Well, needless to say, that plan did not work out. And you know what, life goes on. I am learning that sometimes I just have to let some things go, and ask God to grant me the grace to keep going. He is so faithful! And honestly, I have to remember that my husband and children ALWAYS come before Rejoice! Bags.

Moral: when things get bonkers, scale back and get back to what you know God's word says. If you're a woman, you make sure that your family is taken care of, and then the business stuff falls into place. Man, I really need to tape this to my head so that I remember it more often!

Someone suggested an awesome book to me this week called Shopping for Time by Carolyn Mahaney. Let me know if you have read it and what you thought about it. . . .
